Free Acupuncture Sessions on Sundays in Wayland

Healing Point Therapeutics in Wayland is offering free acupuncture sessions to first-time clients every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sessions are by appointment only, and those interested are advised to book at least a week in advance. Owner Marisa Fanelli says her goal in offering the free treatments is to educate people about this healing practice. “Most people associate acupuncture with scary needles that are only useful for chronic pain conditions,” she says. “They don't realize that the needles are thinner than a hair, and that acupuncture can be used to treat everything from asthma to G.I. issues.”

Fanelli says that even a half-hour session of acupuncture will yield noticeable results, and that many patients report improved sleep, digestion and mood after a treatment. “There are so many people out there who can benefit from this type of medicine, but they simply don’t realize it,” says Fanelli. “New patients are always surprised at how different acupuncture is from their expectations. Most find it almost painless, and many say it’s more relaxing than a massage."  

Healing Point Therapeutics is located at 185 Commonwealth Rd. in Wayland. For more information, call 877-433-1554 or visit
