As a non-profit organization we strive to make our services accessible. We offer a sliding-scale fee structure so that those who cannot afford the higher end can pay on the lower end. We encourage those who are able to pay on the higher end to do so; because their support makes it possible for us to continue to provide these services to patients who are more challenged monetarily to access these services.
Currently, our main sources of funding are derived through service income and donations to support the Nancy Arntson Community Acupuncture Fund. If you would like to support our mission, you may donate here.

Nancy Arntson Community Acupuncture Fund
To honor the kind, warm, and healing spirit of our co-founder, Nancy Arntson, we have dedicated a community acupuncture fund in her name. The fund covers treatment costs for people who are experiencing financial hardships. Through the Nancy Arnston Community Acupuncture Fund and partnerships with programs like Access to Recovery and the Returning Veterans Project, we provided 416 free and reduced treatments to underserved populations in 2018.
In alignment with our vision of working with community members in need we have partnered with organizations to make our services more accessible.
Access to Recovery
Access to Recovery (ATR) was a program run by Oregon Health Authority which provided support and services for those who were seeking recovery from addictions. We offered community acupuncture treatments to clients who were referred via ATR. The cost of their treatments was covered through ATR so the clients did not have to pay us directly. This program ended in March 2019.
Apart from support for recovery, we also treated ATR patients for pain, sleep disturbance, stress and any related factors.

Returning veterans project
The returning veterans project is geared towards post 9/11 veterans, service members, and their families. The organization offers free and confidential health services. By partnering with RVP, we offer pro-bono community acupuncture treatments to veterans who qualify for RVP services in the Salem area.
