Community acupuncture simply means that treatments are not delivered in private treament rooms but in a quiet common area. Treatments are given in comfortable reclining chairs, with needles placed primarily below the elbows, knees and head. The group setting allows us to see multiple patients per hour while still giving you personalized care. This, in turn, makes it possible for us to keep our fees lower and make acupuncture available to a greater number of people.

Acupuncture is most effective with regular and more frequent treament. With the higher cost of one-on-one private treatment, it has become the norm in America to recieve acupuncture only once a week at best. This is usually not frequent enough for many conditions and prohibits most of us from experiencing the full potential of acupuncture's effectiveness. Our affordable sliding scale of $15 - $35 per person, per treatment allows you to come in regularly and frequently enough to feel results quicker and maintain better health.

Many patients find that receiving acupuncture in a group setting is preferable to private treatments. The group setting allows family and friends to come in together for treatment and there is a collective energy generated in the group treatment environment that enhances each treatment and benefits healing. There is also something very nice about relaxing amongst our peers especially given the fast paced, hectic world we live in today.

Our goal is to make high quality acupuncture accessible and affordable for anyone who desires to take advantage of its healing power.  
Here in United States, in the last twenty years, people have come a long way towards social and scientific acceptance of acupuncture.  Its popularity has grown primarily because of its effectiveness in addressing so many health and body issues.   People who have been able to realize the many health and relaxation benefits acupuncture provides have often been limited to those who could afford the treatments.  For the majority of us, the cost of the usual acupuncture treatment has been prohibitively expensive.  You may be one of those who have wanted to try acupuncture for your own health concerns, but have been hesitant because of the perceived cost.  That has now changed!

Looking for a way to make acupuncture more accessible to more people, the pioneers at Portland, Oregon’s Working Class Acupuncture created the “community acupuncture” treatment model.  In community acupuncture clinics, patients receive individualized treatments in a group setting while resting in a comfortable reclining chair.  This treatment model allows us to give effective, individual treatments while seeing multiple patients per hour, which brings down our costs.   The community acupuncture model created in Portland Oregon in 2002, has been received with great enthusiasm and support. This model has spread to over 200 US cities as well as internationally.   Established in the Spring of 2011, Tulsa’s Maplebrook Acupuncture now offers the healing power of acupuncture in the affordable and accessible community treatment model.

With rising healthcare costs and the general state of the economy, we believe that providing affordable acupuncture to everyone is more important than ever. The United States is experiencing a health care revolution in which acupuncture, made affordable, will play a crucial role.
