We are very pleased to announce that, in less than a week, Providence Community Acupuncture will be opening a second location . Our new clinic will be located on Providence St. in West Warwick, within the Thundermist Health Center . PCA in West Warwick will be like PCA in Providence in every significant way. We will be providing acupuncture for a sliding scale fee in a comfortable, community setting. You will find the same front desk heroes and the same punks, and the same commitment to making acupuncture accessible and effective enough to change patients’ lives with regular treatments. It is our goal at PCA and within the community acupuncture coop, POCA, to build strong networks of clinics as geographically wide and deep as is the demand. Opening at Thundermist is a big step in achieving this goal in Rhode Island.
We are excited about the unique partnership this venture represents between us and Thundermist Health Center. Legally and financially, the two organizations are independent entities; and we have separate mission statements. However, both PCA and Thundermist have been deliberate to create a situation where one can find affordable acupuncture under the same roof as a comprehensive community healthcare center. Thundermist patients pay on sliding scale of between $5 and $25 for acu treatments, while our traditional sliding scale of $15-$35 remains in place for all others.
Opening day at Thundermist is Monday, October 28th. To start, our hours will be Monday 3-6, Tuesday 10-1, and Friday 10-1. We will be adding more days and more hours as we get settled in and demand increases. We hope you will share this information with your friends and family in Kent and South Counties, and that you’ll come by for a treatment if the new location makes sense for you, or if you just want to help us lay down the good vibes.
