Welcome to York’s most affordable acupuncture clinic!

Love Community Acupuncture is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing high-quality acupuncture care at an affordable price. The clinic is based just off the wonderful Bishy Road in York, in the middle of its vibrant and active community.

If you think you can’t afford to try acupuncture, think again: at Love Community Acupuncture, you pay what you can afford* for a 45-minute private one-to-one consultation and treatment. And although the prices are low, of course there’s no compromise on safety, hygiene or effectiveness!

The backstory

Love Community Acupuncture was set up by Karen Charlesworth, a graduate of the Northern College of Acupuncture. From 2015 to 2017, the clinic ran from Briar House in central York, treating an average of around 20 patients each day – but sadly, in late 2017 Briar House’s lease came to an end and the clinic had to close.

But in April 2018, Love Community Acupuncture opened its doors again – with a crucial difference. At Briar House, the clinic was one big room with multiple treatment couches all set out together, but in its new incarnation LCA runs as a private clinic – which means you get to see an acupuncturist in private, without other people in the same room, for the whole duration of your 45-minute appointment.

We take a lot of pride in our clinic’s warm, personal ethos, caring for you and your individual health needs, and we aim to form a ‘healing partnership’ with you to improve your health and your overall wellbeing.

So if you’ve been wanting to have some acupuncture, but you’ve been discouraged by the cost – now you can! Don’t you just Love Community Acupuncture?
