Community Acupuncture: Making Buckets from Ming Vases


Community acupuncture – as practised by self-styled ‘acupunks’ – is a radically different vision and philosophy for the practice of acupuncture in the West.

Spa settings and excessive Chinese medicine theory are unnecessary with such a model of treatment, as the needles do all the necessary work. This article describes the vision, aims and underlying philosophy of the community acupuncture movement.
