How to use the special: when you come in for your treatment, just let us know you’re using the July special.

Acupuncture Outdoors in Summer 2022

Boston Acupuncture Project still offers Bubble Block appointments at the clinic during our regular clinic hours.

What is a “Bubble Block”?

Bubble Blocks reserve the clinic for one full hour, for up to 4 people. (Or just for yourself!)

The name comes from earlier in the pandemic, when many people were only interacting with others in their “bubble.”

Bubble Blocks cost $100 minimum – add $10 for each new (first-time) patient. Anyone new should fill out health history and consent forms before you arrive. 24 hours’ notice is required to cancel or reschedule a Bubble Block.

Outdoor Appointments

This summer, Bubble Blocks head outdoors – to your back yard!

Interested in hosting a Bubble Block at your outdoor location?

Call or text us at 617-506-3868 or fill out the Outdoor Acupuncture Appointment Request Form online (click here).

Updated Mask Requirements

As NPR put it: “With omicron, you need a mask that means business.” 

If you come in with a cloth mask, we will now ask you to put on a surgical mask. (Surgical under cloth is OK.)

Acceptable Masks:

  • 3-ply surgical
  • KN95
  • KF94
  • N95 (no valves)

Got only cloth masks? Please look into getting a better mask!

Watch out for fakes – click here for advice about that from the CDC.

We are doing this to keep you as safe as possible while providing affordable, effective community acupuncture!

Thank you for your participation.

December 2021 Special: 20% off a Return Visit* when you Bring Your Own Blanket

We love keeping people cozy when they’re here for acupuncture! So help us help you by bringing your own blankets.

When you bring your own blankets in December 2021, you can pay just $20 for a treatment* (add $10 for first visits).

What should I actually bring?

We recommend packing a clean, reusable shopping bag with a light fleece throw blanket (or two, or three). You can also add a large towel or small pillow which goes on your lap to hold the blanket above any pins that might be placed in your lower legs.

(If you don’t know, that is how we keep people cozy here: personalized blanket forts.)

Why should I bring my own blanket?

We don’t want to get rid of our blankets – but the time and cost of doing laundry, with pandemic precautions, in the winter, may become unsustainable. Please help us out by bringing your own.
