Stroud Community Acupuncture
Cotswold Health Centre
8A George Street
The aim of Stroud Community Acupuncture is to make acupuncture affordable and accessible to all, no matter what their income, by treating people in a multi-bed environment. Traditionally in the UK, acupuncture is carried out by one practitioner treating one person at a time and charging anywhere from £40 to £60 per treatment. This can exclude people who can not afford this. At Stroud Community Acupuncture, more than one person can be treated at once. By treating several people together in the same communal space, treatment costs can be significantly reduced , while still being able to maintain the costs of running the clinic. The benefit of having treatment at Stroud Community Acupuncture is that people can afford as much acupuncture as they need to get well and stay well.

Acupuncture, like all medicine, often requires a course of treatment in order to be effective; one treatment often isn’t enough to create a lasting change to a person’s symptoms. If you only have a few treatments, or your treatments are too infrequent, the acupuncture may not build up the momentum to give you the healing you seek. Many people experience a significant change in their symptoms within ten treatments. However, conditions which are serious or chronic may be stubborn, and therefore need treatment over a longer period of
time. Often the main obstacle preventing people from committing to enough treatments to get themselves better, and stay better is money. Stroud Community Acupuncture offers treatments from £10 to £35 making acupuncture an affordable medicine.
