Community Acupuncture
At CHAC we operate a community style clinic, meaning that we treat people in recliners in a room together. We are able to take care of lots of people efficiently this way. Efficiency of treatment means we can be very competitively priced. We charge on a sliding fee scale of $15 - $35 per treatment, based on what is comfortable for you, with no income verification required. This is important because most insurance plans do not cover acupuncture, so people typically have to pay out of pocket for treatments.

Since acupuncture usually requires a series of treatments to be effective (a typical course of treatments is twice a week for 5 weeks for a total of 10 treatments), it is out of reach for many people at conventionally priced private room clinics, which usually charge $80 to $180 per treatment. This is only affordable if you have a high paying job and/or lots of disposable income. We aim to serve people of average means who have to be careful with their money!

To do this, we need to be busy helping lots of people so that affordable acupuncture at CHAC is also sustainable acupuncture (for both clients and practitioners) and to guarantee that we will be around for a very long time to provide it. To do this, we rely almost entirely on our patients telling friends, family, coworkers, acquaintances, doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists, and any one who will listen about our clinic.
