Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Inner Phoenix Acupuncture, LLC
Rather than looking at each person as a blank canvas for needle art, acupuncturist Joni Jackson works with her clients to educate them about the ancient treatment and learn about their symptoms, ultimately maximizing the effects of each treatment. During sessions, Joni inserts hair-thin needles to alleviate stressors on the body and psyche. Her sessions work to curb headaches, sleep issues, depression, anxiety, and addictions to tobacco or acupuncture needles.
“Very professional, clean and relaxing surroundings.”
“Joni is wonderful to work with. She listens, and helps you understand any questions you may have. Her manner and approach is top-notch.”
