Our friends at 4 Corners Yoga + Wellness are offering $20 off a full-priced massage of 60+ minutes, when you come in for an acupuncture treatment at Boston Acupuncture Project! This offer is now extended through Feb. 28, 2021.
Massage & acupuncture work so well together. Why?
Even one acupuncture treatment may start to reduce an area of radiating or referring pain, so a massage therapist can spend more time focusing on where the pain is really coming from.
Getting acupuncture before massage can help reduce your pain and get you into relaxation mode, so that your massage therapist can spend more time on the therapeutic part of the massage – or you can just enjoy it more!
Getting acupuncture after a massage can help the results of the massage “stick” better – your muscles can stay more relaxed, your range of motion improved, etc. for much longer when these two are combined.
So book your appointment at Boston Acupuncture Project today – use our online scheduler (just click here) or call or text 617-506-3868 if you don’t see a time that works for you. Please remember that NEW patients need a brief tele-health consultation before a first in-person visit!
Give your loved ones the gifts of wellness, healing, and relaxation with a gift certificate to Boston Acupuncture Project. You can directly purchase online – anything in our online store that says Gift, and any Special Offer Package, will have a gift certificate you can print out yourself.

We’re celebrating the second anniversary of our Hyde Park community acupuncture clinic with a day of FREE acupuncture treatments on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 28, 2020! Appointments (and masks) required. First treatment begins at 10:00am, last treatment begins at 2:15pm, and doors close at 3:00pm. Click here to save your spot!
We will also kick off our Readiness Raffle, raising money to cover the costs of providing outdoor acupuncture this coming Spring.
Community acupuncture clinics (like us here at Boston Acupuncture Project!) work to keep care accessible, and we rely on many people paying a reasonable amount for every treatment to cover our expenses. That’s why we count on you to tell people in your life about Boston Acupuncture Project and how they should come here for acupuncture!
Part of being accessible means staying open. To do that right now, we have to raise prices. Our new sliding scale, starting Monday, November 16, will be $25 – $55 for return visits, plus a $10 intake fee for first visits only.
If this puts acupuncture out of your reach, please talk to your acupuncturist – we can almost always work something out.
For the clinic’s health, Boston Acupuncture Project needs around 20 people a week to pay $25, 10 people a week to pay $35, and 5 people a week to pay $45. Right now (as of October 2020) we are averaging about 22 treatments per week, with an average payment of about $22 per treatment.
Overall, we need to increase the number of people getting acupuncture here, and also the average payment per treatment, so that the clinic can stick around for years to come.
We are so excited to get back to the clinic! Starting June 15, 2020 you can visit Boston Acupuncture Project for community acupuncture, in person. Visits are by appointment only, so please schedule online or call us at 617-506-3868 to book a time.
Masks: bring one! Everyone in the clinic must wear a mask at all times, covering mouth AND nose. Valve-type masks do not count.
Screening: check your reminder email for questions. Please stay home if you feel sick!
New Patient Intakes (a.k.a. most of the talking parts of a First Visit) will be via tele-health.
Waiting: please wait outside the clinic until your appointment time. If you need to come in early to use the restroom, please wait in the waiting room until we let you know the restroom is available.
Physical distancing: one person at a time, please – one helper is OK if needed, just let us know before you come in.
Hand hygiene: use hand sanitizer when you enter, and after handling cash.
Payment: pre-pay online when you can! Cash (exact change only) in the payment box is great too. HSA/FSA cards are accepted in the clinic, not online.
BYOB (Bring Your Own Blanket): we’re going to have a LOT more laundry to do, so if you can bring a clean blanket with you, go for it.
No More Self-Serve: water and ear plugs available upon request, but please step outside if you need to pull your mask down.
It’s still going to be great! We realize that there are a lot of changes. The good news is that our mission to provide a peaceful healing place for everyone remains the same. We are looking forward to seeing you again soon!
With an acu-pressure consultation we will discuss your health concerns and guide you through using specific acu-pressure points to support your health.
For herbal medicine consultations, we will discuss your health concerns, and then prescribe herbal remedies based on Traditional Chinese Medicine pattern diagnosis. Herbal remedies will be delivered directly from one of our suppliers to your home. Payment for herbal remedies is in addition to the cost of the consultation, but we try to keep everything as affordable as possible.
All tele-health appointments can be made online, but you can also call for additional times. Thank you for participating in community acupuncture!
We are offering our first ever ONLINE CLASS this Thursday, April 2nd: Acu-Pressure for Headaches and Eye Strain, taught by Oren “Ren” Pilinger, Licensed Acupuncturist.
Maybe you are on the computer a LOT more these days. Or maybe you have used acupuncture to manage headaches for a long time, and are looking for other helpful ideas. This class should have something for everyone: Ren plans to tailor the class content to who shows up, and what you want to learn about this topic!
Aside from acupuncture, Ren is licensed to administer Chinese herbal medicine. This approach to herbal remedies uses the same ideas of Traditional Chinese Medicine as acupuncture treatments, but with plants instead of points.
