What is Community Acupuncture?


In America, where acupuncture isn’t always covered by insurance, or reimbursement can be tricky, affordability is a growing concern. We want to help be a part of the solution!


Our Houston clinic is now offering community acupuncture sessions several days a week, to help our patients either supplement their full treatments, or welcome in new patients who want to make acupuncture a regular part of their wellness routine, without breaking the bank. Community-style acupuncture is a return to acupuncture practiced in a group setting, which is common in East Asia.


Community acupuncture simply means that treatments are done in reclining chairs in a quiet, group setting, rather than in a private room. Needles are placed primarily on the legs, feet, hands, arms, head and face, so there’s no need to remove any clothing. Is this style just as effective as a regular treatment? The answer is YES! There are many styles of acupuncture, and we are personally trained and highly-skilled in distal-style needling, which is the type of acupuncture administered in community-style settings. 


With every treatment, we work to address not only our patients’ specific concerns, but the root cause(s) of their ailments through the use of East Asian medicine diagnosis. We believe that acupuncture is a powerful tool for healing, as well as for preventative care, and should be affordable and accessible for all.



One of the benefits of community-style is the shared camaraderie in the experience of receiving acupuncture. Friends and family members are welcome to come and be treated together, lending support to one another during the process of healing.

Info + Guidelines for our Community Clinic


  • Community acupuncture appointments are $50 and last 30-40 minutes. 

  • Community is strictly acupuncture, and does not include any additional services, like cupping, gua sha, etc. If you are interested in a full, traditional treatment, which includes these modalities, please book here.

  • Patients who No-Show, or fail to give at least 12-hour notice prior to appointment cancellation will be charged a $35 No-Show Fee.

  • Please arrive 15-20 minutes early for Initial Treatments, to allow for adequate time to complete initial paperwork.

  • Due to tighter scheduling, please arrive early. If you are late, we will do our best to accommodate you, but you may need to re-book for a later time/date. Thank you for understanding. 

  • Please silence your phone and refrain from speaking too much/too loudly during your session, so that we can maintain a peaceful healing space for all
