Please be on time for your appointment. We will try our best, but we may not be able to accommodate late arrivals in order to maintain social distancing and the flow of the clinic.
New patients; allow 60-75 minutes for your first treatment.
**All patients; allow enough time to get settled in and be ready for treatment (in your chair, pants and sleeves rolled up, cell phone off) by your appointment time. We will be waking you after you have been resting with your needles for 30-45 minutes, to maintain social distancing and the flow of the clinic.

The last acupuncture appointment of the day begins one hour before the end of the shift.
We require 24 hours notice for cancellations. Fee for a missed or late cancelled appointment; $40 for initial visit, $25 for follow up visits. Fees for COVID related cancellations will be waived.
Getting here: If driving, allow time to find parking (bring quarters for meters). If taking the Red Line, we are about a 5-minute walk from the Harvard Sq T station down Mass Ave, just past the corner of Bow St. The #1 bus stops across the street.
We take cash (always appreciated, we cannot make change), checks (if possible, please fill out before coming in), and credit cards (including HSA cards and contactless payment methods).
We strongly encourage you to set up an account when you schedule your first appointment. It will make scheduling faster for you and it will help us to keep more accurate records of your visits and treatments.

I was thrilled to discover Harvard Square Community Acupuncture. They express the ideal of community by making acupuncture affordable with a sliding fee and using communal rooms where you nonetheless feel a great sense of privacy and serenity. The atmosphere is calm and soothing. I have been treated by two of the acupuncturists, who were real experts, with deep knowledge of the human body, as well as deep compassion. I recommend it wholeheartedly.
