About PhxCA

At Phoenix Community Acupuncture, you can receive from 3 to 6 treatments for the same price as 1 private treatment elsewhere.

In Asia, acupuncture has traditionally been practiced in a group setting rather than in private treatment rooms. In the United States, private treatments typically cost between $60-120 per session, which is more than most people can afford, and insurance coverage for acupuncture is often limited. Acupuncture is most effective when received frequently until your health improves. Our sliding scale allows you to come in often enough to see positive results.

Phoenix Community Acupuncture is a 501c3 nonprofit corporation who provides acupuncture on a sliding scale of $17-$35* a treatment with no income verification, no questions asked, you decide what you can afford. (*$10 paperwork fee for new clients.)

In our clinic patients are treated in reclining chairs grouped in a shared, comfortable, soothing space. Treating patients in a community setting has many benefits:

  • Patients find the recliners extremely comfortable.
  • Friends and family members can come in for treatment together.
  • Many patients find it a comforting and powerful experience to be treated in a shared space.
  • We can provide high quality, effective, treatments at a low cost treatments to our community.

We practice highly effective and gentle methods of acupuncture in which we select points on the limbs, head, and ears to treat patients who are fully clothed. So, we ask you to please wear loose clothing so that we can roll sleeves and pantlegs up as necessary. Patients can then relax comfortably in their recliner for the course of the treatment. It is not uncommon to fall asleep and wake feeling refreshed.
