POCA Tech Student clinic!

We are pleased to announce that ACA has been approved as an off-site student clinic for Oregon-based POCA Technical Institute!  Susie Leahy has completed her first year at POCA Tech, and shadowed Steve at ACA earlier this year. She has started her student clinic shifts at the school in Oregon and has given over 100 treatments. She is a Rhode Island resident and will be doing some of her student clinic shifts under Steve’s supervision here at ACA! 


  • Student clinic with Susie is on Tuesdays starting August 30, 2022.  Susie will also be giving treatments on a few Saturdays, October 1 and October 22, future dates TBD. 


  • Treatments during the student clinic on Tuesdays and Saturdays will be priced at $20-$30. There will be occasional Tuesdays when Susie will be back in OR taking classes at POCA Tech - Steve will work those shifts and the student clinic rate will still be honored. 


  • Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays with Steve will still be priced at the usual $30-50.


  • Patients who have 5-treatment cards may use them at any time, including Susie’s student clinic shifts.

COVID Update: May 17, 2021

In light of Governor Baker's announcement today regarding the lifting of mask requirements in certain settings in Massachusetts, we wanted to take an opportunity to address any questions or concerns that our patients might have.
The State, as well as the CDC, both require that masks, for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals, continue to be worn in health care settings. As we are health care providers, and have a group treatment room, we will continue to require masks at ACA for all patients, regardless of vaccination status, beyond May 29. We do not yet have a date as to when this policy will change. We encourage all of our patients age 12 and over to get vaccinated against COVID19, for their own safety, as well as the safety of the larger community. For our patients who are vaccinated, we are happy to learn of your status, but we will not require any written documentation. In the interest of fairness, our rules and requirements will apply to all, regardless of vaccination status, to protect our most vulnerable patients. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued patronage and cooperation. We would not still be here without you. Thank you.
