Circle CA to raise prices

Hello everyone.  First let me thank Lisa, Skip, Lupine and all the kind CAN folks.  The time I have spent here mining the forums and blogs for info has been invaluable.  Circle CA in San Francisco has been open for a little over 6 months now, and it could not have happened without everyones help and advice.  Now onto the good news.

We are raising our prices starting today. We will continue to work on a sliding scale, but we have adjusted the scale to reflect some new ammenities to be offered at Circle CA.   From now on, our scale will range from $50 to $180, based on your financial need.  In the future, prospective patients will need to bring in proof of income and credit reports, and we will determine your base fee.

Why are we raising our prices?  Because we love our patients.  We want to offer the best care and comfort for our patients, so we have decided to raise the prices to be able to offer some new features.  From now on, all treatments will include 1) extensive chat time with optional lifestyle advise and therapeutic counselling  2) guasha, cupping, shonishin, e-stim, acutonics, moxa, hot-stone therapy, ear candeling, and reiki will be standard features of each and every treatment session  3) vibrating heated leather recliners  4) privacy screens with personal sound sytems

Remember, at Circle CA, we do everything we do out of love and caring for our patients.  Please have a wonderful and joy filled April 1st.

I'm French-Irish-American hybrid living in SF, married to a Irish-American gal from New Hampshire. I have a son named after my hometown in Texas; he was born in the year of the Monkey (me--the Dog.) I went to school to learn how to stick needles into people in order to make them feel better. I'm broke, in-debt, and pay too much rent for a <strike>one-bedroom</strike> two-bedroom apartment. I have health insurance but owe about $2000 in medical bills and believe that CA will make my life, and others like me, more comfortable. I also have about 20 kilos of puer tea aging in a red metal cabinet -- I plan to drink it all before my days are over.

Conference Keynote: Breaking the Ceiling

The theme for this conference is “Breaking Barriers”. You know, there are so many barriers to break in acupuncture that it was really hard to choose which ones to talk about for this speech. But since I’ve spent so much time talking about classism as a barrier, I thought it might be fun to shift gears a little and talk about numbers.


  1. Exclusions

    I’ll take one of everything, except the pins.  I *hate* it when my acupuncturist comes at me with a needle!  How am I supposed to get over my related-anxiety when they want to jab me at every visit?!
