We the People Community Acupuncture Brings An Ancient Medical Therapy To The People Of Santa Fe, New Mexico

By Paul Rowe

Acupuncture treatment is founded on the notion that there is a system of energy pathways flowing through every human body. When a person's pathways are running like clockwork, that individual will experience perfect health and wellness. At times, one may experience a blockage or imbalance in energy flow caused by any number of emotional or physical disturbances. When this occurs, an acupuncturist is required to repair these energy pathways.

Boasting a rich history dating back 2,000 years, acupuncture is recognized by the World Health Organization as a viable treatment option for a diverse range of health conditions from allergies to headaches. Acupuncture offers a unique approach to healing in that its treatments are tailored to the individual's specific level of imbalance so that healing can occur at subjective levels of the mind, body, and spirit. Practitioners of acupuncture strongly believe that the mind, body, and spirit are inherently connected, and acupuncture is believed to harmonize and heal all three of these life elements.

Oftentimes, the challenges life hurls at the average person on a daily basis are difficult to treat, let alone pinpoint their specific causes. Many ailments that are difficult for doctors to treat, such as anxiety, stem from the stressors of our lives. Thankfully, acupuncture can effectively treat anxiety, depression, panic, and other complicated conditions that are tricky to alleviate.

Sante Fe's We The People Community Acupuncture provides affordable, specialized, and individualized acupuncture treatments in a calming setting. Patients are asked to decide what they can afford to pay on a sliding scale ($15-40). Since treatments are so affordable here, patients can receive care frequently and regularly. In fact, acupuncture is most effective when administered with this kind of regularity.

"We want you to come often enough to get better and stay better," owner Katy Whitcomb said. "We are part of a growing movement of over 200 community clinics around the country that are returning to this tradition of community practice: both patients and practitioners love it!"

At We The People, acupuncture is safe, simple, and efficient. The center's highly trained acupuncture practitioners superficially insert thin, sterile, disposable needles into the body's specific areas of discomfort to rejuvenate the body's ability to heal itself. These needles are customarily left in the body for at least 30-40 minutes, with astonishing results. Oftentimes, patients are eased out of their fight or flight responses and focused onto the rest and recuperate phase of physical rejuvenation.

The American public is largely uninformed about the benefits of acupuncture. Thanks to community centers like We The People Community Acupuncture, this perception may be changing. We The People is determined to impart its transformative wisdom with the people of Santa Fe for years to come.
