Our Story


West Philly Community Acupuncture opened on February 25th, 2014.  Our mission is to provide acupuncture to as many people as possible at affordable rates in a cozy community setting.

Our Acupuncturists

Bec Jimenez, L.Ac.

Bec Jimenez, L.Ac.

We are so excited to welcome Bec Jimenez to WPCA!!  Bec is a recent graduate of the Won Institute in Glenside, PA, where she completed a 3-year Master of Acupuncture degree program.  She was introduced to acupuncture when it helped her kick an 8-year nicotine addiction and she was able to experience firsthand the ability of this traditional health care to succeed where conventional methods had failed.  

Bec has extensive training in treating acute and chronic pain, and loves working with women’s health-related issues including hormonal and menstrual imbalance, fertility and prenatal care.

She is also a fluent Spanish speaker, and we’re excited that she’ll create access to acupuncture to our neighbors who feel more comfortable communicating about their healthcare needs in their primary language!  Bec is now the acupuncturist during the Wednesday and Saturday shifts.


Sarah Lefkowich, L.Ac.

Sarah Lefkowich, L.Ac.

Sarah is the founder of WPCA.  She received her master’s degree in acupuncture from the Won Institute of Graduate Studies in 2010.  She has been working in community acupuncture ever since.  Sarah loves the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA) and is an avid volunteer and elected member of the Board of Directors.  Sarah is the acupuncturist during the Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday shifts.

 


If you are interested in being a punk (acu-punk-turist, get it?) at WPCA, please contact us.  We would love to be open more!  No seriously, we would love to be open like all the time.  Also – go here AND here first. Thanks!
