Clinic Reopening Guidelines
We are reopening on June 15!
Here are the main points for patients to know before booking their appointment.

Please read our "COVID 19 Safety Protocol" above for complete information.

  • Masks are required on all persons who enter the clinic, for the duration of their visit. No exceptions. 
  • DO NOT come to the clinic if you are ill. Please cancel your appointment if you get sick. 
  • We will only be seeing two patients per hour to start. 
  • Because of our reduced capacity, our sliding scale is now $30-$40. We are no longer selling 5-treatment cards. 
  • Appointments can be booked online. Only 2 weeks of the schedule will be available at a time. At the end of the first week, we will open another week of the schedule. For example, on Friday June 19, we will open the schedule for the week of June 29, and so on. 
  • No one will be permitted to linger in the reception area. 
  • If you arrive early for your appointment, please wait in your car. The door may be locked until your scheduled appointment time.
  • All patients will be screened at every visit. You will be required to be able to truthfully answer "no" to all of these questions:

In the last 72 hours (3 days): 
1. Have you OR anyone in your household tested positive for COVID 19, or awaits testing results for COVID 19?
2. Have you, or has anyone in your household come into contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID 19, or is awaiting results of a COVID 19 test?
3. Have you OR anyone in your household had any of the following symptoms:
* Fever (100.0 degrees fahrenheit or higher)
*New cough or shortness of breath
*Body aches
*Red itchy rash on feet/toes or skin sores
*Loss of taste or smell
*Sore throat
4. Have you traveled outside Massachusetts in the last 2 weeks?

  • We are no longer using any blankets. We will be covering chairs with a vinyl cover that can be sanitized between patients, and paper sheets. If you would like to bring a sheet from home to cover your chair, or a blanket for your legs, you may. 


Customized Video Acupressure Sessions 
Have a set of acupressure materials sent right to your home, and a video chat session to get a customized point prescription!

                             $20 follow up (20 minute video session only)

  • Press Ball Package: $25 (includes 20 single-use vaccaria seed press balls and one 20 minute video session)

The fine print:

Distance Qigong Healing Sessions
Abby is offering distance qigong healing sessions while the clinic is closed. Qigong energy healing takes place independent of space and time, so you can enjoy the benefits from the safety and comfort of your own home! Abby has been trained to do these energy healings by Qigong Master Wenwei Ou. It is a specialized training, independent of acupuncture training. You can learn more about this type of qigong healing by clicking here

The healing sessions can be used for absolutely any reason. Even if you do need help with a specific issue, you do not have to tell Abby what that is - the qigong energy automatically goes where it is needed. No special belief is required in order for it to help you. It is 100% safe and combines well with other treatments. 

How it works: 
Send an email to to request an appointment. Abby will reply to confirm the day and time. Healing sessions MUST be paid for in advance, online through either Venmo, PayPal, or Cash App. For this service, Abby is charging the same sliding scale we use at the clinic - any amount between $20-$40. A portion of this fee will go directly towards covering clinic expenses while we are closed. 

At the time of your scheduled energy healing, just lie down somewhere comfortable in your home. The sessions last about 20 minutes, so you may set a timer if you wish. After the session, notice how you feel. 

As with any healing modality, there is no guarantee of any specific result. Most people report feeling very relaxed and energized after their healing session. 

If you have questions or would like more information, please email
