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!

Whitney is busy this weekend welcoming a new puppy into her home, so Cate will be covering her Thursday afternoon shift, and we’ll need to close at 1 PM this Saturday, October 12th! Also closing early on Monday, Oct. 14th (at 3:30 PM). If you need later evening hours next week, there’s always Tuesday til 5 and Thursday til 6! The clinic will be closed on Halloween as well.

Josh recently announced that he will be moving on and away from TACO to his next project soon, so please join us in bidding him farewell and wishing him the best in his next endeavor. With his departure, we will have different hours at the clinic (see above!), which means that we won’t be open all day every day anymore. Still open every day, though! Pick up a new printed schedule to hang on your fridge next time you’re in the clinic — we have them ready at the desk.

$5 off all TACO T-shirts! Get one for yourself or all of your friends – only $15, all styles, while supplies last.

Remember Sarah Ashford at the front desk? She needs our help & Ellen has launched a medical gofundme for her. Please read and consider donating to her cause.
