Our History

The Lea Tam Acupuncture Center was established in Boston in 1982 by husband and wife Lea Tam and Tom Tam, both Chinese immigrants who arrived in the United States to start a new life.

Lea Tam is an active acupuncturist in the clinic along with her son Bell Tam and daughter Yvonne Tam. All 3 holds certifications and licenses to practice acupuncture. Tom Tam is retired from acupuncture.

Bell and Yvonne are second generation acupuncturists who have served as apprentices in the clinic learning from both Tom and Lea from a very young age. Both Bell and Yvonne hold a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture.

Tom recently retired in 2013 after practicing acupuncture for 30 years to pursue teaching and writing about his healing expertise and experience

Today, our office is still located in Boston’s Chinatown and is one of the longest standing acupuncture clinics in Massachusetts. We also have offices in Quincy MA and Haverhill MA.
