|WHAT IS COMMUNITY ACUPUNCTURE?
acupuncture is a nationwide movement to create access to acupuncture by
removing the barrier of cost from healing. We are part of an
international cooperative called People's Organization of Community
Acupuncture (POCA). POCA clinics offer treatment in a group setting and charge
on a sliding scale format ($15-50). You can become part of this
movement to reform healthcare by joining POCA!

We use points on the scalp and below the elbows and
knees to treat the entire body, so there’s no need to undress – just
remove your shoes and roll up your pants and sleeves. And yes, we can
even address your back pain by treating your wrists.
You will be surrounded by other people quietly
receiving treatment at the same time. Patients benefit many ways from
the community setting. In our busy society, it is not often we stop and
take time to relax while surrounded by our peers. This is not a lack of
privacy but an opportunity to experience treatment with family, friends
and community. As with any intentional group endeavor, the shared state
makes individual treatments more powerful. Here, the patients create the
healing atmosphere as much as the practitioner.
