El Cerrito, California (EastBayDaily) — The rising price of health care doesn't have to keep people from receiving the benefits of acupuncture and ancient Chinese medicine.
With the community acupuncture model now offered by Getting the Point Acupuncture in El Cerrito, Calif., patients are provided an affordable way to maximize their health care benefits without having to depend on insurance companies. Getting the Point Acupuncture offers community acupuncture seven days a week that allows practitioners to treat several patients at a time, and lowers the cost significantly because price is based on a sliding scale. Acupuncture can be costly for patients as it is not typically covered by insurance. That’s why community acupuncture is becoming more popular. Over 750,000 community acupuncture treatments were administered in the US in 2012.
Acupuncture is a therapeutic process used in China for over 2,000 years that restores the body's natural flow of vital energy through the insertion of tiny, sterilized, single use needles into specific points. The benefits of acupuncture are maximized when treatments are administered on a regular basis. Acupuncture also promotes health and well-being within the community.
