About the Employer

Who Are We?

We provide an opportunity to see many diverse patients while working in a fun and supportive environment. 

While we value experienced punks, we are happy to train new practitioners. 

We start all our punks at a base hourly of $15/hour with a commission bonus of $7.50 per patient over 8 in a given shift. All of our shifts are generally 5 hours seeing 6 patients an hour. 

We do not emphasize any specific style or method beyond doing what you think is really awesome acupuncture, but not making a big deal about it. 

We expect our punks, after training and shadowing, to navigate our online scheduling, online chart noting, and invisible receptionist. 

We have a very low tolerance for shenanigans, but enthusiastically support diligent work with as many benefits as we can possibly afford.
