Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AOM) is a healthcare system that is thousands of years old. It works to stimulate the body's natural ability to regenerate and repair damage, fight off invading illnesses, and suppress pain and inflammation. In conjunction with your regular healthcare, AOM can help you function better, move more smoothly and with less pain, succumb to illnesses less frequently and less intensely - all to improve your quality of life.
Friday Free Pain Clinic
First and Third Fridays, 9:15 am to 1 pm
September - May, barring holiday weekends.
One pain clinic per month June / July / Aug.
Group treatment, painful conditions only, demo treatments -not comprehensive care.
First and third Friday Pain Clinic is a bit different than private clinic - this is community style group treatment. We will have all three treatment rooms set up for treatment. You will have your choice of a flat table, recliner, or chair ( please do let us know in advance if you require the ADA compliant table so we can schedule you accordingly) with two to three people in each room. These are demo treatments focusing on one or two areas of pain, not comprehensive care ( I will not ask about bowel movements nor menstrual cycles).
This is a great opportunity to get 2 extra abbreviated treatments in per month at no extra cost to you. It's a wonderful option for the uninsured, under-insured, those who can't make it in other days of the week, those who just want to try it out to see if it works, those who want to watch a friend do it first . . . so spread the word to your curious friends, have them sign up, and bring them along.
You don't have to be in pain at the time, nor even a current client. Just sign up to check it out:
Sign ups are for a 10 minute appointment. Please be a few minutes early to fill out paperwork, or bring it in advance if you're a new patient. If you think you need extra time for special considerations, please call or email and we will be happy to schedule you more time.
Eat before coming.
Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing.
Turn off cell phones when here.
Let us know if you need the ADA table.
Please DO NOT:
Wear perfume or cologne.
Need support staff in your treatment room (space is limited - we can accommodate you in private clinic).
Treatment at Friday pain clinics is always 100% free. However, if you feel moved to give, there is always a donation box to collect funds for a local charity; suggested donation is 1 copay ($10-$30). Over the years, we have been able to give thousands of dollars to worthy causes in our community. We are our neighbors. Thank you.
Please call or email with any questions.
