Why Community Acupuncture?


Acupuncture doesn’t have to be expensive in order to be effective.

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 the first of a series outlining the reasons why we do what we do.

The first reason we are so committed to providing community acupuncture is because we know thatacupuncture doesn’t have to be expensive in order to be effective. If acupuncture isn’t affordable, it’s not accessible (let alone effective) for most people. Because we know how effective the medicine can be, and we want to be able to offer it to as many people as possible, we are hyper-focused on affordability and accessibility and we achieve this by keeping costs down and offering business hours that work for you.

Traditionally, in China, acupuncture has been an affordable and available medicine used by many and practiced in group settings, similar to the way QiWorks is designed. It doesn’t require expensive tests, equipment, or lengthy diagnoses. Rather, all that is needed is a trained acupuncturist, some pins, cotton, and ample time to rest. That’s it. It’s truly an everyday medicine for the people. We are so grateful that we are able to offer it to our community and that you are a part of QiWorks.
