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.

Boston Acupuncture Project announces our first-ever class series, bringing QiGong and TaiChi (aka Taiji) taught by instructor Paula Reardon-Webster to Hyde Park. This 6-week series is appropriate for both new and experienced practitioners. Classes are Thursday evenings, 6:00-7:00pm, beginning September 19, 2019 at Boston Acupuncture Project’s Hyde Park location (74 Fairmount Ave).
QiGong and TaiJi cultivate health, strength, and energy
Qigong integrates physical postures, breathing techniques, meditation and focused intentions, also incorporating Taiji form (Chen Style) movement in this evidence-based program. These static & moving postures strengthen the lower body, improve functional balance, and provide many other holistic benefits.
Paula Reardon-Webster is an Evidence Based Qigong & Taiji Instructor, T.A. for the Center for Taiji Studies, M.A. Mindfulness Studies Lesley University, RYT200 yoga and Yin Yoga instructor. For more about Paula’s offerings and background, please visit her website: https://www.thenowpoint.com/

Also known as International Workers Day, May Day is acknowledged worldwide as a commemoration of the social and economic achievements of the international labor movement. POCA Community Acupuncture clinics like Boston Acupuncture Project are social businesses dedicated to affordable healthcare.
UPDATE, 4/30/19: it is likely that no more appointments are available when you click the link. You can still stop by the day of, to see if we can squeeze you in – just in case someone does not show up to claim their spot. But we can’t guarantee this will happen. Thank you for your interest and understanding!
Walk-ins are always welcome as long as there is space – just wait for someone to greet you before going in past the waiting area.
Remember that acupuncture appointments through the end of May are 25% off for all POCA members. Find out more and join POCA at pocacoop.com/join-page
The People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA) is a multi-stakeholder cooperative working to make acupuncture available to as many people as possible. POCA members are acupuncturists, clinics, and – the largest membership group – patients/community members!
POCA members believe everybody should have access to the many benefits of community acupuncture. For that to happen, we need more acuPUNCturists (a.k.a. ‘punks’) in more places! That means a community acupuncture clinic in every town, everywhere.
Boston Acupuncture Project, a clinic member of POCA, regularly provides acupuncture treatment for everybody on a sliding scale of $20-$40. With over 150 Community Acupuncture clinics across North America, thousands of individuals are expected to receive free services on May 1st.
In May, Boston Acupuncture Project participates in POCA’s Membership Drive. We wish everybody, everywhere who had an ache or a pain had a local acupuncture clinic to turn to, so we’re making that happen – and you can join us. This year’s theme is “More Punks in More Places”.
A POCA membership is an opportunity for you to help others receive care, while also benefiting yourself. By paying once-a-year dues on a sliding scale from $25-$100, you directly support the creation of new community acupuncture clinics, and the graduation of more acu-punks from POCA Tech, so more people can get more acupuncture.
Just like our acupuncture treatments, POCA membership is the same no matter what you pay on the $25-$100 sliding scale. We appreciate any contribution you can make. To sign up for a membership go to: https://www.pocacoop.com/join-page
A POCA membership can pay for itself in a few treatments, because perks include a free treatment on your birthday, 3 “free first treatment” coupons to share with loved ones, and having all new patient paperwork fees waived at any POCA Clinic (click for a map)!
Our new patient paperwork fee of $10 is always waived for all POCA members, but in May 2019, POCA members get 25% off all month long. That means you can pay just $15 for any acupuncture visitwhen you show your POCA membership card.
As POCA members we are creating jobs, creating community, and creating a healthier future for everyone. We hope you will join us. If you have any questions please check out POCA’s mission and vision at https://www.pocacoop.com/our-mission-and-vision, or ask your acupuncturist how much POCA means to them!
