Supporting movements for reproductive rights

Cartoon people hold a banner that says Abortion Is Healthcare

In July, BAP shows our support for everyone working for reproductive justice and abortion access with a 20% discount on all community acupuncture treatments*.

We know this is an especially stressful time for everyone involved in repro movements, whether that’s in a paid or volunteer capacity. Acupuncture is one way to care for yourself and help you get through stressful times.

First Visits for $28 (regularly $35-$65)
Return Visits for $20 (regularly $25-$55)

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

*treatments are regular community acupuncture treatments; this special does not apply to Bubble Blocks and cannot be combined with any other special offers. Thanks for understanding!

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).

This week, BAP offers free stress relief acupuncture treatments on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for anyone feeling impacted.

Masks required. Minimal paperwork. You can save your spot by clicking here to make an appointment using our online scheduler.

March Special for healthcare Workers

stethoscope with hearts, face mask, hand with another heart shape

It’s been a long, hard pandemic – and we want to give a small token of appreciation to those on the front lines.

This month, we thank healthcare workers with 20% off community acupuncture treatments.

First Visits for $28 (regularly $35-$65)
Return Visits for $20 (regularly $25-$55)

How to use the special: just let us know you’re a healthcare worker* when you come in, and get unlimited discounted community acupuncture treatments** in March 2022 at Boston Acupuncture Project!

*Healthcare worker = anyone providing professional healthcare in any setting, including physicians, nurses, mental health clinicians, dentists, ophthalmologists, respiratory therapists, medical technicians, EMTs, etc

**This special applies only to regular community acupuncture treatments, not Bubble Blocks, and cannot be combined with any other coupons or discounts. Thanks for understanding!

Free Food And Free Acupuncture Pop-Up

We are teaming up with a grassroots group working for food access in Hyde Park and Roslindale at this pop-up! Fridays in May, 1-3pm at 715 River Street, Hyde Park.

Save your spot online or just stop by. Treatments will be at least 20 minutes. If you’re driving, please park on a nearby street, like Wachusett, and NOT directly in front of the pop-up.

Keeping Our Doors Open – How You Can Help

Community acupuncture would not exist without you, and your participation.

Headline in purple: How Community Acupuncture Works. Top box in orange says: 1 acupuncturist, 1 patient, $120. Image shows acupuncturist with pale skin and gray hair next to one head/torso representing one patient. Middle box in Blue says: 1 acupuncturist, 2 to 4 patients, $30 to $60. Image shows acupuncturist with dark brown skin and black hair with 3 heads/torsos representing 3 patients. Bottom box in green says: 1 acupuncturist, 5 to 8 patients, $15 to $25. Image shows acupuncturist with brown skin and brown hair with 6 heads/torsos representing 6 patients.

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.)
  • Give BAP a good review online, to tell the world about why they should come here for acupuncture!
  • Share our posts on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. (Yes, it makes a difference!)
  • 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.
  • Make a one-time or recurring donation to Boston Acupuncture Project – these general donations will help us cover rent, electricity, supplies, and other basic expenses.
  • If you have pre-paid treatments you’re not using, consider letting us know you want to Pay It Forward
  • Let your family and friends know that acupuncture can help them just like it’s helped you. You can even book a Bubble Block appointment to come in all together.
  • Come in for acupuncture! Don’t forget about how great you feel with regular acupuncture treatments.

Thank you for participating in community acupuncture!

January 2021 special offers

New Year, New Patient Special: $21 for 2021

For January 2021 we’re offering a New Patient Special: your first visit with us is only $21 when you pay with cash in the clinic after your treatment.

This special is only good for the month of January 2021. So make your tele-health intake appointment online, or text or call 617-506-3868 to get the ball rolling on a fabulous new year! Click here to read more about our New Patient Process.

Massage Discount With Acupuncture 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.

Left hand side of image shows massage therapist in 4 Corners Yoga + Wellness T-shirt massaging someone's leg. Right hand side of image shows  someone in a recliner getting acupuncture with the camera focused on a hand with a needle in it; Boston Acupuncture Project logo over the recliner. Banner at bottom says Massage + acupuncture!!! The word EXTENDED is in yellow across the image.

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!
