An Acupuncture Service Affordable for All

Noticing the recent explosion in interest about the many benefits of acupuncture and the lack of access to this type of treatment for low-income people, Ms. B. and Ms. C. became interested in starting their own business dedicated to this alternative of effective and affordable health care treatment.

In collaboration with NELP's volunteers, Ms. B. and Ms. C. were able to incorporate the business, negotiate a lease on a space, develop a partnership agreement and draft a client agreement.

Ultimately, they have been able to open a successful business that is making a profit and offering greatly needed access to services for people of all economic backgrounds.
