Most US acupuncturists treat patients on tables in individual cubicles. This is not traditional in Asia, where acupuncture usually occurs in a community setting. In our clinic we primarily use recliners, clustered in groups in a larger, quiet, soothing space. Treating patients in a community setting has many benefits. It is easier for friends and family members to come in for treatment together. Many patients find it comforting to rest silently with others rather than be alone. A collective energetic field becomes established which actually makes individual treatments more powerful.
