We provide high quality acupuncture treatment at affordable rates. We are able to do this because we run what is called a multibed clinic. This means that for all subsequent treatments we see patientsat 20 minute intervals and then allow you to relax with your needles in while we see the next patient. This allows us to pass the cost savings on to you the patient. While you are relaxing with your needles, each patient is given a bell with which you can call your acupuncturist at any time.
