About the film:
In 2002, Portland acupuncturists Skip Van Meter and Lisa Rohleder opened a clinic with the intention of making acupuncture affordable and accessible to people of ordinary incomes. They redesigned the conventional acupuncture business model, treating patients in a communal setting in used recliners, and charging a sliding scale of $15-35 per treatment. Today their model has spawned a growing movement which includes over 175 member clinics nationwide.
