(plus a $10 consultation and paperwork fee added to your initial visit).

Davis Community Acupuncture Clinic (DCAC) is a great way to be able to take care of yourself - physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially. Acupuncture treatments are conducted in one large room (since points used are typically below the knees and elbows, no disrobing is required). There is an additional healing quality to the group dynamic - like the difference between group meditation and meditating alone. Everyone gets more out of it. There is a $20-$40 sliding scale that is "pay what you choose" (plus a $10 consultation and paperwork fee added to your initial visit). It's easy to bring a friend and get treated at the same time.


DCAC was founded by Itay Neta, L.Ac. Itay (pronounced like eat-Thai) Neta, LAc holds Master's degrees from both the New England School of Acupuncture and the Acupuncture & Integrative Medical College, Berkeley.

Come in and let me prove it to you! —itayneta

2008-06-12 02:16:28   What kind of treatment do you offer for detox, withdrawal, and general drug addiction therapy? Can you document any successes you have had in the past? —Jbmx

2008-08-29 23:33:39   As far as detox, withdrawal, and drug addiction are concerned, the treatment help reduce cravings, stabilize mood, and help the body process the accumulation of toxins that have been built up over time. While the same set of points has been used successfully to treat opiate and other hard drug addiction, my primary experience is with smoking cessation. The primary reason for this is that other drugs are usually treated in the context of a rehab clinic where acupuncture is just one part of the treatment. I am hoping to team up with such a facility in the near future.

Smokers getting acupuncture tend to find less satisfaction from the cigarettes and often say, "They don't taste the same." This reaction is the beginning of them breaking the cycle. Any addiction is a complicated process that involves many lifestyle and psychological changes. Acupuncture can help mitigate the withdrawal symptoms and cravings while providing a gentle calming effect in a very stressful time. —itayneta

2008-12-08 12:01:02   Can acupuncture effectively treat an upper eyelid twitch? I have had this twitch for going on 9 months now, and I have tried everything else!! —eewalk

2009-04-05 23:33:48   Sorry, just noticed the eye twitch post. Though I have had success with solving this in the past, every situation is different and everyone responds differently. —itayneta

2009-06-10 18:27:03   Thank goodness for Itay and the DCAC. We are *so* lucky to have so knowledgeable and attuned an acupuncturist in this community, and in a completely affordable community clinic to boot. Itay's treatments have done wonder for a variety of physical aches and pains, digestive issues, and other system imbalances I've had in the last year, and everyone I know who's ever been to see him has had the same amazing response to his treatments. He is exceedingly generous with his time, attention, and energy. The synergistic effect of being in a room with other patients during treatments is incomparable. I can't stop recommending the DCAC to everyone around me... —calvin2

2010-05-05 11:27:14   I came here during the week of my due date and absolutely loved it. I wish that I would have come throughout my entire pregnancy because it would have helped with the many aches and pains of pregnancy. I always felt completely relaxed when leaving here - there is not another method I have experienced to reach this state of extra-relaxation. I will definitely go back. —Cynthianh

2010-06-07 09:21:48   What is the problem with some pain if that's going help you be healthier? I'm not saying that Itay's acupunture is, or not, painless; I am trying to say that a bit of pain isn't going to kill anybody, and there are worse things than a stinging needle, as for example open heart surgeries, injections, amputations and dental treatments. A stinging needle should not stop anyone from trying this wonderful healing art. Beats being sick. —Alex.

2010-09-23 06:23:42   I'm curious how successful acupuncture can be for vertigo symptoms? Specifically, I have Meniere's disease symptoms. Terribly frustrating and sometimes debilitating. Had surgery in Feb to correct (endolymphatic shunt) which helped, but symptoms have returned. —ZachSmith

2010-10-23 10:00:32   I found this place while jogging on Covell Blv. a few months ago, when I had long given it up looking for affordable acupuncture in Davis. I am glad I have found it. The prices are just right, the place is clean and quiet, and Itay does a great job. The presence of other people in the treatment room does not bother me, though I find it a bit difficult having to whisper when I speak with the practitioner. But this is not a big deal when weighted against all the benefits of the treatment. I truly encourage everyone to come by and see if acupuncture works for them. I don’t think there is any other way to know. Randomized trials and statistics on randomized trials of acupuncture do not address one’s individual needs and potentials. And it doesn’t “hurt”, come on! —AlessandraRung

2010-12-18 23:06:52   I have been coming here for a couple months for joint pain and have been very impressed with the experience. I have noticed a significant reduction in pain and Itay is a very compassionate and caring person. He cares deeply for his patiens and will spend lots of time talking to you and offering suggestions that will help you outside of his clinic. I recommend him highly and encourage everyone to try this...you will not be disappointed! —KMeo

2011-02-10 09:47:27   Does this sort of treatment work for nerve pain? Specifically, meralgia paresthetica. My doctor told me it wouldn't, but I'm still curious to see if it would. —ChristyMarsden

2011-11-16 14:08:58   I went in for a treatment with Laura a few days back and had a great experience. Highly recommended! —Jhkochan
