Are you an evening sort of person?  Jump start your career as an acupuncturist with plenty of patients, full support of a team, and free of worries about attracting patients or marketing.

We are a full-service community acupuncture clinic using gentle Japanese style acupuncture techniques and a Shang Han Lun/Fire Spirit School herbal pharmacy. If you have not had any training in Japanese Meridian Therapy, we will train you in our style & methods; if you have some JMT training, we will assist you in translating your skills to a community acupuncture setting and adapting to our clinic style.

Minimum 30 hrs/week up to 40 hrs/week, if you wish.

Pay scale: during your 30-90 day training period, pay is $20/hour.  As you become more adept & productive in a community acupuncture setting, our pay scale is $22-35/hr and merit raises are considered every 3 months in your 1st year and yearly after that.

SIMPLE IRA retirement program
Professional liability insurance covered
Acupuncture/herbal medicine in house health plan
