Your Acorn Community Acupuncture clinic is also proud to be a Member of the The Association of Community and Multi-bed Acupuncture Clinics (ACMAC). ACMAC is the centre of excellence for practitioners who wish to make acupuncture accessible to as many people as possible through the provision of affordable acupuncture treatment in multi-bed clinics where costs are kept low by treating several people at the same time.
