Some things about community clinic

People are treated in the same room.

There is no disrobing, so wear loose comfortable clothes.

The collective energy of being treated in a group enhances your treatment.

Families and friends can come together.

Treatments are typically 15-20 minutes long; or let us know if there is a specific time you need to be up by.

Our Treatments

We use distal points on the arms and legs to treat most everything.  We don’t have to stick needles where the problem is to get results.  Really!

Free Acupuncture mean that people can actually experience the benefits of acupuncture and return anytime for additional free treatments, as long as the clinic is still active.

Shannon Freeman, LAC, EAMP is a nationally licensed acupuncturists, using sterile disposable needles.

Our Mission

A Better Way Massage & Acupuncture MISSION is to help as many people as possible in their quest for optimum health and educate them about the benefits of acupuncture and massage therapy so they may, in turn, educate others.  Our clinic is peaceful and friendly place that welcomes all people.  We strive to empower our patients, employees, and interns with a healthcare model that requires responsibility, participation, and community building.

WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU:

Responsibility

Shannon Freeman, LAC, EAMP, LMP is a licensed acupuncturists and does not provide primary care or diagnose medical conditions, though she often provides complimentary care for conditions that require a physician’s attention. If you have a serious medical condition, for example, an infection, growth or injury that won’t heal, you need to see a primary care doctor (MD, DO, ND.)

When you go back for treatment get yourself ready by choosing a chair, removing shoes and socks, pushing up your sleeves and pants and settling in before the acupuncturist arrives.

Feel free to bring ear plugs, ear phones, or anything that will help you to be comfortable in our treatment rooms.

Community Mindedness

We all create our quiet peaceful setting by speaking softly, and not too much.

Please turn off your cell phones.

Strong scents, perfumes, aftershave, body care/hair products, and detergents trigger allergic reactions and headaches for other.  Please try to minimize the use of these before you come to the clinic.

Wear shoes in the clinic.

Commitment

Acupuncture is a PROCESS. It is very rare for any acupuncturist to be able to resolve a problem with one treatment. In China, a typical treatment protocol for a chronic condition could be acupuncture every other day for three months! Most of our patients don’t need that much acupuncture, but virtually every patient requires a course of treatment, rather than a single treatment, in order to get what they want from acupuncture.  As long as our Free Acupuncture Clinic is open, you are welcome to come as many times as you wish.
