Come experience Community Acupuncture at Marine Mills Folk School! 

Community acupuncture is the practice of treating patients together in a large room. You will receive an individualized acupuncture treatment in a calm setting while creating a shared healing community. This is a perfect opportunity to experience the effects of acupuncture at a lower rate due to the group setting. 

Acupuncture is based on the 2,000-year old idea of qi (pronounced “chee”), often described as the vital energy that flows through the body along meridians – channels that connect organs and systems throughout the body. This ancient idea recognizes the interconnectedness of physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the smooth and balanced flow of qi is essential for maintaining health, and disruptions or blockages in this flow can lead to disease or discomfort. Modern day research shows us that acupuncture boosts endorphins, regulates hormones, enhances circulation, boosts the immune system, and releases your body’s natural painkillers. Acupuncture can help you with many ailments such as pain management, emotional health, autoimmune disorders, cancer care, digestive issues, and women’s health. 

Join Dawn Pivec, acupuncturist at Loon Holistic Health to experience first hand the awe inspiring effects of acupuncture. Community acupuncture involves relaxing with a group of other people getting acupuncture at the same time. Wear loose fitting and comfortable clothing to this session. 

Participants will choose appointment times beginning at 10 am and every 15 minutes after (for example, 10:15, 10:30, 10:45) until 1 pm.  Once you have signed up for Community Acupuncture on our website, you will receive a email or call from Marine Mills to determine the best time for your appointment.  You will also be sent forms to complete prior to your appointment.
