About POCA

The People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA) is a member-run 501(c)(6) non-profit organization whose mission is to work cooperatively to increase accessibility to and availability of affordable group acupuncture treatments. We envision a world in which every community has access to local, affordable acupuncture to reduce collective and individual suffering and nurture resilience.

POCA members work together to:

  • Build healthy relationships, collaborate, and share knowledge among acupuncturists, students, community acupuncture clinics, Auricular Acu-technicians (AATs), patients and community members.
  • Develop and support best practices for affordable acupuncture clinics.
  • Create sustainable, enriching, living-wage jobs for the staff and owners of affordable acupuncture clinics.
  • Create more equity in healthcare systems.
  • Build alliances with organizations working to create equitable communities and sustainable, just economies.
  • Work with regulators to ease entry into the acupuncture profession and engage with legislative processes to ensure safety and access are prioritized.
