About Us.

What is Community Acupuncture

Community Acupuncture is a movement to provide effective and affordable acupuncture to the broadest range of individuals. Rather than individual rooms, acupuncture takes place in a group setting.  We have recliners and massage tables for our patients.

Acupuncture treatments at Persimmon Community Acupuncture is usually limited to the arms, legs, face, ear and head. The wonderful thing about acupuncture is that there are endless variations and combinations of points that can be used to help heal any part of the body. Distal points are often used which mean we can use needles in your hands or feet to treat your back. So, we can treat your back pain without actually putting needles in your back.

At Persimmon Community Acupuncture, our treatment room can seat up to eleven (11) individuals; seven (7) recliners and four(4) massage tables. After meeting individually with the acupuncturist in the reception area, acupuncture is provided in the community treatment room.

Chinese medicinal herbs (mostly in pill form); nutritional supplements: prices vary

Cupping: Additional $20

“Most people find that they easily become accustomed to this style of treatment, and even come to prefer it. Healing happens from within. In that sense, you can be anywhere and begin the healing process. Being in a room of people sharing a healing intention can facilitate your own personal healing.” -Berkeley Community Acupuncture Clinic

“My goal is to make acupuncture accessible for everyone. Over the years in my private practice, I have been extremely fortunate to treat children and adults of all ages, ethnicities, and income levels. I’ve really seen how many people have benefited from acupuncture, and unfortunately, also how many people are excluded or cannot continue with their regular treatments due to cost. Currently, medical insurance companies are not helping the situation. They are consistently raising fees for members while constantly changing amounts of coverage, medical requirements, and copays. All these factors led me to open a Community Acupuncture Clinic here in Stockton.”

Yonie Young is a California licensed acupuncturist and herbalist (L.Ac.). She obtained a Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine degree from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York City (2006). She has a clinical background which includes training and practice in both Chinese as well as Japanese styles of acupuncture, externships at the St. Vincent’s Comprehensive Cancer Center, and at the Women’s Disabilities Clinic in New York. She also had the opportunity to study at the Wang Ju Yi Center for Clinical Channel Theory Research in Beijing, China. She received her certification from the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (2011).

Yonie has a bachelor’s degree in Nutritional Science from UC Berkeley (2001). She lives in Stockton with her husband, son, and daughter. Yonie enjoys exercise, practicing yoga, tennis, traveling, and spending time with her family.

Shoanie holds degrees from the Eastman School of Music (Bachelor of Music), and University of Southern California (Master of Music). On the path to becoming a nurse practitioner at Johns Hopkins University, she decided instead to pursue Chinese Medicine. With the support and encouragement of her family, Shoanie graduated from Chinese Culture and Health Sciences with a Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and is a California licensed acupuncturist and herbalist (L.Ac.). She is (still) very excited and grateful to be a part of Persimmon Community Acupuncture.

She lives in Sacramento with her husband (another acupuncturist!) and two baby boys. She loves dog watching, hiking, camping, the Bar Method, exploring farmers markets, playing the violin, and dreaming of her next scuba diving trip.
