Acupuncture + Singalongs

******The clinic will be closed March 16 – April 30 in response to the COVID-19 outbreak in an attempt to help flatten the curve. We hope to re-open May 1, but will update this message if that changes based on public health recommendations.******

Receive acupuncture in a group setting while singing along to music, $15-$50 sliding scale. Singalongs are available only to existing patients. If you want to sign up for a singalong session but have never been to the clinic before, you’ll need to come in for a regular appointment first.

Coming Soon: Private Singalongs

Wish you could choose your own music and come with just your friends? In 2020 we’ll start booking private group singalongs. If you’re interested, use our contact form to get in touch.

Why Sing?

Singing opens up the lungs, stretches the diaphragm, moves qi, boosts your immune system, improves sleep, releases endorphins, increases oxygen flow to your brain, tones the vagus nerve to reduce the effects of trauma, and lowers anxiety and stress. The vibration of your singing will stimulate the needles and increase the communciation happening in your connective tissue and nervous system. 

 

What to Expect

  • Each session is based on a specific album or playlist, so the length will vary from around 40 to 60 minutes. Double albums will be broken into two sessions.
  • Make sure you know the words so you can sing along the whole time. Try to listen to the album/playlist at least once before you come to make sure you recognize all the songs. If any are unfamiliar, feel free to bring lyrics with you. 
  • Arrive a few minutes before the start time to pay for your treatment and get settled in your recliner.
  • There will be no intake questions. Everyone will get the same acupuncture treatment focused on moving lung qi and calming the nervous system. Nasal points to open the sinuses are optional. 
  • The album/playlist will play loudly over the clinic speaker.
  • Sing your heart out!
  • When the playlist is almost over, the needles will be removed. 

It’s okay for your voice to crack, to sing the background music if you forget a few words, to try a harmony or two, or to go a little off-key. Because everyone is singing to the ceiling, you’ll be able to hear that other people are singing, but you’ll mostly hear the speaker, just like singing along in your car. No one is listening to you, and the stakes could not be lower!

(But you do need to sing — no spectators!)
