Laura Eastman is offering traditional acupuncture in a community style setting and making regular treatment more affordable in the process. The treatments are done simultaneously with multiple patients in a large room separated privacy screens for just $20. With a growing body of evidence indicating its effectiveness, acupuncture is going mainstream.
“In China, acupuncture is offered in a community setting, where private consultation and customized treatment is given in a relaxed, open atmosphere,” says Eastman. After a private, confidential consultation, patients relax to soothing music in a zero gravity chair and receive treatments to the head, arms, hands, legs and feet. Eastman treats patients for a range of symptoms including pain, fertility, menopause, anxiety, stress, digestive issues, insomnia and addictions.
A recent publication in The Archives of Internal Medicine, conducted by Dr. Andrew J. Vickers of Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, highlighted the results of a five-year study of pain management using acupuncture. His team examined data from over 18,000 patients suffering from chronic back, neck and shoulder pain, osteoarthritis and migraines. Acupuncture was shown to be more effective in relieving pain than either placebo or standard of care medicine.
