The Accessible Acupuncture Initiative, Inc is a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization incorporated in the state of Florida doing business as Accessible Acupuncture. Our mission is to serve the Greater Orlando community by increasing access to quality healthcare. We will achieve our mission by providing affordable and accessible acupuncture and herbal medicine for those currently under-served by the prevalent acupuncture business model.
Our purpose is to improve the quality of life for the members of our community by providing support for their health including relief from pain, reduction in the frequency, duration and intensity of distressing symptoms and prevention of the onset of chronic and acute diseases. We also strive to provide relief from the stress, isolation, and financial burdens often associated with healthcare.
We are a social business striving to lower, or remove, as many of the barriers to treatment that we possibly can, for as many people as we possibly can, while continuing to be financially self-sustaining so we can serve our community both now and in the future.
One of these barriers is the language we use. Through community outreach and information provided on our website (have you seen our blog?), we also strive to de-mystify Chinese Medicine by talking in terms of actual physiological functions, instead of mysterious things like 'Qi' and 'meridians' that tend to elicit visions of voodoo and quackery instead of the viable and effective form of medicine that it is.
