Long Beach Community Acupuncture has moved!
Here’s what you need to know:
Fee Changes: Starting October 15 our sliding scale fee will begin at $20 and range to $50. The $10 initial consultation fee remains the same. However, our “no-show” and “late cancellation fee” will rise to $20 as well. Like all medical practices, we save your appointment time just for you and rarely recoup the loss of revenue when someone misses a scheduled appointment. We appreciate your thoughtful scheduling and understanding of this policy.
Appointments Only: We will only accept patients with appointments. As our chair space is limited in our new building, we do not have extra room for walk-in patients or people bringing friends or family not on the schedule. Please make sure you get a confirmation email and a reminder email stating your appointment time. If you don’t, the appointment probably wasn’t booked correctly. Be sure to check spam and junk mail too! And, if you haven’t refreshed your Schedulicity app, then be sure to do so, as it will update all availability.
Resting Times: We have always guaranteed an hour-long rest and will continue that service. Longer times will not be possible, given our limited space. As always, we require at least a 30 minute rest for the needles to do their work, so make sure and give yourself enough time to receive the most benefit.
Schedule Changes: Our treatment schedule includes some significant changes. We will be open from 10 am to 6 pm, Monday through Wednesday and we will no longer be closed through lunch. Fridays and Saturdays will remain open from 10 am to 2 pm, with Susan and Nirva alternating those days. The new schedule follows:
Monday - 10 am to 6 pm (Nirva a.m. & Susan p.m.)
Tuesday - 10 am to 6 pm (Susan a.m. & Nirva p.m.)
Wednesday - 10 am to 6 pm (Nirva a.m. & Susan p.m.)
Thursday - 1 pm to 5 pm (Susan)
Friday - 10 am to 2 pm (alternating practitioners)
Saturday - 10 am to 2 pm (alternating practitioners)
New Services with Susan will be offered on Thursdays from 1 pm to 5 pm. On this day we will begin offering acupuncture with add-ons (like cupping, gua sha, and other specialized needle techniques). These appointments are limited and can only be scheduled by phone. These add-on modalities will be a flat fee of $60, while acupuncture will still be from our sliding scale of $20 - $50.
A Message from Susan:
After five years and over 30,000 treatments in the East Village Arts District, we have made the decision to change our location. There's no question that 301 Atlantic, Unit D, has been a great place to start and grow our practice. We know that some of our regulars are downtown folks, and that this move is going to change your easy access to the clinic.
The good news is that we are still going to be in Long Beach, and our phone number and email address remain the same. Our updated address is 1703 Termino Avenue, unit 104, Long Beach, CA 90804. Free parking is available in the lot of our building and there is also plenty of nearby, unmetered street parking.

Thanks for your patience during our transition and your support over the last 5 years. We look forward to seeing you in the new space!
with love and gratitude,
The LBCA Team (Nirva, Ayla, Dulce, Deneke, Susan, and F.D. Panda)

More About the New Space
Our new office is only three miles away from our current one and is conveniently located within a medical suite (with all kinds of practitioners, such as a chiropractor, general practitioner, pharmacist, gynecologist, esthetician, psychiatrist, and more!). It's also near Memorial Care Health System, Kaiser, and other medical buildings. It also offers ample parking, beautiful Eucalyptus trees, and a safer surrounding neighborhood.
Our New Address:
1703 Termino Avenue
Long Beach, CA, 90804
BY CAR: Our new location offers ample parking, so our patients are welcome to drive and park in our lot. (Uber and Lyft are also great options if you're in a hurry or simply want to relax on your way to acupuncture.)
BY BIKE: Long Beach is a bike-friendly city, with multiple bike routes to try.
BUS: if you live in the East Village, then use the map at right to find the bus option that works best for you (most options do not require a transfer and take a total of 30 minutes).
