They sought out a cooperative and non-hierarchical business structure to take the spirit of community acupuncture through the entire business model, finally officially adopting a sociocratic business model in 2019.
We Started in a Garage
Have you wondered about the significance of the three birds in our logo?
BAC started with three women and a dream in 2014 to provide accessible community acupuncture to all people. The founders envisioned a clinic large enough to support the communities' needs, and provide living wages for the employees. A year later, they converted to a non-profit to see how far they could take acupuncture since there were some who still did not have access to this care.
In the first 5 years of business, BAC grew from three in a garage with 5 volunteers to 8 employees in a cozy community space with over 25 volunteers.
In the first full year of service BAC gave ___ treatments. In 2019 we gave a total of 14,730 treatments and are currently giving approximately 400 treatments per week. We offer treatments 7 days a week, 8am to 8pm Sunday through Friday and 8am to 4pm Saturdays.
