July 2021: Refer a Friend, Get a Free Treatment! All New Patients Free First Treatment!

Returning patients: If you refer a friend for their first treatment during the month of July 2021, you BOTH get a free treatment! To be eligible for a free treatment, your friend must complete their first treatment as a new patient at MWCA sometime between July 1-31. You may redeem your free treatment after theirs is completed, but no later than Aug 7, 2021. Limit one per person. For the month of July 2021, all new patients get their first treatment for free. 

Other changes for July 2021: 

  • We will be seeing up to 4 patients per hour.
  • ​5-Treatment cards will be available for purchase again for $125 starting July 1. Limit one card per person. Cards never expire, may be used for follow up appointments only, and may be shared among family members. Cards purchased at MWCA may only be used at MWCA. 

COVID update May 17, 2021

In light of Governor Baker's announcement today regarding the lifting of mask requirements in certain settings in Massachusetts, we wanted to take an opportunity to address any questions or concerns that our patients might have.
The State, as well as the CDC, both require that masks, for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals, continue to be worn in health care settings. As we are health care providers, and have a group treatment room, we will continue to require masks at MWCA for all patients, regardless of vaccination status, beyond May 29, 2021. We do not yet have a date as to when this policy will change. We encourage all of our patients age 12 and over to get vaccinated against COVID19, for their own safety, as well as the safety of the larger community. For our patients who are vaccinated, we are happy to learn of your status, but we will not require any written documentation. In the interest of fairness, our rules and requirements will apply to all, regardless of vaccination status, to protect our most vulnerable patients. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued patronage and cooperation. We would not still be here without you. Thank you.

Clinic COVID Guidelines
We reopened on June 15, 2020!
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 call to cancel your appointment if you get sick. 
  • We are seeing up to three patients per hour. (We will increase to 4 patients per hour in July 2021)
  • Because of our reduced capacity, our sliding scale is now $30-$50. We are no longer selling 5-treatment cards, but you may still use ones previously purchased. 
  • Appointments can be booked online.  
  • If you arrive early for your appointment, please wait in your car. 
  • 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
 Have you traveled outside Massachusetts in the last 2 weeks? NOTE that vaccinated individuals are exempt from all travel restrictions.

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

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.
