Removing barriers to care

There is a $10 one time additional fee for your first appointment. We are open 7 days a week with a wide range of available time.
in 2014 with three women (hence the three birds in our logo) and a dream 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 further increase our reach and to enable us to offer more programs to underserved populations.
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've come a long way
In the first 5 years of business, BAC grew from 3 employees treating in a garage and 5 volunteers to 8 employees in a cozy community space with over 25 volunteers. In the first full year of service BAC gave 5,446 treatments. In 2019 we gave a total of 14,730 treatments. We have had to shrink our operations in our 6th year due to COVID-19, but nonetheless we are currently providing approximately 200 treatments per week while following all local safety guidelines. We offer treatments 7 days a week, 10am-7pm Sunday - Thursday and 10am-2pm Friday and Saturday.
