Acupuncture

Appointments are available from 9 am to 3 pm on Tuesdays at our Fitchburg Community Health Center.

Many health insurance companies now cover acupuncture services for treating pain and substance use disorders. A physician referral may be needed.

Self-pay fees are $60.00 for the initial visit and $45.00 for each following visit.

You may make appointments through the medical department.

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine technique for treating pain. It is a complementary therapy best used in conjunction with, and not in place of, other medical care.

The acupuncture practitioner inserts very thin, sterile needles at specific points along the body. There are different theories about how it works. Traditional Chinese medicine views acupuncture as a way to balance the body’s energy. Western practitioners believe it stimulates the body’s natural pain killers.

Acupuncture practitioners are specially trained and licensed. The needles are medical devices regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.
