Traditional healthcare's uncertain future and rising costs open the door for viable affordable alternative care. Affordable Acupuncture Scottsdale answers the call.
(PRWEB) November 29, 2009 -- Affordable Acupuncture, LLC opened in Scottsdale in June of this year (2009) and has been met with enthusiasm and gratitude. Its increasing popularity and rapid success can be attributed to two things, need and cost. "As far as I’m concerned" explains Naomi Richman, Affordable Acupuncture's founder and president “this is the future of medicine.”
Nancy Green, a Phoenix resident, agrees. She says that Affordable Acupuncture has made a tremendous difference in her quality of life. “I have had stomach pain for years. I had been to doctors. They ran test after test and had no answers. Acupuncture took my pain away completely in less than a month. All told, I spent less than $200.”
Karen Frank has a similar story. “My sciatic pain was so bad that I couldn’t sit at my desk for more than 10 minutes without wanting to cry. Four acupuncture treatments later, I have no pain.” Frank had also been through the traditional Western medical route. “I spent thousands of dollars on co-pays and pills that didn’t really help. The doctors wanted to operate, so I looked for an alternative.” Frank explains. “I only wish I had tried [acupuncture first.” Frank's total $160.
Acupuncture has been rapidly gaining popularity in the United States over the past two decades. And although, preliminary studies show that this ancient healing art is much less expensive than traditional Western medical care (and pales in comparison to hospital care), it is infrequently covered by insurance and can add up if extended care is needed.
“The fact is, acupuncturists can see multiple patients per hour without sacrificing quality of care,” says Richman. “Once the needles are in, patients rest for 20-40 minutes on the table…alone…I don’t think it’s necessary to charge as much as most acupuncturists charge for the ten to fifteen minutes they spend with their patients.”
Richman created Affordable Acupuncture to allow a larger slice of the population access to acupuncture and Chinese medicine. And that population has been flocking in for care. Affordable Acupuncture has seen a 200% growth in business in the past three months. “There is a grave need for compassionate, effective, affordable healthcare in the US. We are simply doing our part to help,” explains Richman.
