At Fredericton, Florenceville and Nackawic Community Acupuncture...
We offer affordable treatments on a sliding scale. The purpose of the sliding scale is to separate the issues of money and treatment. Everyone pays from
$20 - $40 , and you decide how much to pay for each treatment. The first visit is charged an additional $10 for the Initial Consultation fee. People sometimes ask us, "How much should I pay along the scale?" Our answer is, "How much you feel comfortable with paying."
We recommend regular frequent treatments. Acupuncture has a cumulative effect and is most effective when performed frequently. In China it is common to receive acupuncture treatments daily until the symptoms are alleviated. In Canada, where private acupuncture treatments typically cost from $80-$150 per treatment, only a wealthy few can afford regular treatment. Community acupuncture on a sliding scale allows you to come as frequently as needed.
We treat in a group setting. The community acupuncture model goes back to the roots of how acupuncture has been practiced in Asia for thousands of years - in a group setting. Patients lie fully clothed in comfortable recliners, in a quiet, soothing community room. Treating patients in a community setting has many benefits: it's easy for friends and family members to come for treatment together; many patients find it comforting; and a collective energetic field becomes established, which actually makes individual treatments more powerful. Group energy is inspiring, with group healing inspiring you to get better faster.
We believe in being part of the local community, striving to create a safe and comfortable environment for all members of our community. Every patient receives the same quality of care. We welcome people of all genders and gender identities, sexes, races, incomes, national origins, abilities or disabilities, marital status, family situations, religions, sizes, shapes and political beliefs. An affordable acupuncture clinic means that more people have the choice to use acupuncture and Chinese medicine for health care, ultimately creating a stronger and healthier community.
We provide affordable acupuncture and still make a living. Fredericton, Florenceville and Nackawic Community Acupuncture are not non-profit clinics. We don't receive government money, grants or private donations. We are a sustainable business model that offers a service people need and can afford. As long as we have enough patients paying along the sliding scale, we stay in business, providing valuable healthcare to the community.
