We are tentatively beginning to accept appointments starting the week of May 19th. During this time of COVID-19 we have some new policies:


You must have an appointment.

We will be practicing social distancing.

A face mask is required while at the clinic.

Please understand many of our clients are vulnerable. If we are to provide services, everyone of us has to do our part to protect one another.

If you may have been exposed to COVID-19 or are unwilling to follow the procedures please do not come to the clinic. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. We hope you all are healthy and taking good care of yourselves and each other. 


We are excited to announce new practitioners and services: Patti Marin, LCSW is accepting new clients for counseling Tuesday evenings. 


Community Acupuncture Hours:


Tues, Thurs, & Sundays:


and Wednesdays 6-8 pm.

Appointments are Required.

Mondays and Fridays are reserved for private one hour sessions of counseling and/or acupuncture at a sliding scale rate of $40-$60.

You may schedule yourself using the link below or contact Melissa by phone or email. (Private appts can be for yourself or with family and friends. Please know they do require a 24 hr cancellation.)

Please note for Community days: Your relaxation is our goal. If you aren't sure when you can make it, that's ok, just come when you can. If you have a tight schedule, make an appointment and let us know. If you schedule yourself at a time you can't make it, no problem. We are here waiting to help you relax, whatever that looks like for you is fine with us.



Did you know for the price of lunch you can come relax, unwind, and heal for 30 to 45 minutes? Feel refreshed and renewed ready to tackle the rest of your to do list.

Did you know that acupuncture really works? We offer our treatments at a low sliding fee so that you feel comfortable trying acupuncture and can get the acupuncture you need. We know that you will love it and feel better. Regular, frequent acupuncture will make a huge difference in your life.

Did you know that acupuncture doesn't hurt? The needles are as thin as a hair and easily enter the skin. Most people don't feel much, common sensations are warmth, pressure or itching. Many people sleep during treatment.

Did you know that acupuncture can treat anxiety and depression? Regular acupuncture treatment provides much of the same benefits of a regular meditation practice. Reset your adrenal and hormone systems while napping in a quiet room.

Why Community?

 Acupuncture is subtle and cumulative, meaning the more you get, the stronger the effect! Common side effects include: relaxation,  decreased stress, and an elevated mood. A typical course of treatment is 6-8 sessions. We want you to be able to experience the full benefits of acupuncture by making it affordable and easy to get a complete treatment course in a short period of time. 

 Bring your friends, family, co-workers or anyone else you think could benefit from acupuncture.  Rest next to each other. Acupuncture helps you feel better and have a better quality of life. We want everyone to experience the healing power of acupuncture. 

$15-$35 Sliding Fee
