Because acupuncture does not need to be expensive in order to be effective. Because our favorite way to spread the word about how well acupuncture works is to make it available to more people. Because nothing breaks through the isolation of pain, illness, and depression like healing in a room with other humans. Because we are pleased to challenge the notion of value being attached to price. Because there aren't enough places where strangers switch off their cellphones and slumber side by side. Because for thousands of years acupuncture has been practiced in groups. Because returning acupuncture to its roots makes us so very happy. Because the vast majority of us love our work so much we can't imagine doing anything else. We are a part of the Community Acupuncture movement.
