$15-$45 Sliding Scale, Pay What’s Comfortable!

Yep, you read that right! Acupuncture is most effective when received regularly, and it is our mission to make sure that anyone can afford the kind of frequent treatment that will get them real, lasting results. At the traditional $65-$125(yikes!) per visit charged at many acupuncture practices, even weekly treatment can get unaffordable fast! We charge a sliding scale of $15-$45 per treatment, and don’t bother with any income verification. You choose what you pay! Yes, it works out for us. Really. Still confused? Check out this article.

Please note that there is a one-time additional fee of $10 for your first visit. Thanks for helping us make acupuncture in Fort Myers affordable!

What’s Different about Community Acupuncture?

What’s Different about Community Acupuncture?

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, with simple treatments repeated frequently for best results. At Good Medicine Community Acupuncture, 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, in the same way that a restaurant with great food isn’t quite the same if you’re the only person in it. Treatments in a group setting also promote a collective healing environment, yielding quicker, longer-lasting results than would be possible otherwise.

What Can Acupuncture Help With?

Posted by on Mar 1, 2012 in acupuncture, Featured, Portfolio | 10 comments

What Can Acupuncture Help With?

While most people know acupuncture is great for pain relief, we are frequently asked “Can Acupuncture help with: ____? ” The answer is more often than not a resounding “Yes!” From stress relief to morning sickness, tiny painless needles can make a huge difference!

For starters, pain relief is an extraordinarily large category, including conditions from migraines to sciatica to fibromyalgia. Chances are, if you are in pain, we can help.

Women’s health is another large category, chalk-full of conditions that make women’s lives difficult, most of which we can help with. Painful periods or PMS? Yep, we can help! Hot flashes driving you nuts? Give us a call!

Besides making daily life difficult, stress can be a huge detriment to ones health. High stress can put you at increased risk of a number of health problems, including: heart disease, sleep problems, digestive problems, depression, obesity, memory impairment and others. Any guesses as to a safe, effective way of relieving stress? If you guessed acupuncture, you’re catching on!

The World Health Organization has a fairly extensive list of conditions (available here) they believe acupuncture to have proven effective in treating. If you’re not sure if we can help you, please just ask.

New Patient?

New Patient?

Are you new to our clinic and wondering how everything works around here? Well, look no further, because this post will fill you in on everything you need to know.

For your first visit please look over our New Patient Packet. It contains our Welcome Letter with information on what to expect at your first appointment, and our Health History and Registration form. If you like, you can complete your paperwork and bring it with you to your first appointment, or you can just arrive about 10 minutes early for your first visit and fill out your paperwork at the clinic.

Please note that there is a one-time additional $10 fee on the first visit.

 

Scheduling an appointment:

The quickest and easiest way to get an appointment is to schedule online. The service is easy to use and frees up time for us to give more acupuncture treatments. If you’d prefer to call that is fine, but please make sure you leave a message. We do our best to answer the phone every time, but when we’re busy sometimes it just doesn’t happen.

 

Invisible Receptionist:

Yes, our receptionist is invisible, and by that we mean we do not have a receptionist. Instead, we use a system of envelopes to handle the things a paid staff member would normally handle, namely collecting payment and scheduling appointments. For more detail on how the system works, please see our New Patient Packet

 

On the day of your first appointment…

  • We realize your time is valuable.  Therefore, we ask that you make every effort to arrive on time for your first appointment.  If you are more than 20 minutes late for your first appointment, we may need to reschedule it.
  • Please do not wear any perfume, cologne or scented lotions. Many of our patients are sensitive to smells.
  • Plan to be at the clinic for about 90 minutes. Follow up treatments may not take as long.
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing with sleeves that can be rolled up to the elbows and pants that can be rolled up to the knees.
  • The treatment room has soft, soothing music playing, but you may bring earplugs or headphones if you prefer. If you bring your own music, please choose relaxing music or guided meditation to listen to.
  • Please eat a little something beforehand. Acupuncture is not recommended on an empty stomach.
  • Don’t plan to engage in any strenuous activity after receiving acupuncture. Gentle exercise, such as tai chi, gentle yoga or walking, is best.

 

How to find us:

We are located across US-41 from Barnes and Noble, in the same building as the Red Cross. We’re right at the top of the stairs, so if you take the elevator just turn right and we’re just on the end in unit 206. For directions, just plug your address into the map below. Thanks, and we can’t wait to meet you!
