As the first community acupuncture clinic in the city of Long Beach, California, we offer high-quality, affordable acupuncture every day. Our mission is to make this medicine more accessible so everyone can experience how effective it can be as part of their daily lives.
About the Owner- Susan Wiggins – I graduated from Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and received my license to practice in 2013. In my last year of school, I discovered community acupuncture and began reading everything I could get my hands on about this grassroots movement. It was clear to me then that Long Beach needed a community acupuncture clinic. Long Beach has been my home since 2004 and I am grateful to have this opportunity to share this medicine with my local community. Acupuncture is an amazing tool for improving and maintaining our health. Since I opened in 2013, I’ve given over 9,000 treatments from back pain, shingles, depression and anxiety to fertility, lupus, Sjogren’s and kidney stones. My patients are my best teachers and I am honored by their trust and inspired by their motivation to take care of themselves. I love living in Long Beach. We are big in terms of population and diversity yet have many distinctive neighborhoods that create a small-town feel. These qualities provide opportunities for us to learn more about each other every single day. My goal for LBCA is to become a significant community hub, providing a place for refuge, healing, and meaningful interactions.
