We aim to make acupuncture accessible and affordable to a wide range of people, by providing effective, low-cost treatments in a community setting.
Community acupuncture is an effective and affordable way to benefit from acupuncture. Our community clinic aims to make acupuncture more accessible and will run on a ‘sliding scale’ in order to make treatments more affordable.
High standards will be maintained throughout the clinic by all practitioners, in keeping with the British Acupuncture Council’s ‘Code of Safe Practice for Acupuncture’ which includes guidelines on workplace, equipment, duty of care, safe disposal of clinical waste and health and safety. All our practitioners are members of the British Acupuncture Council or the Acupuncture Society, which regulates traditional acupuncture standards in the UK.
Community and multi-bed acupuncture is a tried and tested model for running a clinic, based on copying the multi-bed acupuncture treatment model used across hospitals in China, and has been extremely successful across the United States, and more recently in the United Kingdom.
Both Andrew and Ian previously worked together in a very successful community clinic in London called Bright Room Community Acupuncture based in Stoke Newington, London. Andrew, was a co-founder of Bright Room, and worked there from the very first days of operation in 2013. Andrew continues to be involved in the management of Bright Room clinic, regularly working as an acupuncturist and herbalist. Ian worked at Bright Room for 5 years beginning in 2015. Together, we have around 13 years of experience working in community multi-bed acupuncture clinics, as well as our own experience in private practice.
