The opening of an exciting,cutting-edge and one of a kind Acupuncture clinic in Stamford. Jody Eisemann's Affordable Acupuncture of CT introduces the phenomenon of group acupuncture treatments, widely and effectively used in China and around the world, to our local community and with it the means for people to actually afford this ancient, proven medicine.

Online PR News – 15-September-2010 – – Stamford - Affordable Acupuncture of CT opened its doors to the public for the first time this summer at Integrated Healthcare Associates, 992 High Ridge Road in Stamford. Founded by Jody Eisemann, Licensed Acupuncturist and former president of the Connecticut Society of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (CSAOM), the clinic is the first of its’ kind in Fairfield County to offer acupuncture at an affordable price. Eisemann says the key to making it affordable is treating patients all together in a group setting, as it’s done traditionally around the world, which allows many more people to take advantage of this highly effective and ancient healing art.
“It’s actually been a dream for a long time,” says Eisemann. “I am very interested in the community acupuncture movement, which aims to make acupuncture available and at an affordable price to anyone.”
At her new clinic Eisemann is able to treat up to 3-4 people at one sitting, providing each with a full acupuncture diagnosis and treatment. She is able to treat an additional 4 to 6 people with Acu-Balance Auricular (ear) Acupuncture, a simple yet powerful treatment for stress, depression and other mood disorders. Acu-Balance treatments do not require any diagnosis or intake interview as the same five points are always used.
With over 15 years of expertise successfully treating varied health conditions in her private practice in Fairfield, Eisemann has developed a special focus on quick and effective treatments for all types of pain. She notes that in China, in addition to treating specific medical conditions, most people visit the acupuncturist regularly to improve and maintain their overall well-being and as a preventative health measure.
Affordable Acupuncture of CT’s reasonable rates for acupuncture, both full treatment and just the ears, allow patients to come as often as they need to get well and stay well.
Through her clinic Eisemann hopes to reach out to anyone who has been told there is no solution, or they should learn to live with it, or assist those individuals who want an alternative to taking pharmaceuticals and/or surgery.
Acupuncture is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as an effective treatment for nearly four dozen conditions including acute and chronic conditions, stress and emotional disorders, women’s health issues (menopause, PMS, irregular menses, infertility, etc), digestive issues, post chemotherapy and radiation issues and sports injuries. Acupuncture can also provide remedial and preventative care for seasonal colds and allergies.
Eisemann explains that, unfortunately, many people have unfounded misconceptions about acupuncture, which prevent them from experiencing the medicine’s many proven benefits.
“Do the needles hurt?” she says. “Not really. The needles are like flexible cat whiskers and their ends are rounded and not sharp.” She adds that acupuncture needles are so fine you can fit almost 25 of them into one regular hypodermic needle. This is because the acupuncture needles are intended to stimulate, not to cut, as the hypodermic needles are designed to do.
