Desert Winds is a community acupuncture clinic located on Albuquerque’s Westside.  Our mission is to provide high-quality, affordable acupuncture in a peaceful and supportive setting to the people of Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Corrales, and surrounding areas. We offer individualized treatments in a quiet, open space.  You decide what you are able to afford, on a sliding scale of $15-$40, with a one-time $10 first visit fee.  We want to make it possible for you to come as often as you need or would like to, in order to feel better and stay healthy.

In Asia, acupuncture has traditionally been practiced in a group, rather than an individual, setting.  Desert Winds is part of a growing movement of more than 200 acupuncture clinics around the country that are returning to this tradition of community-centered practice.  Because an acupuncturist can see multiple clients per hour, costs are significantly reduced.  Our mission is to create a safe and comfortable environment for all members of our community.  We welcome all people, regardless of sex, race, national origin, education or income level, age, ability, marital status, religion, size, sexual orientation, gender identity, HIV status, or political affiliation.  Your level of care will never be based on any of these factors.
