Solis Acupuncture is a thriving acupuncture start-up with clinics in Santa Cruz and Scott’s Valley.  We have been in practice for 11 years with a focus on pain management.  Our treatments consist of orthopedic acupuncture techniques, with a heavy focus in electrical stimulation and manual therapies such as cupping and gua sha.  We put a heavy emphasis on providing acupuncture based on neuroscience while honoring ancient traditions. Our mission is to bridge the gap and normalize acupuncture into mainstream medicine by working closely with allopathic physicians and communicating with them in a language that they understand. Our goal is to create a model that allows talented acupuncturists to flourish in a successful practice by taking away the burden of running a business, and allowing them to focus on what they do best. We offer full support staff.  All of the marketing, advertising, insurance billing, and administrative tasks (answering phones, scheduling, taking payments, etc) are done for you. You get to focus on doing what you do best, patient care and being an acupuncturist. We foster a culture of inspiration, education, comradery and transparency.
