Review by caroline yang

I am so grateful to have Ben and Masako near me. I started going to People's Acupuncture Clinic in the summer of 2015 with an array of health issues. I was impressed with the care that Ben took in our initial appointment during which he took my pulse and diagnosed my issues without my telling him about them. When I could afford the time, and when I was having particularly bad flare-ups, I saw Ben twice a week, and I feel that my health was optimal during those times. Now I go in for a preventive treatment at least once a month, though I think it really should be every other week. In any case, I always feel energized and rejuvenated after seeing either Ben or Masako. I can't recommend both highly enough!

Review by Embodied Mind

I love the People's Acupuncture Clinic! When I was a student, I was curious about acupuncture but never tried mostly because I couldn't afford it. Then I got into an accident. I got hit by a car on my bike and broke my collar bone (yes it could be worse). I didn't want to take pain medications because frankly, I did not like how I felt. I was in a lot of pain and decided to give acupuncture a try. I couldn't afford a private session and my insurance doesn't cover acupuncture, so I thought $20 a session was reasonable. I was pleasantly surprised. I ended up going every other day for about 2 weeks or so (I can't remember) and I didn't have to take my pain medication! My bone fractured healed beautifully as well. Ever since then, I have been going for various ailments and I'm never disappointed. They are a wonderful team and they have a gentle approach to them. I recommend the People's Acupuncture clinic to all my clients as well (I'm a mental health counselor). They also have a great herbal supplement dispensary and offer classes.

My name is Diane Alexander, but I'm using my old gmail account. I have been going to The People's Accupuncture Clinic for about a year and a half. I have back issues, digestive issues and fatigue. I am amazed at how well they have been able to resolve these issues. I have been to other accupuncture clinics in Massachusetts, but none of them have been able to help me like this clinic has. They are extremely knowledgeable of how to work with people's body issues. The atmosphere is incredibly friendly and calm. I have recommended The People's Accupuncture to many of my friends and family.

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. I got effective treatment without a whole lot of hocus pocus that seems to surround a lot of other practices and noticed results from the very first treatment.

What is a Dispensary?

A dispensary is a store that sells special items or dispenses the specialized items. Cannabis or marijuana dispensariers started in the US some time in the early 1990’s when Dennis Peron opend the San Francisro Cannbis Buyers Club. Back then the cannabis dispensary faced a ton of hardships, but Dennis, his team and dream helped pave the future for all future recreational and medical cannabis dispensaries. In 2014 the first recreational dispensary, 3D Cannabis opened it’s doors in Colorado. As of 4-1-19 33 states have medical dispensaries and 10 states have recreational dispensaries.

At a dispnsary one will find many differnt kinds of cannabis flowers (buds) and concentrates, edibles along with smoking untensils, but have a limited selection compared to online shops like Elev8 Glass Gallery. The dispensary also will have what is called a budtender to help you find what you are looking for. If you need help with cannabis info Elev8 Presents is a good resource.

What is the difference between a medical or recreational dispensary?

In realtiy medical and recreational dispensaries are the same thing. This all comes down to the states laws on cannabis. We feel cannabis is just like alcohol and medical will happen first and then recreational will follow, and so far history is showing this. Dispensaries are an excellent place for patients and recreational smokers alike to find the cannabis that best suits their needs!
