Sliding Scale $20-40
Grass Valley Community Acupuncture offers a non-income dependent sliding scale of $20-40, with a one-time first visit consultation fee of $10. You decide what you can afford on the scale. Schedule your appointment today!
At Grass Valley Community Acupuncture, our goal is to make Chinese medicine accessible to more people by making it truly affordable. We offer individualized acupuncture treatments in a quiet and meditative community setting, as well as personalized health care recommendations and herbal formulas.
Grass Valley Community Acupuncture does not receive grants, state or federal money, or insurance reimbursement. Because we have a sliding scale, we cannot do insurance billing (that’s the insurance companies’ rule). If you have insurance that covers acupuncture, we’ll be happy to give you a payment receipt so you can submit it.
We are conveniently located in downtown Grass Valley at 133 Neal St. between Mill and So. Auburn in historic downtown GV.

One great way to help us with our mission is to tell your friends about us and help spread the word. Together, we can create a healthier community!
Beyond our community acupuncture clinic here in Grass Valley, CA, a growing number of similarly structured clinics have launched across the US and abroad through the efforts of The People's Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA), a multi-stakeholder cooperative of which GVCA is a member.

What is Chinese Medicine?
Chinese medicine is a complete form of medicine that has existed for over 2,000 years. It was the primary form of healing in China until a little over a century ago.
Chinese medicine works by balancing your body to make it stronger. When your body and mind are strong and balanced, disease cannot take hold. When imbalance does occur, disease finds a foothold. Insomnia, digestive disturbances, chronic pain, heart arrhythmias, excessive sweating, weight gain or loss, and allergies are examples of early warning signs that a disease process is underway.
Chinese medicine practitioners rarely treat just your symptoms. Chinese medicine treats the root of disease.
