Love the Way This Clinic is Set Up?
It is thanks to the co-op, POCA – the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture, that we operate the way we do.
As a clinic, OSCA and over 200 other member clinics around the country, get enormous support from POCA. We also love that POCA creates micro-loans to help start up new clinics in under-served areas, and that POCA is addressing student debt through POCA-Tech, an affordable acupuncture school.
We are always eager to have our patients get more involved in the roots of community acupuncture by becoming a member.
