Welcome LivingSocial and Groupon People!

Welcome LivingSocial and Groupon People!

Hey everyone, we’re really excited to have all you beautiful LivingSocial and Groupon people coming to our clinic! We ran one about a year ago, and had a few questions that kept coming up, so we figured this time around we’d put up a new FAQ just for you folks! If you’ve got a specific question that we haven’t answered here, please leave us a comment in the comments section below, or just shoot us an email and we’ll answer it in a hurry. You can also see our regular FAQ and New Patient page for more general questions.

The Groupon/LivingSocial deal says the acupuncture is done in a group treatment setting, does this mean I have to get undressed in front of strangers?

No, not at all. The style of acupuncture we practice uses acupuncture points that are mostly on the arms and legs below the elbow or knee, which allows us to treat problems anywhere on the body without putting needles directly in the affected area. We treat a whole lot of back pain here, for example, and it is extremely rare that anyone gets a needle in their back.

Your site says there’s a $10 new patient fee, does the voucher cover that?

Yes, buying the Groupon or LivingSocial voucher means you won’t pay a thing for as many acupuncture treatments as your voucher is good for.

Do I need an appointment?

Mostly yes. We gladly take walk-ins, but if you make an appointment you’re much less likely to have to wait to be seen. Scheduling online is a breeze, just click on the purple “Book Now” button on the right to get started. If need-be, you can certainly call, text (yes, we will respond to texts) or email, but if you’re reading this you’re already online, so give the online scheduling a try, won’t you?

Hey, I bought one package, can I split the treatments with a friend?

No, each package of 2 or 4 treatments can only be used by one person, but we do have some ways you could share some affordable acupuncture with a friend. If our deal is still live on Groupon: 1) Share it on Facebook! Your friends may want to buy their own and come on in with you! 2) Buy an extra few treatment packages as gifts for your friends. If our special is no longer live, you can still take advantage of our own in-house promo: 3) For the whole month of April, we’ll be doing a “bring a friend and their treatment is $10”. That will be unlimited for the whole month, so bring as many friends as you’d like as often as you’d like, and their treatment will only be $10 each time two or more of you come in together!

Hey, I know the deal page said I could buy one for me, and three as gifts for friends, but I want to use all four for me. That’s cool right?

No. If our regular $15-45 sliding scale is unaffordable for you, please talk to us, we may be willing to work something out on a case by case basis, but only one voucher per person please.

Acupressure for Cough

Acupressure for Cough

We’re asked every now and then about acupuncture for kids. We love working with kids, but often times kids respond so well to acupressure alone, that dragging them into the office just isn’t necessary! This article is for a parent who asked about acupressure points for cough, and we figured she probably wouldn’t be the last one to ask, and probably isn’t the only person in the world who wouldn’t mind some at home cough suggestions. So, that said, here’s a quick run-through

New Community Acupuncture of Fort Myers Flyers!

Our patients are awesome about spreading the word about Good Medicine Community Acupuncture in Fort Myers, and here’s a new way to do just that: new flyers!

If there’s a bulletin board, telephone pole, neighbor’s dog etc, near you that would look so much better telling people all about affordable acupuncture right here in Fort Myers, print up a few and spread the love! Or, grab a stack of ’em next time you’re in treating yourself to an acu-nap! Questions, suggestions, comments, etc always welcome in the comments below, or you can always hit us up on email at getpoked at fortmyerscommunityacupuncture.com . Thanks!

Smaller Needles Are Here! Same Gain, Less Pain!

Some of you have been waiting for us to get some smaller needles in, and this post is here to let you know you needn’t wait any longer. Ten boxes (that’s 10,000 needles!) of 40 gauge (0.16mm) arrived on Tuesday, and thus far it looks like it’ll be all we’re using for the time to come. Some people are more sensitive, and thus far the feedback from them has been great!

Carly’s Taking Some Time Off

Carly’s Taking Some Time Off

As some of you may have noticed, Carly is quite pregnant at the moment. She has been determined to work as long as possible, and the time has come for her to take it a little easier. It appears our new son is a bit more stubborn than her, and tends to object with vicious kidney punches and kicks to the liver when she is working too many hours. Well, it isn’t so much the hours as it is the constant sitting and standing that running our community acupuncture clinic requires. So, as of now Carly will just be working on Thursdays, and Dom will be picking up the Monday and Saturday shifts for the time being.
