Free Range Health bridges the gap between affordable acupuncture services and convenient locations by offering low-cost community acupuncture clinics at locations where seniors are already congregating.
Senior and community centers are an important part of the social network of aging adults. The many interactions and opportunities for social engagement that are available there contribute to the overall health and well being of these important members of our society. The members of these centers often have limited choices when it comes to transportation to and from health care providers. They must rely on generous family members, neighbors, or public transportation to complete their normal activities outside the home.
By partnering with locations to add our services as an additional layer to their existing programs, we build on the system our seniors already have in place. There is no need for them to make additional arrangements to get to and from our clinics.
Acupuncture is an effective treatment for most medical conditions. It can be used as a stand-alone treatment for your medical condition, or it can be used as a supplement to your current Western medicine treatment plan. In East Asian medicine it is understood that all of the different parts of your body are connected to each other by rivers of energy that flow between the skin and the organs. By inserting very small needles into specific points on the body, a skilled acupuncturist can manipulate this energy flow to increase health and promote wellbeing.
When used properly, acupuncture can provide relief from a wide range of conditions including acute and chronic pain, migraines, sleep disturbances and insomnia, stress, and digestion problems to name just a few.
