Franchise Opportunities

ACA provides comprehensive resources for TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) practitioners. We have products, services, and information on the latest research and technical knowledge in acupuncture. Learn about ACA’s business model and franchise opportunities.

The over $4 billion US acupuncture market offers a great opportunity with over 10% annual growth rates and the continuing flow of new patients interested in the benefits of acupuncture.

With an annual healthcare spend of $2.2 trillion, the US market can support significant growth opportunities for complementary medical care services, including acupuncture. Currently, over $200 billion is spent on out-of-pocket care expenses. The Affordable Care Act alone introduces nearly 57 million potential new acupuncture patients to the US market through expanded insurance coverage including acupuncture.

Perhaps the best way to start a new practice or bolster an existing one is to join ACA either as a franchise or through the business services program.

New Practitioners often face a multi-year business start-up phase that can be challenging on one’s own. Over 50% of US acupuncturists have been practicing for less than 10 years. Newly licensed graduates are entering the market in growing numbers every year.

ACA offers a franchise solution that addresses medical regulations on a state-by-state level. The ACA program emphasizes proven approaches for commercial success.

New Customers can benefit from the comfort and security of knowing ACA is a proven brand of clinical practices with founding doctors of the highest educational standards. Procedure standards are shared within the practice to allow each clinic to fully consider the best approaches for a given condition.

Acupuncture Needles

ACA and Hwato, China’s premier acupuncture needle company, have collaborated to develop a superior acupuncture needle for importation and distribution in the US. Established 125 years ago, Hwato is China’s oldest, largest and most respected manufacturer of acupuncture devices. Manufacturing takes place at the Suzhou Medical Appliance Factory which has international certification such as the TGA of Australia, FDA of the USA, TUV Certificate of Germany, and ISO accreditation.

ACA’s stainless steel “High Efficacy” needle is made with the highest quality materials and state-of-the-art technology. With a brass wire handle, our needle is easy to grip and visually appealing. The needle is designed for the highest level of efficacy and has excellent insertion and gliding properties. It is flexible for easy use and has a smooth surface quality, coated with silicone oil.

In addition to the “High Efficacy” needle, ACA will also offer a “High Comfort” brand needle. These stainless steel flat head needles will be of Hwato-guaranteed high quality but offered at an affordable price. Our goal is to create a high global standard for needle quality by offering these needles at reasonable rates.
