Welcome to Providence Community Acupuncture

Affordable! $20 - $40 Per Treatment

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide affordable, quality acupuncture to the community and to create living wage jobs for our workers. 

Together with community acupuncture clinics across North America, we are making affordable acupuncture commonplace. We have been serving our community since 2006 and have provided nearly 200,000 treatments (that’s over 3 million needles!) in our peaceful, welcoming clinic space.  

We are a social business and depend solely on our patient fees to support the clinic and word-of-mouth to spread the word. 

What is Community Acupuncture?

Acupuncture by nature is simple, safe, and effective health care and has traditionally been practiced in group settings like in our clinic. Acupuncturists use thin, sterile disposable needles inserted superficially into specific areas of the body in order to help the body’s ability to heal itself. Acupuncture is effective for many conditions.

At our clinic  patients are treated in comfortable recliner chairs in a quiet, soothing, supportive community setting. We practice a style of acupuncture using distal  points, that is those on the arms, legs, hands, feet, and scalp. Since these points connect with other areas of the body we can even treat back pain without ever needling into your back!

For most, acupuncture is most effective when it can be accessed  regularly and frequently, when needed.  We use a sliding scale so that you can come in as often as you need to to feel and stay good.

At PCA, family, friends, and neighbors nap together as they work towards common goals of better health, less pain, and relief from stress, tension and many more conditions. Together, with community acupuncture clinics around New England and across the country, and as part of the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA) we are working to make affordable acupuncture accessible to everyone in our communities.  Join us!

For Returning Patients

Returning Patients can use our online scheduler.
If you  need help using it give us a call at 401-272-2288.

Please note: We do not schedule or cancel appointments via email. 

Appointments cancelled without 24 hours notice may be charged a $15 missed appointment fee.

Please give us as much notice for changes and cancellations so that we can offer this time to someone else wanting an appointment. Thanks!  


For New Patients

Call us to  make your first appointment. 401-272-2288, or stop in and set one up in person. 

Because New Patient appointments require a small bit of paperwork we need you to arrive 15 minutes before  your appointment time. You can download and fallout the paperwork from our website too. 

Online scheduling is NOT available for New Patients even though the scheduler will allow you to register. If you are a new patient and have tried to use the online scheduler let us know so that we don’t duplicate you in our system.
Thank you!
