Mason Stabler, L.Ac. also recently moved to the Upper Valley after a 4-month stint in Nepal where he ran a rural health clinic treating 20-40 patients each day using a community acupuncture model. Drawing on his experience in Nepal, and from his experience in Chicago community clinics, Mason will direct Open Door’s group acupuncture clinic. A board-certified acupuncturist and herbalist, Mason will soon receive his Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
Midday on Thursdays, starting at the end of June, patients will be able to receive acupuncture at Open Door in the comfort of zero-gravity chairs for just $30. The motivation for the community clinic setting is to provide affordable and accessible treatments to a wider socioeconomic demographic, as we believe everyone should have the opportunity to benefit from the healing power of acupuncture and herbal medicine. This setting also allows patients to heal alongside fellow community members in a safe and comfortable environment. Acupuncture can address a wide variety of health concerns, and this style is particularly suited for chronic pain conditions, anxiety, and addiction where more frequent treatment confers enduring results.
If you’d like to learn more about community acupuncture, our colleagues have put together a wonderful video on what to expect from a treatment, and have kindly shared it with our community here in the upper valley. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3a07LaVmYLc
