What’s POCA?

The People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA) is a multi-stakeholder cooperative working to make acupuncture available to as many people as possible. POCA members are acupuncturists, clinics, and – the largest membership group – patients/community members!

POCA members believe everybody should have access to the many benefits of community acupuncture. For that to happen, we need more acuPUNCturists (a.k.a. ‘punks’) in more places! That means a community acupuncture clinic in every town, everywhere.

POCA works toward this goal by funding micro-loans for new clinics, running a fantastic, affordable community acupuncture school called POCA Tech, and supporting volunteers in many other projects promoting access to affordable group acupuncture.

Strength in Numbers

Boston Acupuncture Project, a clinic member of POCA, regularly provides acupuncture treatment for everybody on a sliding scale of $20-$40. With over 150 Community Acupuncture clinics across North America, thousands of individuals are expected to receive free services on May 1st.

In May, Boston Acupuncture Project participates in POCA’s Membership Drive. We wish everybody, everywhere who had an ache or a pain had a local acupuncture clinic to turn to, so we’re making that happen – and you can join us. This year’s theme is “More Punks in More Places”.

A POCA membership is an opportunity for you to help others receive care, while also benefiting yourself. By paying once-a-year dues on a sliding scale from $25-$100, you directly support the creation of new community acupuncture clinics, and the graduation of more acu-punks from POCA Tech, so more people can get more acupuncture.

Just like our acupuncture treatments, POCA membership is the same no matter what you pay on the $25-$100 sliding scale. We appreciate any contribution you can make. To sign up for a membership go to: https://www.pocacoop.com/join-page

Membership Perks

A POCA membership can pay for itself in a few treatments, because perks include a free treatment on your birthday, 3 “free first treatment” coupons to share with loved ones, and having all new patient paperwork fees waived at any POCA Clinic (click for a map)!

Our new patient paperwork fee of $10 is always waived for all POCA members, but in May 2019, POCA members get 25% off all month long. That means you can pay just $15 for any acupuncture visit when you show your POCA membership card.

As POCA members we are creating jobs, creating community, and creating a healthier future for everyone. We hope you will join us. If you have any questions please check out POCA’s mission and vision at https://www.pocacoop.com/our-mission-and-vision, or ask your acupuncturist how much POCA means to them!

Happy new year! Special offers January 2019

Often acupuncture works best when you get a lot of treatments in a short period of time. Usually we recommend the minimum number of treatments that we think you will need, based on clinical experience – but sometimes even that amount of treatments seems like a LOT.

For example, quitting smoking – a popular new year’s resolution – often works best with acupuncture when you can come in several times every week for a few weeks!

So, in order to help support your new year’s resolutions, we’re offering a special all month of Unlimited Acupuncture Treatments. This package is good for 30 days from the date of purchase. Feel free to ask after your first treatment if this option could be right for you. Fine print is below!

Also check out Newbie Tuesdays – click here for more details! Brand new visitors get a free first treatment on Tuesday mornings at Boston Acupuncture Project, 9:00am-1:00pm, every Tuesday in January 2019.

You can make an appointment online by clicking here. Tell your friends, loved ones, anyone you know who might be able to use these specials! Best wishes for a healthy, happy new year.
