About the Employer

I've been in practice 30 years and at the same office 27 years.  I would like to transition to someone who will take care of the dear people and families I've known.  This is a concierge style practice, taking time for individuals.  Strong connections with Stanford, PAMF, and local chiropractors and other healthcare providers.  I've also worked with several NIH studies and have connections for you.

Job Description

Unique opportunity to own an established, low maintenance, nearly all

acupuncture and Chinese medicine practice of Catherine Burns, is
located between San Jose and San Francisco in Los Altos, with an
additional office available in nearby San Carlos. With an affluent and
health-conscious population and almost 30 years of consistent return
business, the opportunity to have an abundant practice drawing from
two major metropolitan areas is available from the moment you step
Imagine making well over $100,000 per year working only two days
per week with a month off per year for vacation. No marketing
necessary—the exceptional reputation of this practice keeps a steady
flow of new patients streaming in. Low overhead, years of records,
zero employees and consistent patient flow mean you’ll continue to
keep your costs predictably low. Add more hours, accept more
insurance, and/or take over the San Carlos location 20 miles away, and
you have the chance to add even more success to an already
prosperous practice.
Whether you are a practitioner who is just starting out, or an
established clinician with some years under your belt, this practice
offers you the chance to hit the ground running. Step into this rare,
once-in-a-lifetime, turn-key opportunity to run the practice of your
dreams in one of the most prosperous and recession-proof areas in the
country. Call or email us today, come by and spend some time with us,
and be thriving in a couple of short months.
The Setting
Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, Los Altos and San Carlos are
situated between San Francisco to the north and San Jose to the south
and are just a few miles from Stanford University. Each community
has a population of just over 30,000, with easy access to much of the
larger San Francisco and San Jose Metropolitan Areas—6.5 million
people. At the epicenter of the high-tech industry and the mid-point
of the beautiful San Francisco Peninsula, Los Altos and San Carlos are
known for their great climate and profound sense of community. They
are also known for their exceptional climate, with an average of 255
sunny days per year. Los Altos and San Carlos have also won numerous
awards for the quality of their schools, the safety of their communities,
and the exceptional amenities of their adorable downtown shopping
For 27 years, the main clinic for sale in Los Altos has been located in
an established building just minutes from two major interstates on
Silicon Valley’s most famous thoroughfare, El Camino Real. The space
consists of a large reception area and waiting room with floor-toceiling
windows overlooking a courtyard, three treatment rooms, and
a back office with desk, bookshelves, and sink. There is plenty of free
parking and easy access to public transportation.
Patient Demographics
Real Health is a non-specialty practice, seeing everything from
subclinical and acute orthopedic conditions to chronic issues that have
not responded to other medical interventions. Current specialties
include digestive problems, women's health issues, fertility, allergies,
pain, and stress.
The patient population has spanned from infants to great grandparents
and everyone in between. That said, the majority of the current patient
load consists of women between the ages of 25 and 60. Many patients
are high-earning professionals who are associated with local tech
companies and nearby Stanford University. Most continue to come in
for maintenance on a consistent basis, and nearly all patients pay in full
at time of service. Almost no insurance billing!
Given the owner’s long history in the area, almost all patients are
referred by word-of-mouth, and some come through the practice’s
online presence and exceptional reputation. The current owner is
happy to provide years of past calendars to prove consistent patient
Modalities Utilized
The current owner employs Zang-Fu and channel theory diagnosis and
treatment methodologies, as well as Richard Tan’s Balance Method,
Master Tung points, and some Kiiko Matsumoto/Japanese
Acupuncture techniques. Cupping and moxibustion are used as
appropriate. A large part of the practice also involves Qigong. About
a third of patients are prescribed herbal medicines.
Income and Expenses
The following income and expense summaries are derived from an
average of income and adjusted* expenses from 2019-2021. Note that
the current owner has office hours two days per week in the Los Altos
office and takes up to four weeks off per year.
Average gross yearly revenue (3 years): $143,464 ($11,955/month)
Average adjusted expenses: $54,353 yearly ($4,529/month)
*Adjusted expenses are the net expenses that a new owner would have
to take on in order to run the business at the same level of revenue as
the current owner.
Net Profit:
Average $89,111 per year ($7,426/month)


Knowledge and appreciation of the treasures of Acupuncture, Herbs, - Qigong would be great too.  Many Apple, Google, and local older patients.
