About Us


Communi-Qi Acupuncture offers affordable Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine to support the health, care and wellness of Santa Cruz.

Communi-Qi, said “Communi- Chi”,  Acupuncture opened its doors in June 2011 with a group of owners and a vision.  Bringing affordable, Community Acupuncture to Santa Cruz.  Upon opening its doors, Communi-Qi Acupuncture was a hit! We have been a successful and thriving source of acupuncture in the Santa Cruz community.  Our practice includes a group of highly trained Traditional Chinese Medicine providers focused on providing service and healthcare to the community.  

Community Acupuncture practices exist in most cities around the country.  The focus is on returning to the traditional group environment treatment as in Asia.  Group treatment allows for collective healing, efficient and affordable treatment.  Receiving acupuncture in a serene, group environment  allows everyone to share in the healing ambience, the “Communi-Qi”.

Our cash payer’s may enjoy both sliding scale discounted treatments for either Community or Private treatment fees. Initial Community Appointments are $65.  Follow-up appointments are $40-60, sliding scale.  Community treatments are very basic, come-in & get acupuncture.
