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!
Care for others while caring for yourself! Join us to celebrate Carmen’s birthday on Friday, Feb. 21, 2020 and support justice for domestic workers with an acupuncture treatment at Boston Acupuncture Project (74 Fairmount Ave, Hyde Park, MA 02136).
The Boston Acupuncture Project is seriously looking for a space in which to open! This could be commercial space for lease, including a retail storefront, or a space within another organization that we could sublet long-term. We have been working with excellent brokers, but are hoping for a non-traditional solution or partnership.
Space needs: one large room that can be blocked off from the outside, just so you won’t see everyone in it immediately after walking in – sort of like a yoga studio – but that can be dedicated to being a community acupuncture clinic 90-100% of the time!
Neighborhoods: Dorchester, Mattapan, Roxbury, Hyde Park
The space must be:
+ accessible via public transit
+ wheelchair-accessible (including bathroom)
+ able to fit at least 6 reclining chairs (~700 sq ft) and potentially up to ~2000 sq ft
+ free of mold or chemical smells
+ rent $2400/month max, including NNN (depending somewhat on size, since the more chairs can fit, the more rent we could pay)
+ near some longer term parking for cars
Even better if it has:
+ room for 8-20 chairs (~900-1500 sq ft)
+ small office and/or waiting room separate from main treatment room
+ no build-out required
+ laundry in building
+ rapid transit access
+ dedicated parking
+ laundry in building (or very close by)
+ sink in room
+ natural light
+ quieter location
+ gross lease, no NNN
+ owned by a community organization with a vested interest in our mission
