Fort Wayne Community Acupuncture


**Update 2/22/21 -  Community Acupuncture services are being put on hold until COVID restrictions have eased and vaccination availability has opened to more age groups for those wanting to receive it.  Thank you for your understanding, we look forward to offering these group sessions again!


Sessions will be held on Wednesday afternoons at 3:30pm and 5:30pm. Sessions will be limited to 5 people at a time, chairs will be spaced six feet apart. Masks are required in the waiting room.  These are 30-minute acupuncture sessions in a relaxed, community environment for just $30.  Clients remain clothed during treatment and relax in reclined chairs. These sessions are an excellent, more affordable option for clients who need frequent treatment but don't necessarily need an extensive hour-long treatment in a private room. Community acupuncture is ideal for the following conditions:

  • Chemotherapy-induced nausea or fatigue
  • Morning sickness during pregnancy
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Carpal tunnel/Joint pain
  • Chronic sinusitis
  • Stress/Anxiety

**If you have neck/back pain, it's recommended you start with private individual sessions so we can access the affected areas and also do soft tissue therapy.  Call the main Fort Wayne office at 260-570-4515 to schedule, or visit the main website for pricing information.**


Wear loose-fitting clothing to your appointment.  No heavy perfumes or colognes.  No cell phone use in the treatment area.  Sessions are held at Oaktree Guidance & Wellness Center, located inside the Raymond James/Trine building (9910 Dupont Circle Drive East, Fort Wayne IN).

Our office accepts cash, check, credit or debit card.  HSA/FSA cards can also be used for payment.  Payment is taken at time of service.

We do not accept insurance. Detailed receipts/superbills can be provided if you would like to submit to your insurance company for possible out-of-network reimbursement.


What's the difference between private, individual acupuncture session versus community acupuncture?

Private, individual acupuncture sessions are done in a private treatment room and clients change into a gown or shorts as needed.  The treatment is more comprehensive and involves acupuncture on multiple areas of the body for a longer amount of time, and complementary modalities are used like electroacupuncture, guasha, cupping, and moist heat therapy.  These sessions are 60 minutes long.  This is recommended for clients with neck and back pain, upper back tension, migraines, or clients seeking fertility acupuncture. 

Community acupuncture is performed in a group room where multiple clients are treated at the same time.  Fewer needles are placed in more specific areas on the head, ears, arms, and below the knee.  Clients remain clothed as they relax in reclined chairs for about 30 minutes.  No modalities are used during these sessions. like heat, electroacupuncture or cupping.  These sessions are generally less expensive than private acupuncture.  Community acupuncture is a great option for clients who need acupuncture treatment more frequently, such as clients going through chemotherapy or radiation, those dealing with morning sickness during pregnancy, or clients who deal with anxiety/stress.

What's the difference between an L.Ac and someone who is certified in acupuncture?

A Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac) has a Master's degree specifically in acupuncture and completely understands the levels of sophistication of Chinese Medicine. A licensed acupuncturist must have a minimum of 2700 hours of masters-level training with at least 650 hours of clinical training and a minimum of 250 patient treatments before graduation. We are required to pass the national certification examination in acupuncture and we must complete regular continuing education to maintain national certification.

Certain healthcare professionals in Indiana can become a Certified Acupuncturist with 200 hours of training. They have minimal clinical experience in acupuncture and often no actual patient treatments before certification. They are not required to complete the NCCAOM exam to prove competency in acupuncture, and they are not required to complete continuing education classes.
