BAP at Open Streets Boston – Hyde Park

Free acupuncture! Details TBA. From the main website:

Open Streets Boston events help people experience streets as public spaces where communities thrive. City streets transform into vibrant, pedestrian-friendly boulevards where people can dream, play, and explore.

During these free, family-friendly events, Open Streets Boston will temporarily close major thoroughfares to car traffic. This opens them to people biking, walking, rolling, and connecting with neighbors and local businesses.

Special Offer for New Sustainers

At BAP, we’re on a mission to keep our community healthy and thriving. Our sustainers help make our work possible with their monthly donations. Here’s why our sustainers are so important to us! To give right now, just click here. Don’t forget to select the monthly donation option!

Why Sustainers?

Planned monthly donations are vital to the well-being of BAP, for so many reasons! They allow us to plan our budget, ride out bumps in the road, and show potential funders how much our community values our work.

Help Us Root

Monthly gifts let our neighbors who value BAP commit to us, and in turn let us commit to our neighborhood. As the forces of displacement continue to hit Boston hard, monthly donations let us budget and plan to pay our rent and our staff, even when so much about our city is in flux. They let us plan to keep being here to keep you healthy.

Help Us Live

Monthly donations allow us to ride out the inevitable bumps in the road–a month full of blizzards, or the illness of a staff member. This means that rather than scrambling to stay afloat when a problem hits, we can keep focusing on giving the care that you, and the rest of our community, count on.

Help Us Grow

When we have monthly donors, it helps us get grants to build new programs, try new things, and make a more comfortable space for your community acupuncture. Foundations and granters see our support from the community, and are more likely to give us additional money to continue the work that our donors clearly value. This could mean that we can provide new forms of care for you, or that we can reach more of our neighbors with additional programming.

Feeling the Love

And of course, the less practical reason–if you donate monthly, that means that every month we get to see your name come through with your donation, and feel your love of BAP–which keeps us going and gives us joy!

Sustainers Circle

By donating $7 or more per month, you can join our Sustainers Circle. This gives you first dibs on all new products and classes at BAP, a quarterly newsletter about our community outreach, and an annual Q&A with BAP’s lead acupuncturist. You’ll also get a free Ear Seeds DIY Kit if you become a monthly sustainer at ANY amount by 12/21/2023!

Yes, we’re still masking inside the clinic.

Today, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts ended the mask requirement for healthcare facilities. Clinics such as Boston Acupuncture Project can choose to retain their own mask requirements and we have decided to do so.

Throughout the pandemic, our highest priority has been to keep staff and patients safe inside the clinic. Masking is a proven prevention tool in reducing the transmission of COVID-19. We want to protect all of our patients including but not limited to our most vulnerable—for example, people with respiratory conditions, autoimmune disorders, those who are receiving treatment for cancer including chemotherapy and our pregnant patients.

Masks must be N95, KN95, KF94 or a surgical mask. No exceptions. We thank you in advance for following our policy. (Click here for the full list of our COVID-19 policies.)

We will no longer be asking symptom screening questions before your visits – however, we still ask that you reschedule or cancel your appointment if you are feeling sick. We also ask that you reschedule or cancel if you are in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19. You will never be charged for a late cancel or reschedule due to illness or exposure. Thank you for participating in community acupuncture!

Acu-pressure and Acupuncture for Well-Being

Acupuncture has been used by humans for thousands of years, with traditions throughout East Asia presenting different schools of thought on how the body works. Learn about how ancient Daoist observations of nature are still relevant to us today, including acu-pressure points you can use on yourself at home.

Oren “Ren” Pilinger is a graduate of The New England School of Acupuncture at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, state licensed, and board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). After practicing at community acupuncture clinics all over Massachusetts, he co-founded Boston Acupuncture Project, which opened in Hyde Park in 2018.
