Why Community Acupuncture?

Because we are pleased to challenge the notion of value being attached to price.

You can probably tell that QiWorks isn’t a typical business. Our mission is to provide affordable healthcare to our community; we exist for a number of reasons that culminate in a desire to make our community a better and healthier place. This is thefifth in a series outlining the reasons why we do what we do.

The fifth reason we are so committed to providing community acupuncture is because we are pleased to challenge the notion of value being attached to price.

When new patients come into the clinic and we explain our sliding scale to them, they often have questions like: “If I pay more, do I get more needles, or a longer treatment?” and “How will the treatment be different if I pay more than the minimum?”

We gladly explain that unlike many things in our society, the quality of the acupuncture here is completely unaffected by how much the patient pays, and, in fact, the acupuncturists don’t even know how much the patients pay. Instead, we have patients set their own price so that they will be able to afford to come in often enough to get better, with everyone receiving treatments of the highest quality no matter how much they pay. 

We are grateful that you are part of our affordable healing revolution. Thank you for spreading the word about community acupuncture!
