New? Here's What To Expect.

To prevent the spread, we've made some changes to the clinic. Please read our latest update before scheduling an appointment. Thanks for your understanding!

Things are a little different for now

We offer community-style acupuncture


At Boise Acupuncture Co-op you’ll receive a personalized acupuncture treatment from a licensed acupuncturist in a comfortable recliner - don't worry, we can still treat your back/hip pain! Our treatment room is personable, warm and relaxing. Each one of our patients helps to create a respectful community space for healing.

How your first visit works


-If you haven't filled out your intake form electronically, please arrive 10 min before your appointment. Walking through the door, you will be greeted by a receptionist.


-Pay before your treatment. We charge a sliding scale payment of $20-40 and for your first time there is a one-time $10 charge. We accept cash, check, all major credit cards and Health Savings Accounts. You can prepay for your treatment online too!


-Head back to the treatment room and help yourself to a basket, cough drops, and earplugs. Choose any open and tidy chair, recline and relax.


-Your acupuncturist will review your information and health complaint(s), then meet you at your recliner to talk to you about your goals quietly.


-After the needles are inserted and you are warm and cozy, you are invited to relax for as long as you would like up to an hour. On average patients rest for 45-60 minutes, but it’s ultimately up to you. You can always let your acupuncturist know if you need to be up by a certain time. When you are ready to get up, make eye contact with your acupuncturist and they will remove your needles and recommend a treatment plan for you.

Our cancellation policy


Appointments canceled with less than 12 hours notice, or are missed altogether, are responsible for a $20 fee due before the next visit. Our mission is to provide affordable acupuncture services in a community setting, serving everyone in the community regardless of their income. If you are unable to pay the cancellation fee, please let us know.

We all help to create a shared healing space


-Silence your phone, enter the clinic quietly, and use a soft voice to help preserve the calm environment.


-Do not wear cologne, perfume, or strong smelling body products. If you smoke, please refrain from smoking right before your appointment.


-Feel free to bring headphones and listen to whatever you'd like. We have white noise makers and there is ambient music quietly playing in the background.  


-Wear loose clothing that can be rolled up to your knees and elbows. We have extra skirts, shorts and wraps for you to use as well.


-Be considerate of others. Our clinic is open and welcome to everyone. We request that you make every effort to help us in this mission.
