Hi everyone, Ren here with a PSA about acupuncture for seasonal and environmental allergies.
Personally, I used to be one of those people who could not go anywhere without a packet of tissues. Since I was a kid, my eyes would swell up and my nose would be stuffy at the slightest environmental allergen. It wasn’t until I started getting regular acupuncture in my twenties that I realized life could be different for me!
If you’re interested in having a better Spring (or Autumn) this year, try getting a series of acupuncture treatments in the season leading up to your worst allergic time.
Based on your exact symptom picture, your acupuncturist will recommend a treatment plan for you. Regular acupuncture treatment really can make a huge difference. Acupuncture also works great alongside other treatments, so it’s not like you need to give up your allergy meds cold turkey or anything.
But don’t take my word for it. Here are a few studies showing acupuncture’s effectiveness for allergic rhinitis (basically, seasonal and environmental allergies):
Community acupuncture would not exist without you, and your participation.
Boston Acupuncture Project works to make acupuncture more affordable and accessible, so we can make a difference in people’s lives! But we need your help. The way we keep our prices low is by giving a LOT of treatments.
Telling others about Boston Acupuncture Project is the #1 most helpful thing you can do to help us stay open. (After making sure you get enough acupuncture yourself, of course.)
Here are a few other things you can do to help:
Tell your other health care providers how acupuncture is making a difference for you. (We want them to send more patients here.)
Bring your own blanket(s) to your treatment to help us save on laundry time and money.
Pay for your treatments with cash, if you have the means.
Throw in a few extra dollars if you pay with a credit card. (Every credit card payment sends a slice of that money to the processing company.)
Slide up the scale – but only if you’re able to do this and still get enough treatments to feel better. If you’re paying online, consider buying yourself “gift certificates” of $30 or $40 per treatment.
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.
