Sticking Together since 2017!

Community Acupuncture is the way acupuncture has been practiced in Asia for thousands of years. It is individualized acupuncture performed in a group setting where several people receive treatments at the same time.

Laura first brought Community Acupuncture to Salida at the Yoga Tonic. Her vision of the living- room sanctuary setting with recliners came to fruition in December of 2017 with the opening of Anupa Wellness.

At Anupa we have five comfortable recliners with pillows for lumbar support. We also have two treatment tables available if someone cannot sit in the chairs. We talk in low voices in the community room in order to respect privacy. We have Bose headphones if you would prefer to tune out. You are also welcome to bring your own earplugs.

Laura has been trained in many modalities i.e. Japanese style for Trauma and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries), NeuroAcupuncture is utilized for Concussions, Stroke, PTSD, Acute and Chronic Pain, Autism, Paralysis and Paresis, Parkinson’s, TBI ‘s and much more! Dr. Richard Tan’s style for endocrine and hormonal balance, emotional and behavioral health, acute and chronic pain, where needles are placed in many areas that you may not understand will help with your specific pain - but they do! She may also use auricular therapy or the NADA Protocol in the ear. All of these modalities are easily and effectively used in the community setting.

This collective healing environment is a relaxing and energizing experience for most people. No matter the primary issue, people who receive treatments regularly report better overall sleep, increased energy, mood improvements, less pain, and better health.

Acupuncture will normally cause people to feel sleepy during the time of treatment so in our treatment space you'll find family, friends, and neighbors literally napping together as they work towards common goals of better health, less pain, and relief from stress.

Our goal for providing the group setting acupuncture is to build community by delivering compassionate, affordable care in a comfortable place of rest and refuge. Laura believes wholeheartedly in the Acupuncturists Without Borders mission that by helping heal an individual’s trauma - we can heal a community.

We invite you to come and experience the healing benefits of acupuncture therapy as it was meant to be, in a calm and open environment.  We hope you enjoy the space as much as we do, and that Anupa Wellness becomes an ongoing part of your healthy lifestyle.
