***During the Covid pandemic the venue that I have used for the Affordable clinic has had to close sadly, therefore until a new Covid secure venue can be found the Affordable clinic is suspended. ***
I’ve decided I would like my Acupuncture practice to be available to all people that need treatment not just those that can afford it. Therefore to enable this I've started a 'multi bed' clinic: The affordable acupuncture project. ( www.acmac.net )
By treating more than one client at a time a practitioner can, as a result, reduce the cost of treatment as rent costs are reduced thereby passing the savings to the clients. Clients are treated in separate rooms and I move from one room to the other treating more than one client at a time. However, standards of treatment are the same as a full cost appointment. More of my costs are covered hence treatment is cheaper.
The number of treatments needed depends on the condition and response of the client. Consequently, treatments need to be frequent and long enough for the Acupuncture to give you the healing you seek.

The aim of the project is to make Acupuncture more accessible for all our community.
