Nevada County residents welcome a new downtown Grass Valley acupuncture business with a grand opening ceremony this weekend.
Grass Valley Community Acupuncture is celebrating a grand opening, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, with free treatments before 4 p.m. at its 133 Neal St. Grass Valley location.
Patients can expect a peaceful group setting while sitting in zero gravity chairs.
Acupuncture points on the head, abdomen and limbs are used to treat the entire body, permitting patients to remain clothed.
The group setting allows licensed acupuncturist and Grass Valley Community Acupuncture owner Renee Klorman to monitor multiple patients, which not only helps the treatment remain affordable, but also magnifies the healing energy and stimulates a sense of community, she said.
Initial intake appointments are conducted in a private room where patients are fully evaluated and a treatment plan is created.
In addition to acupuncture, a treatment plan might also include Chinese herbal prescriptions, dietary recommendations and exercises.
Acupuncture is recognized by the World Health Organization and the National Institute of Health for effectively treating nearly four dozen conditions, Klorman said, including seasonal and food allergies, side effects from chemotherapy and radiation, neck pain, back pain, sciatica, headaches, arthritis, stress, depression, anxiety, infertility and more.
Last year, 750,000 treatments were given in a community acupuncture setting, according to the annual survey conducted by the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture.
