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


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 dedicated to offering this style of treatment i.e. acupuncture and if desired, reiki.

The community clinic will remain on Sean’s Monday, Wednesday, Friday shifts. However, Sean will also offer private treatments, energy work (medical qigong) and private lessons on a first come first serve basis.

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

Veteran Women


SCA thanks you for your Service on Veterans Day.

Free Ear Acupuncture (NADA) for all Veterans November 12, 2018 from 11 a.m. -- 3 p.m. at Southside Community Acupuncture.

The NADA protocol is a simple, standardized five-point auricular (outer ear) acupuncture modality, involving small, sterilized, disposable stainless steel acupuncture needles in 5 specific sites on each ear. NADA treatments are conducted in a group setting. After the needles are inserted, patients sit quietly for 30-60 minutes before needles are removed.

Potential Benefits: NADA auricular acupuncture may provide some relief of presenting symptoms such as pain, facilitation of the healing/recovery process, and reduction of cravings. It may also improve sleep and relieve stress.
