So a patient walks into a community acupuncture clinic...

...and they are the only one there. "Oh, I've come at a good time," they say.

Well, actually, no.

This is something that's come up here and there over the years, and a couple of times recently...and something that certainly merits addressing.

The bottom line is this: If you are pleased because you've got the community acupuncture clinic to yourself, you are sadly missing the point. Community acupuncture is truly a people powered endeavor, requiring community support and high volumes of patients to be viable. It is not simply about charging less for treatments. Far from it...

So, if you come in, and it's slow...please, do what you can to change that. Tell the world.

We're going to be 5 at the end of this year. I'd like to still be around in another five years.
