People come to the Brighton Community Acupuncture clinic as it serves the local and regional community by being affordable acupuncture with greatly reduced fees.

Over a number of years Amadis studied and researched a number of interrelated Chinese Medicine modalities to create an integral Chinese Medicine practice suited for people leading ordinary lives. Also for those in difficult situations whether social, financial, physiological or psychological.

During Amadis' 25 years running an acupuncture service within the NHS, audits were done by the South East London Primary Health Authority undertook every 5 years or so. The patient feedback forms consistently returned a +70% full satisfaction rate with the clinical results of 6-12 acupuncture sessions received over a period of 2 to 4 months by the patients he treated.

What is community acupuncture?

Brighton Community Acupuncture is an affordable community clinic. However it is not your typical multi-bed practice. It manages to provide relatively private treatment spaces where you can feel secure and cozy. A large hall is divided by a partition into two distinct spaces, in effect creating two rooms. In the bigger one is shared with one other person, who is several metres away and separated from you by a continuous screen, whilst in the smaller one you are on your own. Even though two or three people might be in the clinic at any one time, you are still given the opportunity to share what is going on for you as a person as well as about your medical condition. Thus the whole of you - body, energy, mind and spirit - is attended to and treated, not just your symptoms or clinical syndromes.
