Put Your Body

IN GOOD HANDS

Acupuncture in Back Bay, Boston

Hours, Location, and Contact Information

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat various medical conditions such as back and neck pain, stress, and infertility. Johnston Family Acupuncture offers traditional acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping therapy, and electroacupuncture in Boston, Massachusetts.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles to various depths through the patient's skin, at specific points on the body. Based on the concept that a vital energy called Qi (“chee”) travels along 14 main pathways, illness or pain occurs when this energy flow is blocked or weakened. Stimulating acupuncture points along the meridian restores the balance in the body, helping to relieve symptoms and promote wellness.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I wear to a session?

Lose-fitting, comfortable clothes are best as most acupuncture points are on the lower legs, arms, back and abdomen. 

What will happen in the session?

We will start the session with a health intake, then we will get you comfortably situated on the table. After the needles are in, you will rest for about 30 minutes and most patients are so comfortable, they fall asleep! 

Will it hurt?

No! The most you will feel is a dull ache or a brief sharp sensation that dissipates quickly. Most patients don't feel the anything at all!
