Boise, ID (PRWEB) July 6, 2010
Complementary and alternative medicine therapies, including acupuncture, continue to increase in popularity within the United States. In fact, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), about 4 in 10 adults in the United States use some form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). The increasing popularity of these therapies has allowed some healthcare providers to buck the trend during the recent economic downturn.
One such small business, Acupuncture West, a Boise, Idaho acupuncture clinic, recently relocated to a larger office and more convenient location within the Boise medical community. Still serving the Boise metropolitan area, the acupuncture clinic is now located in very close proximity to St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center and the surrounding medical community. The new office includes a total of 4 licensed acupuncturists and 2 massage therapists working collaboratively to help patients get and stay healthy.
The acupuncture clinic was outgrowing its previous office space when the business owners started looking for an opportunity to continue growing in a larger space. While searching for new office space, they also met with other CAM healthcare providers to explore the possibility of working more collaboratively and sharing office space. In short order, they found other acupuncturists and massage therapists also looking to grow, and discovered a great office location right near one of the major medical centers in Boise.
“With regard to our recent move, many things fell into place for us,” said Peter Games, co-owner of the busy acupuncture center. “This new location allows us to better serve the needs of our growing patient population while providing us a better opportunity to become integrated into the Boise medical community.”
Still getting settled in their new location, the business owners seem very excited about the future. “First and foremost, we want to help our patients get and stay healthier,” explained Games. “Yet, it’s especially gratifying when we can also cultivate our business and facilitate its growth and development into an important part of the Boise healthcare community.”
