What is Community Acupuncture?
To Our Valued Patients:
In order to safely provide services and stay open, we require that our patients be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Please bring your vaccine card or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can record it in your chart. If you are unvaccinated for a medical reason, disability, or religious exemption, please contact Lindsey and we will make arrangements. Thank you for your support and help in keeping this clinic open during the pandemic!
Please note that the group setting is suspended until further notice; we are only providing treatments in private rooms. Masks that fully cover your mouth and nose are still required, regardless of vaccination status.
At BCA, we see ourselves as part of healthcare reform. That means it is our mission to make acupuncture accessible to and affordable for everyone. We practice acupuncture in an open room, group setting, using three massage tables and a zero gravity chair when preferred. Privacy is maintained by using low voices, screens, music, white noise and doors we can close for extra privacy if needed. Most treatments are received fully clothed, using points on lower arms and lower legs. Community style acupuncture is how acupuncture is typically practiced in China and the group setting fosters a collective healing environment, usually absent from much of American culture.
Rates $65-85 per treatment. Our patients who can pay toward the higher end of the sliding scale help subsidize patients who couldn’t normally afford acupuncture treatment at all.
We are not a non-profit and do not receive grants. Instead, we depend on our patients paying what they can to support the clinic and continue our work of making effective, compassionate healthcare accessible to every bod
