New? Here's What To Expect.
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.
-Use the restroom before your treatment if needed.
-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 concern(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.
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.
