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 never ask you to disclose your income. 

Cancellation/Missed Appointment Policy
Please note our 12 hour cancellation policy.  If you cancel within 12 hours of your appointment, or do not show up for 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 within 12 hours of the time booked.

Important details regarding 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 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.

  • Because of the open nature of the treatment room, if you are sick and are coughing or sneezing, you will need to reschedule your acupuncture appointment. Or, you can come in for an herb consultation instead. We will prescribe herbs to help your symptoms and send you home to rest. Thank you for your understanding. *We will gladly give you acupuncture if you are sick but are not coughing or sneezing. 

  • For your safety, patients requiring assistance to get in and out of recliners will need to bring a helper. Thank you.
