Elise Rivers wins Best of the BID Award!
November 2015


This is an annual award acknowledging a person who has contributed the most to the Mt. Airy Business Improvement District (BID) efforts to make Germantown Ave more livable.

 

“Nobody does more than Elise to beautify our Avenue. She has spearheaded projects to add 100 hanging baskets and dozens of planters to the Avenue, and rallied her immediate neighbors on the 67-6800 blocks of Germantown Avenue to win the City Gardens contest in 2012.  Elise’s other contributions to the BID and business district include improved parking and holiday decorations, and her help selecting the last 3 Executive Directors of the BID was immeasurable.”

All of us at Community Acupuncture of Mt. Airy are excited to welcome you to become part of our healing center!

Take a virtual tour of present day CAMA or take a trip down memory lane to see before and after pictures of how we converted the Hamilton Savings and Loan into a healing center.


Elise Rivers and her growing staff of acupuncturists, herbologists, fertility specialists and healers were the first to bring this style of cost-efficient ($30-$45) acupuncture to Philadelphia (see newspaper clipping) when we were a walk-in clinic way back in January 2005. We were also  featured in the Chestnut Hill Local .

 


We are committed to providing affordable healthcare that eliminates both the broken health care system's red tape and the insurance companies' inappropriate authority over your care. We want you to have the choice of an affordable, compassionate, effective, preventative, acute and chronic ailment care alternative; including: acupuncture, herbs and self-care education. We are an alternative for those who are insured, underinsured or not insured.
