SCA is Closing May 24, 2019

by Sean Honea L.Ac

Sun Rise

Thank you, Richmond.

Three years ago Southside Community Acupuncture (SCA) opened its doors with a mission to make acupuncture more accessible for those who otherwise could not afford regular treatments. In that time, we appreciate and value all of the connections we made with so many diverse patients. It is with mixed emotions that we announce SCA will be closing our doors this month. Sean was offered a great job opportunity with the VA Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska as a full time acupuncturist. As a veteran himself, he is excited about the opportunity to treat this patient population even as we are sad to say goodbye to Richmond and all of the wonderful people we have met. We will be moving in early June, but will continue to treat patients through Friday, May 24th. We wish to extend a sincere thank you to all of our patients for including us in your healthcare journey.

Dr. Fan Visits SCA!

by Erica Honea L.Ac

We had a visit from the esteemed Dr Fan to our clinic yesterday. His patients recently voted him top acupuncturist in Our Health Richmond magazine's readers poll. We discussed the need for public outreach and education about the wide range of medical issues acupuncture can help (he mentioned TMJ, back pain, and depression specifically). He believes that if people only think acupuncture is a spa service for relaxation then they will miss the opportunity to solve more serious medical concerns with our care. #rvawellness #healthyrva #acupunctureworks #rva #rvaacupuncturist


New Offerings: Private Acupuncture and Energy Work

by Sean Honea L.Ac


update 02/07/2019:  Erica shifts are now open to both Community Acupuncture and Private Acupuncture and Energy Work appointments

Exciting changes our coming to SCA! Our tiny clinic is two-and-a-half years old this month. In that time, we have offered 2,000 acupuncture treatments. With the holiday rush over, we have taken some time to reflect and consider better ways to serve our community of patients.

Starting February 1, 2019, SCA is adding affordable private acupuncture and energy work to our services. Erica’s Tuesday and Thursday shifts will be open to offering this style of treatment i.e. acupuncture and if desired, reiki, in addition to regular community acupuncture appointments.  Sean will also offer community and private treatments and energy work (medical qigong) in addition to private qigong lessons on a first come first serve basis.

Please contact us if you have any questions: 804-433-8558.
