Sheila Papa , MAc, Lac has joined Eastman Acupuncture in Allentown to add expanded availability for traditional acupuncture in a community style setting and making regular treatment more affordable in the process. Community style 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 owner Laura 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. In a five-year study conducted by Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 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.
