  • I have always been fearful of needles, but my experience @ Y.B. has eliminated that fear! I LOVE coming here!

  • You guys saved my life. You continue to support my health and well being. The quality of treatment is consistent across practitioners. Love the space. Love the people. Love the approach.

  • I came in with a lot of pain in my right hip. Two sessions later and I feel 100% better. I highly recommend the Community Center. Did I mention how friendly everyone is?

  • i cut my finger chopping onions (dont judge me) and wandered in looking for a band-aide. I was greeted by Demetra, who was unbelievably sweet! she hooked me up with a band-aide and talked to me briefly about acupuncture and i decided to try it! I was pleasantly surprised by the experience, and i would recommended this place to ANYONE! It is VERY reasonably priced and every friend that I’ve brought in loved it as well. go check it out and see for yourself! i never thought i’d say this, but i’m glad i cut my finger that day because if i didn’t, i probably would have never found out about this place!

  • The service , and great sliding scale fees are appealing. My back feels SOOOOOO much better since my last treatment. This nurse really LIKES YBCA !!!!!

  • I was referred here by a classmate, and it was one of the BEST recommendations I’ve ever received! This place exudes grounding energy. It is quiet and clean, and the cost is so manageable. I saw Tanja and she is very professional, kind and detailed in her explanations. I felt very comfortable with her. I will absolutely go there regularly, we need more community practitioners as giving as them!


What We Treat:

Acupuncture is an unusual tool for healthcare in that it can have an effect on almost any condition. It seems to work in two ways: by helping the body go into it’s “rest and repair” state and by improving circulation throughout the entire body. Because of that, we successfully treat conditions ranging from pain to stress, anxiety to insomnia, chronic illnesses to just catching a cold.
