Community Acupuncture Project of West Sea: New WSB sponsor

Today we’re welcoming one of our newest WSB sponsors, and per WSB tradition, here’s what the Community Acupuncture Project of West Sea would like you to know about who they are and what they do:

West Seattle finally has our very own full-time community acupuncture clinic. The Community Acupuncture Project of West Sea is now open 7 days a week, in the heart of the Junction. Acupuncture is now affordable in our neighborhood, every day, with no need to cross the bridge! Sonja Sivesind, a licensed acupuncturist and owner of the Project, is a Westwood resident who opened this second location after two years of running the Community Acupuncture Project of Columbia City. Sonja is also an acupuncturist at a methadone clinic downtown and loves offering acupuncture to so many members of the community. She is thrilled to be providing acupuncture to her neighbors and fellow West Seattleites while also offering jobs to Seattle acupuncturists.

The Community Acupuncture Project of West Sea, which opened for business on June 12, joins the ranks of 9 other community acupuncture clinics in Seattle and more than 200 sliding-scale clinics nationwide. “Community acupuncture surprises people. It is powerful to be treated with others and feel healing energy radiating off one another. Because acupuncture is most effective as a series of treatments, our sliding scale ($15-40) allows people to come in often and really get better,” explains Sivesind. “Patients come in for everything from back pain and allergies to insomnia and anxiety,” says Sivesind. “Most people feel more relaxed when they leave our clinic and are pleased with the calmness they feel as they re-emerge into their daily lives.” The Community Acupuncture Project of West Sea is located at 4545 44th Ave SW @ Alaska. You can reach us at 206.933.7891. To learn more about community acupuncture, check out:

    So far, my wife, my son, my mom visiting from out of town and myself have all been to the Columbia City clinic. It’s such a great place to have in the neighborhood and the folks running it are truly special.

    I was treated for over a year at CAP Columbia City and would still be going were it not for the leveling of the South Park Bridge. We are truly lucky to have this kind of treatment option in West Seattle. The sliding scale builds social and economic equity into their pay scale just as it is part of the healing modality. I love the practitioners here and really just cannot recommend them enough. I cannot wait to get back to my regular weekly or twice weekly visits.

    I’ve been going to see Sonja and her colleagues in Columbia City for over a year now and I highly recommend them. I’m thrilled they’re now right in the junction!! The sliding scale really makes it affordable and the new space is very peaceful and comfortable!

    I’ve been going to the West Seattle office every two weeks since it opened, love the space, the idea, the treatment and the practitioners. I highly recommend visits for whatever ails you.

    I love CAPCC and love the concept of accessible, affordable acupuncture for the community. I’ve been going for years and always find the practitioners to be warm, knowledgeable and effective. Great hours too. I’m grateful to have the clinic so close to my home, and am very happy so see them growing!
