For 30 years, Abby’s office was located on Washington Street, at the corner of Walnut Street in Newtonville. To provide her patients with the cleanest, safest and most controlled environment during the Covid-19 era and beyond, Abby has moved her practice to nearby 132 Tolman Street, West Newton, MA 02465. The setting is peaceful and the view is lovely… you can hear birdsong during your treatment.
The Abby Kessler Center for Acupressure and Acupuncture in Newton, MA has been serving Newton, Waltham, Weston, Wellesley, Watertown, Needham, and the Greater Boston, Massachusetts area since 1990. Abby Kessler's experience and unique combination of skills, which include acupuncture, acupressure and Chinese herbal medicine, have made her one of the leading practitioners in the region.
Abby's goal is to help her patients become healthy, pain-free and educated about natural and non-toxic methods for attaining and maintaining their health. She makes sure that all her patients are given a thorough explanation of their condition and a full tool-kit of individualized lifestyle recommendations to support their health and well-being.
Abby offers one-hour tele-health consults during which she takes an extremely thorough look at your current health situation. She then prescribes custom herbal formulations, dietary adjustments and other lifestyle changes to help keep you healthy and and calm during this time of transition.
She also offers one-hour guided self-acupressure sessions via Zoom. In these sessions you will learn which specific meridians or energy channels on your body need recalibration. She will then demonstrate how to improve the circulation of energy or “Qi” within these channels by self-applying pressure to specific acupressure points on your body. These sessions are invaluable for learning how to manage and resolve pain and stress. Practicing self-acupressure between acupuncture treatments also helps you to fully integrate and maintain the progress made during your acupuncture sessions.
If you have just caught a cold, are bedridden, self-quarantining, or if you are dealing with viral or post-viral symptoms or acute respiratory infections, Chinese herbal medicine can hasten your recovery. Best results are obtained when herbs are prescribed at the first sign of illness.
