Our Clinic Depends on People
Our staff, POCA volunteers, and patients are what create the community feel of Seminole Heights Community Acupuncture. Each of us contributes to the clinic vibe. Our essential mission is to help members of our community live healthy lives. We use Chinese medicine to build community, empower people to explore choices around their health, and provide opportunities to connect with the many resources in our great neighborhood.
It takes a cast of personalities to be the clinic we are: there’s the face of our front desk, the acupuncturists, the Reiki therapist, the herbalist, the back office folks doing the laundry, weeding out front, and maintaining the stock… you get it! There’s a variety of people both behind the scenes and who work with you who co-create our community.

A few things to note
- Acupuncturists in Florida are licensed by the Florida Department of Health.
- We also maintain national accredited exam based credentials.
- Acupuncturists complete four-year graduate degree programs in Chinese medicine and study a number of acupuncture techniques, Chinese herbal medicine, sciences like chemistry & anatomy, nutrition, and conventional biomedicine.
- We are trained to provide care to people in all stages of life, children to elders and everything between.
Our staff and practitioners are members of a cooperative called POCA: the People’s Organization for Community Acupuncture. POCA was established to support the growth and development of community acupuncture. Patients, clinic volunteers, and businesses are also members of POCA… you can be too!
