The Sliding Scale Payment Method

Community Health Acupuncture Center uses a sliding scale to provide affordable, high quality treatments. Research shows that acupuncture is most effective when it is done frequently and regularly. Once a week is usually the minimum required to see results in a reasonable amount of time.

The purpose of the sliding scale is to separate issues of money from treatment; we want you to come in often enough to really get better and stay better! The table below is only a suggested guideline for what you might pay. We will never ask you to verify your income with tax returns or other documents. We understand that everyone's situation is different, and our primary goal is to make acupuncture available to you as often as you need it. You decide what you can afford.
