Advanced Community Acupuncture - Wai Acupuncture & Integrative Chinese Medicine in Longwood, Florida

Advanced Community Acupuncture

Community Acupuncture is designed to lower the operating cost of an acupuncture clinic by having patients share a common space. The savings are passed to the patients through lowered cost of operation. The clinic is sustained by a large volume of patients.

Community acupuncture is suitable for generally healthy patients and new comers as an entry point. For new patients, a very brief interview is followed by insertion of needles. Existing patients may just start with needling. Since patients will be laying on recliners, needles location can be restrictive.  Patients will then rest for 30-45 minutes and the session will be complete. Due to the volume required to sustain the clinic, it will be difficult for the practitioner to give lots of attentions to a single patient. This model of operation is appropriate for tune-up, health maintenance, relaxation, minor pain, etc.

Research shows patients report that doctors spend little time discussing with them about their health issues. From our experience, community acupuncture patients benefit from discussion with us. This important discussion period involves many aspects of advice to improve health.

Many clients come with health issues other than those mentioned above for community acupuncture and desire to have those issues addressed. Acupuncture builds on cumulative effects and additional issues require more frequent treatments. However, many of them are unable to maintain the frequency due to many reasons. In order to tackle this situation, herbal formula is used in between acupuncture treatments. We notice better results from using herbal formula in conjunction with community acupuncture because it works in between acupuncture sessions.

Based on the above, we decided to upgrade our community acupuncture to Advanced Community Acupuncture. It will include Basic Herbal Consultation (herbal formula extra), Discussion (e.g. advice such as life style and diet adjustment) and Auricular Therapy. We strongly believe our clients receive excellent value from this new model.

For deeper, chronic or special health issues, our AcuMatrix is applied to rotate patients between Full Service, Semi Full Service and Advanced Community Acupuncture based on their clinical course. This allows our clients to maximize their health and minimize their cost.
