A Chat with The Turning Point
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Acupuncture treatments are offered in a community room where friends and family can relax together. Acupuncture can treat pain anywhere on the body, along with stress and the side effects of stress (depression, anxiety, insomnia, digestion, headaches, etc).
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I learned of community acupuncture clinics ten years ago, while pursuing my Master of Science in Oriental Medicine. I knew immediately that I wanted to create such an affordable, accessible clinic, so people could receive care often enough to get well and stay well.
What do you love most about your job? I love that the community clinic enables me to help people from all socioeconomic groups, races, and belief systems. It is an inclusive, welcoming, accessible haven.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? Some of my patients have chosen to relocate to other cities based on whether a community acupuncture clinic was available in that city (or elected to not relocate, if such a clinic was not present).
