The People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA) is kicking off their annual Spring Membership drive. Providence Community Acupuncture (PCA) is a proud member of POCA, which is a cooperative of patients, clinics like us, acupunks, and allied organizations committed to working together to make acupuncture accessible and affordable to as many people as possible. To encourage you to become a member, we are offering $10 treatments to all POCA members at PCA all month long in May!
Patient and community memberships are $25 to $100 sliding scale, which more than pays for itself in benefits. All membership dues help fund POCA Tech, a new school training community acupuncturists to spread affordable acupuncture, and microloans for clinics in underserved areas.
