What is different about Annapolis Community Acupuncture?
We are committed to making acupuncture affordable! Our sliding scale makes it possible for you to get the care you need,
as often as you need it! Because we offer a sliding scale, we cannot
bill insurance companies. This is the decision of the insurance
industry. If you have insurance, we will be happy to provide a receipt,
which you can submit for reimbursement. Annapolis Community Acupuncture
does not receive money from insurance, grants, state or federal
sources. We exist because patients pay for their treatment.
How can we provide high quality acupuncture at such affordable rates?
Acupuncture has been provided in groups for thousands of years. In a CA clinic, we don't spend a lot of time talking. We provide acupuncture treatments (designed specifically for you) in a small group setting, and a safe, soothing space for the treatments to do their job. We treat several people an hour. In addition, we do not spend a lot of money to advertise - we rely on
word of mouth referrals! These measures help us keep our costs
We treat in a community (group) setting! Acupuncture in a small group allows people to tap into the collective
healing energy naturally present when people are focused on their own
healing together. Annapolis Community
