Down to Earth Acupuncture

Down to Earth Acupuncture is a Community Acupuncture practice in Worcester, MA.

Our mission is to make acupuncture affordable so that more people can experience its many health benefits.

We charge a sliding scale of $20-$40 per treatment. You decide how much you can afford to pay within this range; we will never ask for income verification, and the amount you pay will not influence the care you receive.

Our treatments are tailored to each individual and take place in a group, with patients relaxing in recliner chairs. This community setting is similar to the way acupuncture traditionally is practiced in China.

Find out how acupuncture can help you. Contact us with any questions or schedule an appointment by calling our office or using the online system. You can learn more about Community Acupuncture or even become a member of our cooperative at the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA).

At Down to Earth Acupuncture we treat a wide variety of conditions and a diverse group of patients. We welcome people of all races, national origins, ages, religions, abilities or disabilities, shapes and sizes, incomes, marital statuses, sexual orientations, sexes, and gender identities.

Emily is friendly and professional. First and foremost, she listens and remembers. The treatments themselves are almost completely painless and during them I find myself more relaxed and breathing more deeply than I thought possible. Since beginning treatments with Emily, the frequency and severity of my migraines has lessened to the point that I’ve been able to resume more normal activities and she has completely eliminated the accompanying facial pain, which had previously been a daily problem. Overall I have more energy and look forward to the sessions and the relief and sense of well-being that I leave the office with.

I suffered a low back strain and tried for three days to manage the pain and muscle spasms on my own. After just one acupuncture treatment with Emily, my pain was dramatically reduced and my mobility was restored by 80 percent. As a health care professional of 19 years and a business owner, I have experienced a good deal of physical ailments ranging from the common cold to whiplash, as well as stress, anxiety and insomnia. Over the years I have depended on acupuncture as a consistently effective treatment that leaves me feeling relaxed, pain-free and energized.T.S.


I had experienced chronic pain for almost a year when I began acupuncture therapy with Emily. After just a few visits, my pain became more manageable and I found myself becoming more active again. I am now able to go up to a week at a time without any pain. With each visit to Emily, I continue to improve.M.S.


Emily is amazing and has a terrific ‘bedside manner.’ I always feel relaxed and refreshed after my treatments.S.M.


Emily took the time to listen to me and was very caring. She was very thorough in her diagnosis and helped with the digestion problems I’d been having.J.B.


In the summer of ’07, I began to experience severe pain, weakness and numbness in my right hand and forearm. My doctor recommended surgery. I decided to try acupuncture since I wanted to avoid surgery. After 4 or 5 acupuncture treatments with Emily, there was significant improvement in my arm. The pain and numbness decreased and the strength returned. I most highly recommend acupuncture therapy!M.I.


Emily’s sessions have allowed me to approach work and life with renewed energy and vitality.L.K.



After trying so many medical and alternative options I feel acupuncture finally eliminated my migraines. Thank you Emily! I continue to get a treatment anytime I have a cold, allergies, or pains and I think it always helps.A.C.


In an effort to reduce daily stress, I have tried many different modalities…..and acupuncture works the best! I am able to have sessions regularly and as a result I feel very calm and centered on both emotional and physical levels. Emily is extremely knowledgeable. She has a kind, gentle, healing touch and she is an amazing gift to us all! Thank you, Emily for making community acupuncture accessible and affordable for everyone in the Worcester area !
