A Chat with El Dorado Community Acupuncture
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
El Dorado Community Acupuncture provides acupuncture treatments in a relaxing group setting using an affordable sliding scale. We believe that everyone should have access to acupuncture and we want you to be able to come often enough to get better and stay better!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
EDCA is part of a growing movement of community acupuncture clinics nationwide that aim to make acupuncture more accessible to people of ordinary incomes. We believe that acupuncture doesn’t have to be expensive to be effective and that everyone should have access to its life-changing benefits.
What do you love most about your job?
I love witnessing the profound difference that acupuncture can make in people’s lives when they are able to come in regularly. It’s a privilege to see and experience the body’s amazing ability to heal when it’s given a nurturing space to rest and a little nudge in the right direction.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
People often tell me that acupuncture helps them feel more like themselves and get more out of life. They handle stress better and experience less pain. Often they are able to resume work or leisure activities that they had to stop due to pain or illness. Acupuncture gives people their lives back.
