Our Charitable Activities

Laughing Tao Acupuncture is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization. Our wish is to be able to provide holistic care and education to our surrounding communities.

Pay It Forward Fund

Pay It Forward makes it possible for us to partner with local organizations and provide acupuncture free of cost to underserved members of our community, including veterans, amputees, victims of domestic violence, and others. 10% of every acupuncture appointment is funneled into this fund. 100% of the donations and missed appointment fees we receive are also funneled back into our Pay It Forward program. 

Through Pay It Forward, in 2023 we have been able to participate in three events open to the community and provide free acupuncture services for those in attendance. We have four more of these community service events scheduled for 2023 - more details coming soon!

Healing Arts Collective

The Healing Arts Collective is a national database of holistic health providers who offer their services on a sliding fee scale. We have partnered with the Healing Arts Collective to provide reduced rate treatments for those experiencing financial hardship.

After paying a one-time $30 fee to the Healing Arts Collective, the client will be able to peruse the national database of providers. To become a Healing Arts Collective client and receive reduced rate acupuncture treatments with Laughing Tao, please visit their website at, sign up, and search for us. Request an appointment through the Healing Arts Collective website and we will receive an email notification letting us know to provide you with reduced rate treatments.

Laughing Tao is a Teaching Wellness Center

We have partnered with the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine to host interns in our clinic. Before sitting for board exams, acupuncture students need hundreds of hours of clinic time under supervision. We fully vet every intern to ensure their values for patient care meet our standards, and that they are far enough into their needling training to provide a great experience. If you are uncomfortable with an intern sitting in on your treatment, please let us know.

Please contact Genevieve and Glenn at to arrange a group session for your organization or to donate.
