Community Acupuncture Is Easy and Affordable

The practice of community acupuncture is a grassroots movement intended to greatly increase access to acupuncture and widen its use in our increasingly complex health care system. In China, the community model is the traditional way of practicing acupuncture, so this helps to bring the community feel to the West.

At Hooked on Acupuncture in Galveston, owner Clint McCallum has embraced this model to provide easy and affordable access to regular acupuncture treatments. Acupuncture has an overall effect of reducing stress and boosting normal function, so things like sleep, digestion, energy level, and mental clarity all tend to improve with regular treatments. It’s a great form of preventative care. Most people fall asleep when they get acupuncture and awaken rejuvenated and refreshed.

Treatment starts with a private consultation to assess issues and develop a plan. The acupuncture sessions take place in the community room where the patient relaxes in a comfortable recliner. Payment on a sliding scale makes this accessible to almost everyone. Since Clint is also a certified heal th coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, he also includes nutritional counseling as part of his service.
