    Comment:  Review: I bought a community pack and went regularly during my first and third trimesters. I had miscarriage issues and I'll never know if acupuncture helped me retain my successful pregnancy, but I can say that those early visits helped keep me calm and relaxed, in addition to clearly helping with morning sickness. In the third trimester, my visits focused on comfort and I noticed a big difference in my overall aches after a visit.Insurance: I believe they take insurance but I didn't try to go through my insurer for the community sessions.Based on a January 2015 birth

    Subject:  Shout out - Slope Wellness
    Comment:  I wanted to give a shout out to Slope Wellness. Recently, someone from the list serve asked about acupuncture and sliding scales. Slope Wellness offers community acupuncture on certain days which is very reasonable. Yes, you share a room with two others, but I think the cost savings outweigh the private acupuncture. If you get a packet of 5 acupuncture sessions, there are additional savings.I like Slope Wellness because they don't try to push any treatment, and is a local business, so I like to support local business. They are low key, very professional, and reliable. I have had community acupuncture with Trisha, and she is great. She took care of real pain points in several sessions. I have also had massages, and I want to say Julia is awesome. She asked what my issues were and she really concentrated on my problem areas.I have had massages at other places, and Slope Wellness is the best.I have no affiliation with Slope Wellness, but just a happy customer who stumbled upon this place a while ago.

    Subject:  NEW! Slope Wellness Center on 8th Ave (8th/9th Sts.)
    Comment:  I have to give a shout-out for a new holistic health care center in the neighborhood--Slope Wellness--run by Jeff Weidmann, a wonderful acupuncturist and Brooklyn dad.Some of you may be familiar with Jeff as a founder and former owner of Element Healing Arts in Carroll Gardens, while some may know him from his independent practice. He's a Brooklyn native with a really sensible approach and incredible store of knowledge from his previous training in China and New Mexico. I have no affiliation with his business but have known him for many years, since he first treated me for a stomach issue that resolved quickly. I am terrified of needles but have no problem with his acupuncture because I just always feel better for it.I attended the opening of Slope Wellness today, and am really excited. It's a beautiful, tranquil space on 8th Ave. btwn 8th/9th Streets. They offer acupuncture, herbology, massage, rolfing, nutrition counseling, and yoga classes, and are running some Grand Opening specials this month. I hope more people take advantage of this resource while we support a new local business!
