About the Clinic
Acupuncture Together is a privately owned, for-profit, local business. Our mission is to provide affordable, high-quality acupuncture by offering individualized treatments in a quiet, open setting. For acupuncture to be most effective, patients need to receive it frequently and regularly. We want you to come enough times to feel better.
Patients remain fully clothed in comfortable recliners in our quiet, soothing community room. Treating patients this way has many benefits beyond being more affordable. Many people find it comforting to have others around them rather than being isolated in a private room. The group treatment room creates a collective healing energy that enhances the power of each individual’s treatment, and it allows families and friends to get treatments together.
We are part of a growing movement of community acupuncture clinics around the country that are practicing this business model – both patients and practitioners love it!
Since opening in 2010, we have provided over 50,000 affordable acupuncture treatments.
