Community Acupuncture on Cape Cod
Information for New Patients
Our fees are on a sliding scale, from $25-$45, plus a $10 extra fee at the time of the first visit only.
You choose your payment within this range, based on what you feel you can afford.
When making this decision, please keep in mind that chronic health problems often require more acupuncture, in order to get the best possible results. We'd rather see you twice a week and have you pay $25 or $30 a visit than to have you come once a week and pay $45.
Our sliding scale rates are available to everyone, no income verification is required. We take payment at the time of your treatment, and do prefer cash or check.
We are a scent-free office, due to allergies. Please avoid wearing perfume or cologne.
If you are a new patient, please read the welcome letter below
After you've scheduled your new patient appointment, you will receive an email with your new patient intake forms. Please fill out and submit electronically before you arrive for your appointment.
Community Acupuncture is individualized acupuncture treatments at affordable rates in a community setting. Research in the United States (as well as thousands of years of tradition in Asia) has shown that acupuncture is most effective when done frequently and regularly - once a week is usually the minimum required to make progress, and twice weekly can increase the success rate significantly. The purpose of our sliding scale is to separate the issues of money and treatment; we want you to come in often enough to really get better and stay better!
