About Southside Community Acupuncture

In opening SCA, we appreciate and value all the kindness, generosity and support we have received, and we wish to extend the same sense of care and connection to our patients. 

Your unique health care situation is of the utmost importance to us. We are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding how acupuncture and Chinese medicine can benefit you. Together we can work toward achieving your health and wellness goals. 

Our Mission

Our mission at SCA is to provide high-quality, affordable, community supported acupuncture for the Southside and surrounding area of Richmond. “Community Supported” is a term used by community clinics around the country who were inspired by the Social Business model as defined by Nobel Peace Prize laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus

Our Goal

Our goal is to offer people as much acupuncture as they need at a price they can afford in order to facilitate better health and wellness. 

Our Promise

As owners of the clinic, we promise to give quality care, open regular hours our patients can attend, and charge a rate at which our of patients can regularly afford. Moreover, we promise to remain flexible and open to community support i.e. get out of our own way and let the community help us succeed. This can occur in a variety of ways, whether through suggestions, volunteer activities, organic marketing, or by us remaining open to all our community has teach us as not only as practitioners of an ancient healing art, but as owners of a sustainable business model.  

Community Promise

In return the community promises to regularly seek out the care they need, tell people about their community’s clinic, and be there in creative ways when their clinic needs support, so we can live a sustainable life as well. Please see the Support SCA page for more details.
