Your investment allows the clinic to be open and provide low-cost treatment for all those who need it, and the donation-only days ensure that all can get treatment, regardless of their ability to pay. Investing in Community Supported Acupuncture is about helping to sustain a healthcare resource for your community.
The Mission – Making Wellness Accessible
At CSAcu, our belief – that an individual’s health and well-being is connected to that of their community – is more than just idealism, it is deeply integrated into our business model. Accessibility, affordability, and appropriate care are the cornerstones of the organization. CSAcu offers sliding-scale private acupuncture treatments and, one day each week, offers group acupuncture entirely free. By paying for services or donating to CSAcu, our patients and supporters are directly contributing to others’ ability to access services, regardless of financial means. In 2015, we provided over 600 treatments for no charge. In 2016 the number of free treatments nearly doubled. Already in 2017 we’ve offered nearly 600 free treatments in the first 6 months. We’ve also been able to offer affordable tai chi, yoga, and meditation classes.
