Welcome to Sacramento Acupuncture Project!

The purpose of Sacramento Acupuncture Project is to make Chinese Medicine accessible by providing affordable community-centered health care. All acupuncture treatments are individualized to meet your needs, and are performed in a quiet community space.

We charge on a sliding scale: $15-35  * Cash or check only. *

You decide what you can afford. We will NEVER make you prove your income level. We want you to come often enough to really get better, and the sliding scale is our way of helping you make that commitment. There is an additional $15 paperwork fee for your first appointment. Please arrive approximately 10 minutes early for your initial visit to complete the new patient forms.

Molly on the POCA Microloan Program

Sacramento Acupuncture Project (SAP) has now been open for a year and a half.  We will forever thank POCA (People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture) for approving the Underserved Area Microloan of $7,500 that enabled us to smoothly open this location, our third (the first two are the other locations of Oakland Acupuncture Project in Oakland, CA). I’m still struck by how incredible it is that POCA has built the infrastructure and funding to financially support new and expanding clinics in this way. Having a successful microloan program was one of POCA’s priorities from the very beginning, a concept inspired by Grameen Bank‘s microfinance program providing banking and loan services to the rural poor in Bangladesh. If you haven’t yet learned about Grameen Bank and its founder, Mohammad Yunus, I urge you to start reading!

In April 2016, SAP was able to expand from having two full-time employees to adding a third part-time employee. By last October, exactly one year into business, we were able to expand the third job into a full-time position allowing us to be open 7 days a week. In the 2016 calendar year we gave 8,319 treatments, and from Day 1 to present we’ve given around 12,000 treatments total. Our POCA loan will be fully repaid in 5 months time, allowing for more available funding to be disbursed to other new POCA clinics. We have a strong patient base of regulars, with many people able to try acupuncture for the first time because the POCA model has made it affordable to them. Seeing patients come in, share the space, rest and find relief humbles me daily, and I’m grateful to have a job where I can be myself and connect with fellow humans who are struggling.

POCA patients, thank you for coming to all of our clinics and for helping to build this restful, affordable healthcare movement!
