Also in October, POCA members can bring in a new patient and the new patient is free!!  POCA members pay along the regular sliding scale.  What’s POCA you ask?

At PCA, we are proud members of the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA) and you can be too!  POCA is a multistakeholder cooperative of clinics like ours, acupunks, patients and community members who love community acupuncture and want to make sure that more and more people have access to it through supporting new and existing clinics and POCA Tech, the only school for community acupuncturists.You can join POCA any time by following this link. Annual memberships are sliding scale $25 to $100.  You choose what you pay, no questions asked.  In addition to supporting the growth of community acupuncture, you also get a ton of amazing benefits that can make membership pay for itself.
One of the newest POCA projects is POCA Ear acupuncture trainings.  We recently had a training here at PCA and the new practitioners will be providing ear acupuncture every Saturday in October 2:30 to 4:30

Suggested donation $5-$10, no one turned away for lack of funds.

No appointments, first come, first served.

Ear acupuncture treatments by people training in the 5 Needle Protocol (aka 5NP or acudetox or the NADA protocol), helpful for pain, sleep, stress, anxiety, cravings, and recovery.
Bring a friend (or two)!

The 5 Needle Protocol (or 5NP, also commonly called acudetox or the NADA protocol) is a safe, simple, and effective treatment designed to be used by non-acupuncturists for addiction and recovery support, trauma, stress, insomnia, depression, anxiety, and chronic pain.
This training was one of the first offered by POCA (the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture), as we launched our Auricular AcuTechnician training program, building off of decades of work to expand access to this simple tool by the Black Panther Party, Young Lords, and National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA). More information about the POCA Auricular AcuTechnician or AAT training program available here:

To take advantage of any of our specials you must let us know BEFORE YOU PAY if one of our specials applies to you. Thank You!

    • Hi Michelle-
      We do sometimes run specials where the first visit is free. These 2 for 1 specials require an existing patient to bring in/or refer a new patient and the new patient’s first treatment is free. Our Summer of Love special is still happening, but you would need a Summer of Love referral card to take advantage of this special. If you know someone who already comes to PCA ask them if they have one of the coupons. Otherwise check back for future specials on the Events+Specials pages.

    • Hi Lyndsey-
      Here at PCA we do community acupuncture which is always in our comfortable group treatment room. There are some pictures around our website, or feel free to come by and see for yourself.
