Welcome to Tucson Community Acupuncture!
Our mission is to provide affordable, high quality acupuncture to the Tucson community. We do this by offering individualized treatments in a quiet, open setting and asking you to decide what you can afford on a sliding scale ($15-35). We want you to come often enough to really be able to get better and stay better, and the sliding scale is our way of helping you make that commitment. There is an additional $10 paperwork fee for your first appointment.
You can book an appointment online or call us at 881-1887 to schedule a visit. New patients can also download our First Time Visit paperwork (pdf file). We look forward to seeing you!

To keep acupuncture affordable for everyone we offer a
sliding scale. You choose what to pay!
All treatments take place in a group setting—picture a large living room full of comfy recliners. Plan to wear comfortable clothing that can be pushed up to your knees and elbows.
We are open 7 days a week. Visit the scheduling page to see our hours, learn more about what to expect during your first treatment, and to book your first appointment online.
Do your homework! You can download the First Time Visit paperwork (PDF file) and fill it out in advance of your initial appointment. Otherwise, plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early to do the paperwork at our office.

Acupass: Prepay 10 visits, get 11th visit free!
Did you know that you can prepay for any number of visits at TCA? Some folks do this regularly, purchasing 2, 4 or even 8 visits at once. This helps folks commit to a treatment plan and incorporate acupuncture into their busy lives.
To make this even easier, when you purchase an Acupass for 10 prepaid visits on our sliding scale of $150-$350, we'll throw in 11th visit on the house. Inquire at the front desk for details.

Buy a Book and Support Community Acupuncture
Retail price: $10
Retail price: $25
TCA is excited to be offering two books written by our community acupuncture compatriots. Why Did You Put that Needle There? is a wonderful, pocket-sized book that answers some of the most frequently asked questions we hear at our clinic. Written by Andy Wegman from the Manchester Acupuncture Studio, this is a great book to browse through while waiting for your first visit or to buy and share with friends.
Acupuncture Is Like Noodles explains not only how acupuncture works, but how community acupuncture clinics work. Written by the founders of Working Class Acupuncture in Portland, this book is for patients, acupuncture students and prospective acupuncture students, licensed acupuncturists, other medical providers, and anyone else who is curious about the “calmest Revolution ever staged.”
A portion of each book sale goes to the People's Organization of Community Acupuncture, a multi-stakeholder cooperative organization that supports community acupuncture clinics around the country. Pick up one up at your next visit to TCA. You can also learn more about the POCA Coop online.
