What is Community Acupuncture?
Most practitioners treat patients individually in a private room with hour-long sessions. These sessions typically cost $75-100 or more depending on the acupuncturist’s fee schedule. Community acupuncture treats patients in a group setting in reclining chairs. Treating patients in a community settings has many benefits: its easy for family and friends to come in for treatment together, many patients find it comforting; and a collective healing influence becomes established which can make individual treatments more powerful. By seeing patients in this setting, I can reduce the cost of each session making it much more affordable. This is the way all patients are treated in Asia.
The cost of a treatment in the Community Acupuncture Clinic is $35.00 with an additional one time $10.00 paperwork and consultation fee for the initial visit. Appointment times can be made in advance by scheduling with Sandra Walia at (860) 701-9929. Payment is made by check or cash (no credit cards).
Acupuncture is a system of healing that has been practiced in China and other Eastern countries for thousands of years. Although often described as a means of pain relief, it is in fact used to treat a wide range of illnesses. Its focus is on treating the overall well-being of the patient, rather than on isolated treatments of specific symptoms. According the Traditional Chinese Medicine, good health depends on the body’s vital energy (known as Qi or Chi) moving in a smooth and balanced way through channels beneath the skin (called meridians).
Sandra Walia Guillow, M.Ac., Lic.Ac. Dipl.Ac. (NCCAOM), has been involved in medicine and healing for over 30 years, working as a Medical Technologist and Emergency First Responder before obtaining her Masters in Acupuncture. She has degrees from New Hampshire Technical College, University of Connecticut and from the New England School of Acupuncture, graduating with high honors from all.
Her practice is eclectic, using Japanese and Chinese acupuncture, Cranio-sacral therapy, yoga therapy, chakra balancing, Tuina massage, and electro-stimulation and other modalities. She is a hands on practitioner and gathers much information from her palpatory skills. She is a mother, grandmother and lover and student of dance. Walia leads Dances of Universal Peace monthly with her husband, Shems.
