  • Do you want to be free of pain, stress, fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, depression, GI distress or other health issues?
  • Do you want high quality medical care in a friendly, casual setting?

Then we can help you!  Contact us or make an appointment today.

You will relax fully-clothed in a reclining arm chair in a soothing space that’s more like a living room than a medical clinic. We will use Chinese meridian theory to stimulate points on your lower arms and lower legs, thereby activating your energetic meridians to treat health issues anywhere in your body. The group setting helps keep your cost low while also adding collective energy to enhance your treatment.

Purple Dragon Community Acupuncture is a social business, which is run much like a non-profit because we’re more about building community than making a profit. We rely on donations of items, time, and skills as a way of keeping our prices low. Patients and friends may donate supplies or help at the front desk or behind the scenes. Our volunteers get free acupuncture! Let us know if you’d like to volunteer or donate.

We are part of the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA), a rapidly growing cooperative of over 180 clinics like ours all around the country. POCA is a multi-stakeholder co-op (like Seattle’s PCC), meaning patients can join, get involved, and receive discounts. Learn more about becoming a POCA member or find clinics like ours across the country.
