How We Treat

We treat in a community setting
Most acupuncturists in the U.S. treat patients on tables in isolated rooms. This is not traditional in Asia, where acupuncture usually occurs in a community setting. Treatments are simple and repeated frequently for best results. At Berkeley Acupuncture Project, patients remain fully clothed in comfortable recliners in our quiet, soothing community room. Treating patients this way has many benefits beyond being more affordable. Many people find it comforting to have others around them rather than being isolated in a private room. The group treatment room creates a collective healing energy that enhances the power of each individual’s treatment, and it allows families and friends to visit our clinic together.

Our Sliding Scale
Berkeley Acupuncture Project is part of a growing movement of clinics in the U.S. based on a vision of making acupuncture part of the solution to our current healthcare crisis. Our fees are often less than an insurance co-pay, if you are lucky enough to have insurance that covers acupuncture — if you are lucky enough to have insurance at all.
