I’m moving to the Somerville Armory on 8/1/2020

After 15 years in Davis Square I am moving just up the road to the Somerville Armory, 191 Highland Ave., Ste. 2B. My first day in the new space will be 8/1/2020.

I am sad to leave my wonderful home in Davis Sq., but the time is right for this move, and I am excited for the future of my practice in the very groovy Somerville Armory.

There is a large free parking lot behind the building, and ample free parking up and down Highland Ave. For those who take the Red Line for appointments I will still be within reach with a 15 minute walk from Porter Square. 

My last day of patient visits in Davis Square will be 7/24/2020. I will be closed for the last week of July and the first week of August as I get everything squared away in my new space.

When I reopen I will be offering a new way to do our appointments: drive-in intake/same-day acupuncture. Having access to a free parking lot will allow us to do a telephone intake while you sit in the comfort and safety of your car before you come into the building for your treatment. This will allow me to get all of the information I need to craft the right treatment for you while allowing us to minimize our time together in the office. 

With this new way of practicing I can return to letting you book your own acupuncture appointments online, which I know most of you find most convenient for managing your time.

I will continue to offer telehealth visits as well for anyone interested in Chinese herbal medicine, or folks for whom a drive-in intake is not feasible. Please bear with me as I figure out how to make my schedule work best in this new reality.

Looking forward to seeing you all in the new space!

The Best Possible Health

Great Way Wellness Center is an oasis of calm and healing in Somerville, MA. Established in 2005, we offer traditional Chinese acupuncture and herbal medicine and private yoga instruction.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), consisting of acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine, is an ancient healing system with the strength to address complex 21st-century illness. It is based on the idea that Qi (vital energy) flows through the body, regulating health and well-being. TCM returns the body to health by correcting energetic imbalances that result from internal and external causes.

TCM understands that states of health and disease are unique to each person, and thus uses an individual approach to treating each person and each disease. With this individual approach, TCM can treat a wide variety of conditions effectively and safely. It is great at relieving all types of pain, but it can address many different health problems as well.

Your first visit with an acupuncturist/herbalist will consist of a comprehensive intake that explores your health from many different angles. After uncovering the root of your problem, the acupuncturist inserts sterile, hair-thin, single-use needles into various places throughout the body to resolve imbalances and restore health. Your first session will last about 1.5 hours, with follow-ups lasting about 1 hour.
