Helena Community Acupuncture
Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most common, and dependable medical therapies in the world. It is by nature simple, safe, and effective.
Acupuncturists use thin, sterile, one-time-use needles inserted superficially into specific areas of the body in order to stimulate the body's ability to heal itself.
Our experience tells us that acupuncture can reliably and safely decrease pain and inflammation, quiet spasms, boost immunity, dispel migraines, regulate hormones, cut recovery time from surgery, calm anxiety, lift depression, induce labor, restore mobility, improve digestion, and create a deep feeling of rest.
Acupuncture will normally cause people to feel sleepy during the time of treatment. In our treatment spaces, you'll find family, friends, and neighbors literally napping together as they work towards goals of better health, less pain, and relief from stress.
We treat in a community setting
Most acupuncturists in the US treat patients on tables in isolated rooms. This is not traditional in Asia, where acupuncture occurs in a community setting. Treatments are simple and repeated frequently for best results. At Helena Community Acupuncture, patients remain fully clothed in comfortable recliner chairs in our quiet, soothing community room. Treating patients in this way has many benefits beyond being more affordable. Many people find it comforting to have others around them rather than being isolated in a private room. The group treatment room creates a collective healing that enhances the power of each individual's treatment, and it allows friends and family to visit our clinic together.
About our sliding scale
We use a sliding scale to make acupuncture accessible to more people, regardless of income. Community Acupuncture Treatments cost $15 - $35. You decide how much you can afford to pay, no questions asked or income verification required. There is a one time $10 new patient paperwork fee for your first visit.
