Simply put, the friendliest and most effective acupuncture treatment I've ever had. I've been to several acupuncture clinics around the country (and overseas) for a variety of problems (mostly sports injuries). People's Acupuncture Clinic does exactly what's needed in the right amount of time for the right price.
“Everything about this place is great! The acupuncture treatments and Chinese herbs are effective and affordable. The practitioners are caring and provide additional dietary advice based on your condition. The unusual (for this country) system they have going is wonderful and makes these health services possible for everyone... and it really works!
“The People's Acupuncture is an absolute treasure, a totally affordable oasis of calm. Run by one of the loveliest couples i've ever met, Ben and Masako are practically giving away their loving and attentive care. It's done in one big room and everyone sits in reclining chairs. I absolutely love this place and have been going almost every week for over a year. I'd recommend it to anyone looking to try acupuncture or Chinese herbal medicine, or for those who have been searching for a decently-priced place to get their needle fix.
“Dear Ben, I cannot thank you enough for yesterday’s care of my son. After we left your office he fell asleep in the car. I was able to carry him inside where he slept for 3hrs., woke up to eat a bowl of soup and went back to bed for the night. He slept incredibly peaceful all night long without coughing, sniffling, or dripping at all. This morning he is up and chipper and looking a thousand times better. I wish we had taken before and after pictures. I feel so grateful to have found you!”
“I feel very blessed to have Ben and Masako in our community and grateful that I can access their kind, gentle wisdom and support at such affordable prices. I have a history of back injuries and, after trying several methods to relieve painful lower back muscle spasms, I sought help at The People's Acupuncture Clinic. I walked in very slowly feeling exhausted, bent over in discomfort. An hour later I bounded out of my chair feeling revitalized and completely relieved of the pain which did not return. I had a similar experience when I woke one day with a very sore throat. I recognized it as the first step of a cascade of symptoms that usually last for weeks resulting laryngitis and bronchitis. After one acupuncture session I was symptom free. I also receive help with chronic issues which are improving and which I am confident will resolve over time with acupuncture, herbs, and suggestions for life style revisions.
"I first came to know Ben and Masako as nice and helpful neighbors when I moved to Amherst in the fall of 2008. Then a friend of mine told me how much they helped her with acupuncture and Chinese herbs at The People’s Acupuncture Clinic. Because of the stress of moving and adjusting to my new place, as well as my retirement , I got a bad case of the flu that disrupted my respiratory system for months. So, I decided to try acupuncture as an alternative to antibiotics.
"It's only taken two sessions to get my asthma under control. Ideal environment for serenity and genuine healing. I can't wait to see how much more my overall health will improve in the coming weeks."
