NOTE: Insurance coverage for acupuncture is still not widespread in Massachusetts. Please check with your insurer if you think you may have coverage. We can provide documentation for insurance reimbursement, but please understand that our packages and other discounts are meant for those who will pay out-of-pocket; if seeking reimbursement, please pay singly for your treatments.
We believe fervently that quality medical care should be available to all, and that more frequent and consistent treatment is the ideal for many patients. We therefore offer pre-paid packages for treatment, which support those trying to reach that ideal. Additionally, gift certificates may also be available through WRSI.com’s Save 30 Store at a discounted rate; please see terms and conditions there. Finally, group acupuncture is a very financially- sensible approach to receiving quality treatment.
