    The Get Well Clinic in Camberwell offers "Community Acupuncture" or "multi-bed" treatment for Camberwell, Herne Hill, Dulwich, and Peckham every Tuesday at Zen Yoga in Camberwell Grove from 3:15-6:45pm. Last "admission" is 6pm - this is important to note especially for Drop-in ear acupuncture at the Get Well.

    What is acupuncture? It's the practice of inserting needles into points of chi concentration along energy channels known as 'meridians' in an effort to rebalance chi. What is chi? It is known as our life force.


    In the US, community acupuncture is seen as a "movement" and is already an established form of care for many people via the network POCA (People's Organization of Community Acupuncture, perhaps because of the astronomical cost of primary allopathic care there). But it has been slower to take off in the UK - possibly due to lack of a strong national network - even while multi-bed treatment dramatically reduces cost by pricing on a sliding scale. If you've ever booked one-to-one acupuncture, you already know how expensive it can get, especially in London due to high room rental costs.


    Community acupucture means numerous patients share the same space which lowers cost. This makes it possible for patients to afford more regular or frequent courses of treatment - often vital for those seeking to heal systemic ailments which can also limit earnings. Locally established practitioner George Monkhouse and Marion Rollings offer full body treatment from £20-40 (no questions asked but booking required) and just £5 for ear acupuncture on a drop-in basis. Ear (auricular) acupuncture is a technique similar to reflexology. Groups of pluripotent cells contain information for the whole body in a particularised region - in this case, mapped on the ear. These are needled.
