Wednesdays, Jan. 10 - Feb. 14 at 10:30AM B.J. Putnam, DAc, LOM, Dipl OM (NCCAOM) will offer six weekly GROUP ACUPUNCTURE sessions for BACK PAIN Wednesdays, Jan. 10 - Feb. 14, 2024 at 10:30AM. Group acupuncture allows people to reduce the typical expense of an acupuncture treatment while gaining support of others who are experiencing similar challenges. Participants will all be treated for back pain while seated by having points on their arms, legs, and head stimulated, thus eliminating the need for undressing. Our goal is to reduce the severity of back pain, increase mobility, and manage stress that occurs with chronic back pain. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend all six weeks to obtain the most beneficial outcome.
This is a trial offering. If there is enough interest, group acupuncture sessions will be offered in the future targeting other types of specialized pain. Fee: $20 per session. A generous portion of this fee will be donated to Generations. All fees payable by credit, cash or check to Generations. Registration is required and closes two days before each session. Stop by our front desk or call 215-723-5841.
