Help Grow Access to Community Acupuncture!

Have you noticed the map on the wall in the clinic and wondered what it was all about? Now’s the perfect time to learn more– it’s the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA)’s annual fall membership drive!   Providence Community Acupuncture (PCA) is a proud member of POCA, which is a cooperative of patients, clinics like us, acupunks, and allied organizations committed to working together to make acupuncture accessible and affordable to as many people as possible.  And to sweeten the deal, PCA is offering $10 treatments to POCA members in December!

Patient/community memberships are $25 to $100 sliding scale, which more than pays for itself in benefits. Membership dues help fund POCA Tech, POCA’s technical training institute, as well as micro loans to help open clinics in underserved areas.  Joining POCA helps POCA support the spread affordable acupuncture around the country.
