Community Acupuncture

June 22, 29, July 6,13, 20, 27

Thursdays, 1 pm - 6 pm

Octopus Garden Yoga

967 College Street


Join us for six weeks of community acupuncture at Octopus Garden Yoga. This is a great way to improve health issues that are acute and need attention. It’s also a good length of time to work on life goals, and to change habits. This is also the first acupuncture circle we have done since the pandemic. Let the circles begin!


These personalized Acupuncture treatments take place in a group setting. Treatments take place in a recliner or if you prefer on a yoga mat with bolsters.


Acupuncture is one of the most widely used therapies in the world.

It’s a powerful too to promote health and generate more self- awareness.

It’s a safe and effective treatment for many illnesses.

In Chinese Medicine health is seen as having the right balance of life force called Qi.

Ideally, Qi flows smoothly and evenly throughout the body nourishing each cell, organ and tissue. Acupuncture involves inserting fine needles into key points on the body along energy pathways to move, restore, and balance Qi.


Acupuncture is often used to:

  • Improve and manage chronic nerve and muscle pain

  • Regulate digestion and metabolism

  • Relieve stress, anxiety, and depression

  • Improve reproductive health

  • Boost immunity and energy level

  • Manage the side effects of drugs and medications


For over 20 years, I have helped folks with all sorts of health issues from common to unusual. I often work with these conditions and experiences in my clinic:

  • body pain, soreness, tightness, and injuries

  • digestive problems

  • stress, anxiety, and depression

  • reproductive and gynecological health

  • menopause, pre and post and ongoing

  • boosting immunity, colds and flus, sinus issues, allergies and strengthening immunity

  • boosting energy levels

  • managing side effects of drugs and medication

  • concussions, head injuries, headaches, migraines

  • concentration, focus, and mental clarity

  • pelvic and spinal alignment disorders

I have learned much in the way of how trauma and stress are expressed through physical, emotional and spiritual pain. I believe acupuncture to be an effective treatment for healing by restoring balance to emotions, organs and vital energy. Acupuncture treatment can deal with and lessen these states and experiences:

  • Dealing with feelings of grief and loss

  • Feeling stuck and inflexible

  • Feeling overwhelmed by thoughts and emotions

  • Feeling fiery and reactive, full of rage and vengeful

  • Feeling distant, slow, weighed down physically, mentally-emotionally

  • Feeling surges of irritation, anger and rage

  • Feeling light and insignificant - "I don't know how I feel or how I am"

  • Feeling fearful and untrusting

Sliding Scale Fee of $60 - $80

A sliding scale makes acupuncture treatment more accessible to more people.

Acupuncture works best with frequency and regularity. Please join us for these six weeks of acupuncture. This is great way to work on health issues that are acute and need attention. It’s also a good period of time for you to work on your life goals, and to change habits.
