About the clinic

South Austin Community Acupuncture grew out of a desire to create a neighborhood clinic that represents a natural expression of ourselves into the community we live in.


Wally Doggett L.Ac. and Kelly Jennings L.Ac., CPA

Wally and Kelly Doggett

Wally and Kelly opened South Austin Community Acupuncture together in 2006. The rest, as they say, is history...

Both are graduates of the Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin and licensed by the State Medical Board to practice acupuncture in Texas.

While a student at AOMA, Wally apprenticed with acupuncturists Allen Cline and James Phillips, as well as senior herbalist Dr. Wu Peirong at Turtle Dragon Health Services. In addition to being a Licensed Acupuncturist, Kelly is also a CPA.

Wally also serves dutifully as the president of the Texas Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

Christanne Spell

Christanne Spell, L.Ac.

Licensed by the Texas Medical Board to practice acupuncture in Texas, Christanne is a graduate of Texas Health and Science University (formerly Texas College of Traditional Chinese Medicine) and a Louisiana native. After accumulating some valuable life experience doing a little of this and that here and there, Christanne made her way back to South Austin and found her way to us. We're glad she did.

Jen Schneider

Jennifer Schneider, L.Ac.

The first of the new crop of upcoming SACA acupuncturists: Don't be fooled by her mild manner. She's a rock star with a resume as long as your arm. She has done, and can do, just about anything. Hardworking and smart as a whip, Jen comes to us by way of AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine. Habla español.

Sara Calland

Sara Calland, L.Ac.

Head, heart, and hands - and not necessarily in that order - meet Sara Calland. A citizen of some Eastern states and some Western states. Sara spent her early life around Mexico City, and subsequently won awards in North Carolina as a student for her Spanish language abilities. Yet another of the recent crop of AOMA graduates we are proud to employ here at SACA.

Mike Sobin

Mike Sobin

There would be no South Austin Community Acupuncture without the likes of Michael Sobin. He was around back in the old South Lamar days, when we still did things like have miniature horses at parties and such. Mike and his wife Margaret are now the proud purveyors of Louisville Community Acupuncture.
