What is Community Acupuncture?
Community acupuncture has been a hit in many urban cities like Toronto and Vancouver for awhile now. It’s Traditional Chinese Medicine acupuncture done with an acupuncturist in the comfort of a group setting. This is a great way to help make complementary medicine more accessible in the community.
