Community support for our little “Nap Shack”:
Since we opened our doors in June 2008, our goal has been to provide high quality health care in the form of acupuncture at a rate that is accessible to as many people as possible. That, of course, has not changed. However, with the insanity of skyrocketing rents in San Francisco this is becoming increasingly difficult. In March of this year we took the plunge and signed another 3 year lease with an increase to our rent. So, the good news is that we plan to be here for the near future! However, since our operations costs have gone up, in order to be a sustainable business that can pay our practitioners a living wage and also not raise our fees, we need more patients. We need our shifts full and the clinic bustling!
We are asking for your support to help make this happen. Many of you have spread the word about the clinic and we have grown so much because of your wonderful word of mouth. That’s the best way for clinics like ours to expand, a personal recommendation from a trusted source. So, if you have had a good experience with us and want to help keep us in the neighborhood please keep telling other folks about us.
Other ways to help spread the word:
-If you know of health clinics that would be a good referral source for us, bring in our cards and brochures to them. Talk to the staff about us.
-Post our cards and brochures in coffee shops or on other neighborhood community boards.
-If you have benefited from our services, share your experience of acupuncture and the clinic with others.
-Like us on Facebook, like our posts on Facebook, talk about us on Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest and Instagram.
What we are working on:
- Increasing clinic visibility with:
~New front signage coming soon!
~New front window design
- To get busy enough to pay our practitioners a more sustainable wage
- To get enough steady increase in business to allow us to increase our hours, in turn creating more access to acupuncture and creating new jobs for practitioners
We want nothing more than to stay here on 24th St and continue to provide quality acupuncture care at affordable rates to the Lower 24th Street Corridor and surrounding neighborhoods. We appreciate all of you and are grateful to have been able to be of service to so many wonderful folks over the years. We love our little “Nap Shack” clinic and our community! Help us stay! Long live the “ Nap Shack!”
Thank you so much.
