Feel good while doing good with acupuncture for a cause in Hyde Park.
Community acupuncture treatments at Boston Acupuncture Project (74 Fairmount Ave, Hyde Park) are "by donation" on Friday, January 27, 2023 with 50% of proceeds benefiting Hyde Park's Racial Equity and Justice (REJ) Forum.
The REJ Forum is a "series of structured and inclusive conversations about racial equity and justice, intended to deepen the ongoing discourse, and spark and fortify impactful action that result in equity and justice for all residents; the priority is the Hyde Park community and the reach is all of Boston."

Acupuncture is a natural, holistic treatment using sterile, single-use, hair-thin needles inserted into specific points on the body. Since acupuncture helps the body heal itself, it can be used for a wide variety of health challenges alongside conventional treatment, including pain relief, stress relief, and so much more. Most people find the treatments pleasant and relaxing.
Boston Acupuncture Project provides individualized acupuncture treatments in a peaceful group setting. BAP's practitioners are licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine. "By offering relief from pain, stress, and isolation, we aim to contribute to the well-being of individual people, and the strength of our community as a whole."
BAP's Liberation Acupuncture framework "affirms that individual health and disease do not exist, and cannot be understood or addressed, apart from social conditions – particularly injustice, inequality, and the pervasive influence of traumatic stress."
In this spirit, BAP hosts monthly 4th Fundraising Fridays, partnering with local organizations working for social justice, raising funds and awareness.
Book your visit online at BostonAcupunctureProject.org or walk in from 4:00-6:00 PM on the 4th Friday of the month. Suggested donation: $20-$60. Appointments are strongly recommended and face masks are required.
