NH public radio program 'Word Of Mouth' interview with Andy Wegman
The cost of healthcare is not going down. Employers are struggling to cover their workers, and families are doing what they can to keep their own medical costs under control. In an effort to find solutions, some are moving towards more holistic and preventative approaches to care, including treatments that are considered “alternative” to Western practice, like acupuncture. That’s not necessarily cheap either, though. Depending on where you live, you could pay between $75 to $200 for a one-on-one session with an acupuncturist.
That’s why some in the field are abandoning that one-on-one model, and instead are opting for the more affordable “community acupuncture.” Groups of people all sit in the same room together while a specialist treats them all, charging a modest, sliding price scale. It’s a trend that’s growing exponentially around the country, and the Manchester Acupuncture Studio in New Hampshire recently celebrated its one-year anniversary. Andy Wegman, its founder and lead acupuncturist, joins Word of Mouth in the studio.
