No one should be denied access to quality health care because of their lack of income or mobility.
Modern health care delivery focuses on the ability of the patient to travel to a provider for treatment. For seniors, homebound individuals, and people living in rural or native communities this can create a barrier that is difficult or impossible to overcome.
Additionally, insurance coverage for alternative and integrative health care services may not be available to help defray the cost of care. Even for those with coverage, co-pays, deductibles, and other out-of-pocket costs can put integrative services out of reach for many people. This is especially true for seniors living on fixed incomes or those surviving on low-wage jobs.
Free Range Health removes these obstacles by delivering low-cost services to where they are most needed.
According to the US Administration on Aging, there are nearly 40 million Americans over the age of 65. Almost 4 million of them are unable to leave their homes due to serious physical and mental illness. Free Range Health is working to improve the quality of life for these individuals. Your donation brings them the superior integrative health services they deserve.
Lack of convenient transportation and long distances from providers can have a negative impact on underserved individuals seeking quality health care. Free Range Health removes these barriers. Your donation delivers our services to where it is most convenient for the patient.
Innovative new approaches to health care delivery are essential to meet the needs of our aging population. Free Range Health is committed to being part of the solution. Our decentralized model of health care delivery is bridging the gap between patients and providers. Your donation increases access to integrative medicine and helps individuals and communities live healthier and happier lives.
You don’t have to be senior age to enjoy the benefits of Free Range Health at the senior center. Free Range Health is a very affordable and pleasant community acupuncture. My weekly sessions keep my aches and pains at bay without breaking the bank.
Cole and Kristan with Free Range Health are both very nice and knowledgeable acupuncturists. They get to know their clients and their acupuncture needs.
I appreciate and respect Cole’s and Kristan’s clinical skills that they use in acupuncture treatment. I am equally appreciative of their supportive reactions with the clinic patients. They are able to maintain a warm, professional approach to all of us.
When therapy with bands did not bring me relief, I went to an acupuncture clinic in Seattle to see if they could help my strained rotator cuff. Two treatments later I had no more pain – and that was 20 years ago. So when I found out about Free Range Health, I went to see if they could help me with my drug-related neuropathy in my feet as well as with my peripheral artery disease in my calves. While it’s not eliminated either entirely, my legs and feet feel 80% better after treatment.
I am so thankful that a clinic the caliber of Free Range Health exists. The staff are fantastic, and the price is right!
These treatments have been such a help for my arthritis. I didn’t think acupuncture would help me as much as it has – treatments do not hurt! I come every Friday when I can and thank Cole for helping me to be pain free, especially in my neck where I have the most pain. I am a believer in acupuncture! Try it and you will be amazed at how much better you will feel!
I was having trouble with my back after a fall. Before after a fall, maybe a week and I was fine. Not this time. I had heard of acupuncture, but I have limited resources. Cole and the non-profit fit.
What a change! My back is doing well, and I don’t have the stress of financial troubles. Cole does fine work and has made my back and body work without the pain.
Thank You, Cole.
Great results in little time. Love!
Having an affordable acupuncture treatment means as I age my movement will be better. I have more pain free movement with the treatments. The people giving the treatments are interested in helping and in the results patients are getting. We, as seniors, benefit greatly from this physically and mentally here at the Senior Center
Thank you for supporting us with affordable health care.
Now I can walk without pain.
I can’t say enough about how wonderful Free Range Health is. I first came because of a wrist tendonitis that was keeping me from my beloved knitting and crocheting. I now am pain free and enjoy my hobby again. I continued with regular treatments for immune enhancement because I trusted the information Cole was sharing about acupuncture’s benefits. Later when I had a shingles attack, acupuncture helped immensely with reducing (and finally eliminating) the pain I was experiencing.
I firmly believe acupuncture has helped me stay healthy and active, and Free Range Health is so affordable.
I would recommend highly Free Range Health. I have been receiving care weekly for over a year and continually see improvements for my aches and pains. I am an avid Zumba fan so foresee that Dr. Cole and Free Range Health will be finding me on their doorstep to continually keep me in good health.
I’ve been going for treatment for my back, working very well. Everyone is so kind and patient. Will continue to go if I have any other problems. I hate needles, but these don’t hurt!
