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.

Small Steps Healing Project making big waves

In the past few months, over 150 community members received free holistic healing thanks to the Small Steps Healing Project, part of We Got Us. Boston Acupuncture Project had the opportunity to contribute to this work.

Community Empowerment

What is We Got Us? From their website: “The We Got Us Empowerment Project is a Boston-based collective of Black community members, health professional students, and allies dedicated to empowering our communities with education about medical racism, COVID-19, and the vaccine. We also seek to promote public health and to influence policy in order to help keep our communities safe and healthy.”

The Small Steps Healing Project, a community-based collaborative, aims to “increase access to acupuncture and holistic healing for the historically marginalized populations in Boston and beyond.” Harvard medical student Eana Meng named the project after Dr. Tolbert Small, physician to the Black Panthers and one of the first American doctors to practice acupuncture.

Eana and other Small Steps Healing Project volunteers organized eight pop up clinics around Boston, providing acupuncture, reiki, sound healing, and more – all free for the community.

Learning and Celebrating

This past Saturday, October 22, 2022, Eana arranged for Dr. Small to fly out and speak in Dorchester. We learned more about Dr. Small’s trail-blazing life and work as a Black physician and activist. It was wonderful to be there and an honor to meet Dr. Small.
