Richfield Reviews by Daniel Randolph

When I went to Anodyne Acupuncture in Richfield, I had no idea what to expect. Almost all my preconceptions were wrong. I had a little trouble finding the door as it faces Bloomington Ave and not 66th, but once inside the office I found a very warm and peaceful reception area where Sarah greeted me. Sarah is the owner of Anodyne Acupuncture. Anodyne is part of POCA and practices “Community Acupuncture”. This means that the acupuncture is performed in a group setting, but don’t worry, it’s not weird or uncomfortable.

The Acupuncture Experience

Here’s how it works: You start by filling out a patient survey and then I was asked additional more specific questions. After that you go over and pay (cash, check, credit card and on a sliding scale of $15-40 per visit), then grab blankets/pillows whatever you need to be comfortable and take a seat. Then the needles are applied and you relax for 30-60 minutes.

Now, when I say needles, don’t think NEEDLES. These are tiny and of ~10 needles, I only felt two at all and it was not like I imagined. It was completely painless. I also thought it would be weird with all these needles, but it was not at all. When I first walked in, I thought the place was too warm, but I was wrong. I was extremely comfortable.

If you’ve been to a service like this, don’t laugh, but I did not know all you have to do is pull up your sleeves, take off your shoes and socks and roll up your pant legs (or show up in shorts and short sleeves).

Additional Notes About Anodyne

This was a new experience for me and I wholly recommend you give it a try. I slept great the night after my visit. You can call for an appointment or book right through the websites. You can also walk in but scheduling is best.
