In order to better serve the community, Agate Acupuncture will offer a reduced rate or treatment for two new patients each month. Agate Acupuncture recognized that quality, holistic, alternative care is not accessible to many as an out of pocket expense. In order to create more accessibility around this medicine, we have a reduced rate for qualifying individuals. To Qualify, you must be receiving state aide for healthcare costs ( MA, MN care, SNAP etc). We just ask that each reduced rate patient commit to at least 3 treatments a month to achieve and sustain results. (more frequent treatments may be recommended based on specific conditions initially) But we understand the financial barrier that exist for many folks, and are willing to work with you.
