Serving South Austin and beyond since 2006...
Wally Doggett and his wife Kelly met in acupuncture school and started South Austin Community Acupuncture together in 2006. The clinic grew out of a desire to create a neighborhood clinic that represents a natural expression of ourselves into the community we live in.
Statement of Inclusivity and Ethics
We value diversity. We work to create a safe and comfortable environment for all members of our community. All are welcome here, regardless of income, education, language, race, skin color, nationality, legal status, sex, gender identity, marital status, sexual orientation, familial situation, age, religion, political beliefs, abilities or disabilities, size or shape. Your level of care will never be based on any of these factors.
We offer acupuncture, cupping, and Chinese herbal medicine.
South Austin Community Acupuncture offers acupuncture in a group setting on a radical $20-$40 sliding scale. With the support of our community we are able to provide treatment that is both accessible and affordable, so you can get acupuncture as often or for as long as needed to get the best results.
We do not offer appointments for private treatment, but do some work with on tables as necessary. This is purely at the discretion of the practitioner and contingent on our work flow.
If therapeutically relevant, cupping may be offered as part of your treatment. We do not offer sliding cupping, gua sha, or other related techniques. Cupping is an additional $20.
- Chinese herbal medicine
Our practitioners all have Masters degrees with extensive training in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, are board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and licensed by the Texas Medical Board to practice acupuncture in the State of Texas.
