Pay what you can
LMCA's mission is to make acupuncture accessible to the community by offering treatments in a low-cost, high-volume, mutually supportive and inclusive environment. Acupuncture, for thousands of years, has happened in groups, not alone. In community acupuncture, we understand that acupuncture doesn't need to be expensive to work. And that healing in a community environment helps us feel that we are all in this together.
Acupuncture has been shown to be effective in:
We don't know exactly How acupuncture works but we Do know that it works. The W.H.O. lists 100 conditions that are successfully treated with acupuncture. To find out more about how acupuncture works check out https://www.evidencebasedacupuncture.org
In community acupuncture, you receive treatment in a reclining chair, in a calm and relaxing environment, with others receiving acupuncture in the same room. Each patient is given individualized care and then given time to relax. Often, people fall asleep and get some much needed rest and healing in a supportive space.
Because community acupuncture uses a shared space for treatments, rather than single massage-type treatment rooms, the price for acupuncture is much more affordable. Single room treatments may cost $85-$200+ per session, which prevents many of us from being able to receive as much acupuncture as we need to feel better. In contrast, Little Mountain Community Acupuncture is able to charge $25-$45 per session, on a sliding scale and you pay what you can, which allows you to receive acupuncture as often as you want and need. This is one of the mutually supportive benefits of community acupuncture.
For your first appointment, you will need to arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled time, to fill out Intake paperwork and check-in.
There is a $10 initial visit fee for new patients.
On return visits, you can check in and pay, then settle in when your chair is ready, and wait for the acupuncturist. Please feel free to let Andrea know if you have a wake-up time, so she can be ready to remove your pins, so you can be on your way.
Your comfort and the comfort of all patients is important to us.
The room is dimly lit, with an air purifier, and ambient music, to help you feel at ease and able to relax and unwind. There are also plenty of blankets, so you can stay cozy and warm while you rest and heal.
Andrea is a licensed acupuncturist in Buena Vista, Colorado. After 15 years of sharing her love of yoga with the community, Andrea made the decision to add to her work in wellness with community acupuncture.
Andrea attended POCA Tech, a Community Acupuncture school, in Portland, Oregon and is nationally board certified by the NCCAOM, as required for licensure by the State of Colorado, to practice acupuncture.
You may see her in a yoga class in Buena Vista.
And there is a very good chance you'll see her out on the trails, the slopes, or the water with her family, in the Arkansas Valley and Collegiate Peaks.
