Welcome to Our Community!

At Downtown Community Acupuncture (DCA), you can afford to feel better.
DCA offers affordable acupuncture in a peaceful community setting. Our sliding scale is $20-$45 with a first time intake fee of $15. You pay what you can afford - we will not ask you about your income. 

Cancellation/Missed Appointment Policy
  Out of consideration for other patients who want to be seen, please note our 12 hour cancellation policy.  If you cancel within 12 hours of your appointment, or miss your appointment, you will be charged a standard $20 fee. As appointments are fifteen minutes long, arriving ten or more minutes late is considered a missed appointment. Please note that you will not be able to change/modify your appointment online with less than 12 hours notice. If you would like to reschedule your appointment time only, with less than 12 hours notice, please call the clinic. We will move your appointment time, if we can. Rescheduling for another day constitutes a missed appointment on the originally scheduled day. Thank you for your understanding.

What you need to know about your appointment:

  • We often have more than one practitioner working. You can choose No preference below to see all available times, or choose your practitioner of choice. If you have ever received a treatment at DCA as a NEW PATIENT please schedule all follow up acupuncture appointments as a RETURNING PATIENT.

  • Afternoon/evening appointments conclude with needles removed by 6:15 p.m. Appointments scheduled at the end of a practitioner's shift conclude with needles removed after one hour.
  • For your safety, patients requiring assistance to get in and out of recliners will need to bring a helper. Thank you.

  • **IF YOU ARE SICK: please do come in. Acupuncture can bring relief! *However, if you are coughing or sneezing we will need to reschedule your acupuncture for another day, out of consideration for other patients. Or, you can come in for a herb consultation instead of acupuncture. We will prescribe herbs to help your symptoms and send you home to rest. Thank you for your understanding!
