Boston Veterans Community Acupuncture Project

The Veterans Community Acupuncture Project offers free weekly acupuncture for veterans. Acupuncture can treat pain, stiffness, headaches, insomnia, digestive problems, anxiety and many other issues. It is also extremely relaxing!

Treatment is done in a community-style format, which consists of:

  • treatment is done in a group, seated in chairs
  • acupuncture needles on ears only
  • treatment lasts 20-45 minutes (you decide how long you want to stay)
  • uses sterilized, single-use disposable needles only
  • needles are tiny (about the width of a hair) and virtually painless
  • all volunteers are professional acupuncturists licensed by the Massachusetts state medical board

All veterans are welcome to attend. Continue reading
