I have been treating at the Community Acupuncture Clinic at Chicago Healing Center two days a week, since it opened in May 2017.
Community acupuncture boasts three main benefits: (ONE) multiple people can be treated at the same time, at a (TWO) reduced price point. Additionally, since an appointment is not required (although it is available) it allows you to (THREE) just show up during during the open hours and get a treatment.
When would you need a treatment right now?
Here are some examples:
- The moment you feel a cold coming on – that little scratch in your throat.
- You woke up with a stiff neck.
- Your emotional stressors in your life started, or got worse.
That last reason – relaxation – is really valuable. There are times I just need to relax, to unwind, to unplug. Acupuncture is a fantastic way to do that.
A few weeks ago, on a Sunday, I was walking around Rogers Park. I had some things on my mind, but there was nothing particularly “wrong” with me, emotionally, physically, or spiritually. Yet, as I strolled along, I pasted another community acupuncture clinic run by a couple of people I know.
I stopped dead in my tracks, considered it for three seconds, and went in to receive a treatment for myself. It was just what I needed, because I walked out more chilled, more happy, and the things on my mind more rightsized and manageable.
[BTW, yes…I do get acupuncture treatments, and find it weird when acupuncturists don’t – more on this another blog post.]
All clinics are run a bit different, so do your research. It might be a good fit for you.
And, consider booking or stopping by the clinic when I’m there, especially if something just came up for you.
