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.
