Acupuncture is a Pleasant Experience. If you have never received acupuncture, you might be concerned that the needles will hurt, or that the experience of acupuncture is uncomfortable. Not at all! Our environment is relaxing and inviting, and we are very gentle. Read more about what to expect. Many people fall asleep during treatment. Read more about acupuncture.
Acupuncture Can Help You.
From stress to anxiety, arthritis to back pain, and many other conditions, acupuncture has been proven to help. Many studies currently focus on how acupuncture works. More important to us is simply that it works. This therapy has stood the test of time, for thousands of years.
Our Commitment to Your Health.
Everything about BCA is designed to make your treatment comfortable, enjoyable, and effective. Our model allows us to give effective treatments while seeing multiple patients per hour. That brings our costs down...which means that you'll pay just $20 per treatment (plus $10 paperwork fee at your first visit). More about us.
Your Commitment to Your Health.
We have set up our studio and fee structure to make acupuncture accessible and enjoyable for you. Your part is to come receive treatment as often as needed to get better and stay better. Many health conditions are chronic and will require multiple treatments. Part of the reason we make each treatment affordable is so that you can receive enough acupuncture to really make a difference in your condition.
"I have been coming to BCA for 4 weeks now, and I am continuing to see major improvements with my health. This is my first time ever doing acupuncture, and I am glad I chose BCA. The staff is very professional and kind, and eager to help fix our health problems. I feel very welcomed and relaxed and excited to return for following treatments. Thank you BCA!" -Sabrina

After two major abdominal surgeries in two months, my gastroenterology specialist doctors were convinced I'd need another surgery. My prognosis was guarded, and there was very little the doctors could do, being that my condition is so rare. I went in to BCA in tears, and pretty much faithless. Within weeks, my blood chemistry began to normalize and for the first time in 2 months I could eat (and hold down) normal solid food. Thanks Nicole! You are my hero!
