I have osteo-arthritis in my knees and thumbs (both joints). This started between 12 and 15 years ago and has worsened gradually, recently becoming very painful in my thumbs. It interferes with many activities. I live an active life-style with gardening, swing-dancing and usually working out 5 days a week.
This September at age 65, I took up tap dancing. This is something I have wanted to do for many years; and I decided this year it is now or never.

Although skeptical I decided to try acupuncture for the joints in my knees and ankles.
I went on- line and found CommuniChi on Beacon Hill. I tried it out at twice a week for a month and then weekly ?? for maintenance. Even though I am tapping daily, with hour - long lessons twice weekly, I have had no trouble with my knees or ankles, with one exception. Due to snow and Thanksgiving, I had skipped my weekly session twice. That week-end my left knee became very painful. On Monday I had a treatment session, the pain left and has not returned. I have continued with my tap dancing with no interruption.

Added bonuses: recently I realized that the joint stiffness I had found creeping in over the past 2 years or so is much diminished. I can sit in the car, at table or at the computer for an hour or more and get up with no stiffening in my lower extremities. What a wonderful and unexpected benefit!! And amazingly, recently my thumb pain is diminishing. This benefit just started so I am increasing back up to twice weekly sessions until it is more improved.

Jordan Van Voast, who is a founder and the main acupuncturist at CommuniChi has a wonderful manner. He is skilled both in acupuncture and communication. The community treatment room is spacious, yet cozy. You can read more about it on their web-site.

It was an interesting experience to say the least. Your session is conducted with other patients around, sitting in chairs. Sessions are pretty affordable (about $20). Although I was satisfied with my acupuncturis, due to the neighborhood and the odd setup of the session I will not be returning.
