Backyard Healthcare Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation doing business as Tucson Acupuncture Co-op. We are committed to providing affordable and effective acupuncture treatment to the community of Tucson in a comfortable group setting.

Our sliding scale is always $15 – $35. There is a one-time new patient paperwork fee of $10.

You decide what you can afford. The purpose of our sliding scale is to separate the issues of money and treatment; we want you to come in often enough to really get better and stay better!

We understand that everyone’s situation is different, and our primary goal is to make acupuncture available to you as often as you need it.


We are located at 204 E. Fort Lowell Rd. (one block east of Stone Ave.). The clinic is on the southeast corner at Estrella Ave.

There is plenty of free parking in our lot and on Estrella Ave., and we are ADA accessible.

If coming from I-10, take the Miracle Mile exit and head East.

We are easily accessible by bus or bike (route 19. 34. 6 and the 6th Ave./Fontana Ave. bike route) and we have a bike rack!

For the month of July we are running a 2-for-1 promo. If a returning patient books a treatment, they can also book another treatment for a friend or family member who HAS NOT been in to see us ever, and it’s two treatments for the price of one on our sliding scale of $15-35! This is the perfect way to let someone check out acupuncture and see what they think. Please book both treatments at the same time/day and get in touch if you have any questions.

We are OPEN on July 4th! 9:30-4:30 as usual.
On Saturday July 13th, Ellen will be covering for Whitney.
On Monday July 15th, TACO will close at 2:30 pm.
Ellen is away from the clinic the week of July 22nd — her shifts will be closed on Monday, July 22nd, Thursday July 25th, and Friday July 26th; please be aware our hours will be limited those days.
Thank you for your understanding and flexibility!

Starting the first week of August, we will be adding in another shift on Monday mornings from 9-12, with Cate! For everyone who likes to get started early in the week and early in the AM — this is for you! Ellen will be taking over Cate’s Saturday morning shift from 9:30-1.
