Acupuncture is an ancient art – a community art –
and at Common
Source Acupuncture, that underscores everything about our practice.    Whether you come to us with daily stress, athletic injuries, insomnia, or in need of treatment to supplement other medical modalities, Common Source Acupuncture can provide a calming and healing space, applying methods refined over thousands of years.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture uses extremely fine needles to smooth and facilitate the flow of the body’s natural energies or qi.  By inserting these needles in key points along the body’s energetic channels, qi is drawn to areas in need of support, thus focusing your own healing abilities.  So, an acupuncturist’s job is to remind your body of its innate ability to function optimally, not to act as a healer or miracle worker.  The amazing thing about acupuncture is that it simply allows your body to
do what it wants to do naturally.

What is community acupuncture?

Because we believe that acupuncture works best when people can comfortably receive treatments as often as necessary, the community model provides affordable acupuncture by treating several patients within the same hour.  One patient arrives and meets with the acupuncturist.  After needling, that patient rests while the treatment progresses.  In that time, other patients can meet with the acupuncturist and receive their own treatments nearby.  Seeing several patients in the same time period makes treatments more affordable and creates a healing group energy.  More information on community acupuncture can be found here.


Common Source Acupuncture provides affordable and effective acupuncture treatment in a comfortable group setting. Our sliding scale is always  $20 – $40.  You decide what you can afford.

The purpose of our sliding scale is to separate the issues of money and treatment; we want you to come in often enough to really get better and stay better!
