Community Acupuncture

Our mission at Purple Dragon is to make health care accessible to all by providing a place where people may gather for low-cost, high quality acupuncture.

We offer acupuncture treatment in an informal, serene group setting with affordable pricing. You remain fully clothed while relaxing in comfortable zero gravity recliners surrounded by soothing soft music under our unique and perpetual blue sky with wispy clouds. Because we administer treatment in a a large room, your family or friends may come in to receive treatment together. The community treatment setting allows us to provide treatment at a low cost.  You pay just $15-40* for treatment, depending on what you decide fits your budget. No explanation necessary. The price you pay will never affect the type or quality of treatment you receive. (*and one time $10 set-up fee)

We represent a return to tradition. It is customary in China for patients to be treated in a room with other patients, drawing on the synergistic effect of group healing. Such collective healing energy, or Qi (“chee”), enhances the power of each patient’s treatment. As in China, our affordable price empowers patients to receive frequent treatments to achieve fast healing.

Acupuncture is a holistic medicine that treats a wide variety of health conditions including pain, respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, neurological, and emotional conditions. Acupuncture points exist all over the body. Points on the arms, legs, neck, and head stimulate acupuncture meridians that flow throughout the body.  Such “distal” points can treat a myriad of health conditions anywhere in the body by stimulating the flow of Qi through targeted meridians . For this reason, patients may remain fully clothed in our community acupuncture setting. You simply remove your shoes and socks, and roll your sleeves and pants up to your elbows and knees to expose your lower arms and lower legs for treatment. We have cozy blankets to keep you warm in the winter, and air conditioning to cool you during those rare hot summer days.

We are part of a growing network of community acupuncture clinics in Seattle and beyond. Click here for listing of other community acupuncture clinics in Seattle.  Click here to find community acupuncture clinics across the continent or to learn about the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA), the mutli-stake holder community acupuncture co-operative of North America.
