Please note that starting in December 2013 our Saturday hours will be 9:00-5:00 (not 5:30).
In the event of a snowstorm you may cancel your appointment without any penalty. Please do call us at 617-499-9993 to let us know you won’t be able to make it – it helps us to accommodate others who may want to come in anyway!
Acupuncture Together is dedicated to making acupuncture as affordable, accessible and convenient as possible to as many people as possible.
Our clinic is a proud member of the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture, a multi-stakeholder cooperative whose goal is to make acupuncture affordable and accessible by offering acupuncture in community settings with affordable sliding scales. Want to learn more about what we do and why? Check out the community acupuncture documentary, Community Acupuncture: The Calmest Revolution Ever Staged.
Our sliding scale is $20-40 (plus $15 for the first visit). You decide what you can afford and pay what works for you. Our goal is to allow you to receive the care you need in order to feel better and stay better.
Appointments are strongly encouraged and walk-ins are accepted on a space-available basis. You may want to call us at 617-499-9993 and check for availability if you plan to come on short notice. Same-day appointments are usually available. Appointments may be booked online up to a half-hour prior to the next available appointment time.

About Acupuncture Together and Community Acupuncture:
Acupuncture Together opened its doors on May 27th, 2008 with the help and inspiration from our colleagues and friends at the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (formerly the Community Acupuncture Network) and Working Class Acupuncture. Community acupuncture originates from the way acupuncture is authentically practiced in China. Patients receive acupuncture in a group setting and receive treatments until their health conditions are fully resolved or greatly improved. Because we have studied extensively in a special distal type of acupuncture style, we can very effectively treat you without requiring you to undress; most points are from the elbows to the fingers, knees to toes, and head, scalp and ear lobes. Acupuncture is a therapeutic process. On your first visit a course of treatment will be suggested based on the length of time you’ve had your particular condition and its severity. As you progress with your treatments, the suggested frequency of your visits will change depending on your results. It is essential for us to initially determine, together, a course of treatment that you can commit to in order for you to get better. The sliding scale is intended to help you make that commitment. Acupuncture’s use can be compared to that of physical therapy or yoga in the sense that the single most important factor that will allow you to achieve the best possible results is to receive it regularly.
We believe you will feel quite comfortable and relaxed being treated among others in our soothing community setting. One of the best parts of our clinic, we think, is that we allow you to determine your treatment time. Most people relax with their needles for 30-60 minutes, but you may stay as long as you like as long as we have room for you, or until the clinic closes an hour after the last available appointment time. Having a community room also allows us to practice acupuncture with a more streamlined approach, allowing us to offer more acupuncture to more people. You can afford to come at the frequency that works best for you, and our clinic is capable of touching more of our community in a positive way.
Our clinic appreciates the diversity of human beings and we do not discriminate based on race, national origin, religion, age, height, weight, education, language, ability, marital status, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity or any other factor.
Acupuncture Together is a social business, and we greatly appreciate your referrals! By spreading the word, YOU allow for the most convenient, accessible and affordable acupuncture care in Cambridge!
