Feel Better Acupuncture Room is a clinic in Southeast Portland offering affordable acupuncture in a group setting. We use a sliding scale to make acupuncture accessible to more people, regardless of income. The first treatment is $25-$50, and all follow-ups are $15-$50: you decide how much you can afford to pay, no questions asked.

This clinic is a hate free zone.


What to Expect

We provide acupuncture in a group setting. Patients remain fully clothed and are seated in zero gravity reclining chairs. We ask that you roll sleeves up to the elbow and pants up to the knees if possible. Normally we place needles below the elbows and knees, and in the head, but if you have clothing that makes this impractical, we can choose different points to accommodate whatever you’re wearing. If there are any parts of the body you do not want touched or needled, please let us know.

Treatments normally last about 45 minutes. Some people feel like they’re ready to go sooner than that. If you’re one of those people, or if you need to be up by a certain time, just let us know and we’ll remove the needles when you request it.

Many, but not all, people fall asleep during acupuncture treatments. This means sometimes people snore. If snoring bugs you, you might want to bring earplugs just in case.

There is quiet music playing in the treatment room. If you prefer your own music, ocean sounds, spoken word poetry, or any other soundtrack to help you relax during treatment, you can bring headphones and listen to whatever you like from your mobile device. Please make sure that your headphones don’t broadcast sound — if other people can hear your music that won’t really work.

We have blankets to keep you warm and cozy, but if you have a favorite blanket from home you’d like to bring, please do! Whatever makes you the most relaxed. Autistic folks: you can bring your weighted blankets, but we might need to prop them up a little above needles in your feet to keep the needles comfortable. We’re very happy to experiment with you on the best setup for your comfort.

Sliding Scale

We use a sliding scale for acupuncture treatments. The first treatment is $25-$50 and all follow-ups are $15-$50.

You decide each time how much you can afford to pay. No income verification is required. This allows you to adjust the amount based on your current circumstances (cash flow, how many treatments you’re getting, other variable expenses, etc.) without worrying about being able to pay for your acupuncture treatment. So for example, maybe you normally pay $25, but this week money’s a little tighter or we’ve recommended you come in several days in a row to help your twisted ankle — pay $20 instead. We don’t ask questions, we just give you acupuncture. 🙂

The price you pay does not affect the length of your treatment, the number of needles we use on you, or anything else other than our checking account (and yours!).


We do not bill insurance because they don’t allow for sliding scales without income verification.

If you have insurance that covers acupuncture, we would be happy to provide you with a receipt containing the proper billing code so that you can submit it for reimbursement on your own.

Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel an appointment, please give us 24 hours notice so that there’s time for someone else to take that appointment slot.

Appointments canceled with less than 24 hours notice will result in a $15 cancellation fee.

About Us


ADA/Wheelchair access: Feel Better is ADA-accessible. There is a marked handicapped parking space right in front of the clinic, with a ramp for sidewalk access. Doors are 36″ wide, and the bathroom meets all ADA requirements. If you prefer to receive treatment in your wheelchair, we have space in the treatment room for this.

Limited Mobility: If you require assistance to get in and out of chairs, or to remove your shoes and adjust your clothing, you are welcome to bring an attendant with you. We are not able to provide these services, so if you require such assistance but have no attendant, we will simply place needles in areas already exposed and skip over the feet and covered areas. Note that we do not have a separate waiting area, so if the attendant does not wish to receive acupuncture as well, they can come back to get you toward the end of your treatment.


Most inclusivity statements have a laundry list of all the things they won’t discriminate against: gender, religion, race, sexual orientation, disability, income level, nationality, etc. At Feel Better, we won’t discriminate based on those things, either. More importantly, we want to make it clear that we not only welcome the people protected by such anti-discrimination statements, we will safeguard our space to make sure that it remains welcoming.

Any action or speech by patients or visitors that is racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, ableist, body-shaming, or otherwise derogatory or hate-based will not be tolerated in our clinic. This includes clothing and tattoos: if you are wearing language or symbols that promote the disallowed categories above and disrupt the space, we will ask you to leave the clinic and only return when you can leave such symbols behind.
