Frequently Asked Questions

How to find the office

Our office is located at 42 Summer Street in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. We are on the 3rd floor within the Berkshire Healing Arts suite (306 A).

  • The main entrance is located at the front of the building by the street on the right of Berkshire Nautilus.

  • Should you prefer to use the elevator,  it is conveniently located by the parking lot on the left-hand side of Berkshire Nautilus.

Do the needles hurt?

No, the needles insert into the body so quickly that the pain receptors under the skin cannot perceive the sensation as painful. In some areas where this is less flesh, such as the hands and feet, a sensation may be felt similar to a mosquito bite without the itch. This sensation should subside quickly after the needle has been inserted.

Where to park?

We strongly suggest NOT parking in the Hotel on North lot.

Your car is subject to towing

There is ample parking available!

The FREE parking for 42 Summer Street is located toward the back of the building on the Left-hand side of Berkshire Nautilus.

There is also a large parking lot across the street however, fees do apply.

How many treatments will you need?

Everyone responds to acupuncture treatments differently so, multiple factors are evaluated to help determine the likely amount of treatments per patient.


The body's resilience to heal declines over time so, repairing imbalances will need time to heal.


Be patient with yourself, the healing process, and your treatment plan.
