Acupuncturists Without Borders

My acupuncturist just emailed me an amazing announcement. She’s off to New Orleans to volunteer for Acupuncturists Without Borders (AWB). It’s a wonderful organization, and all I can say is, thank the deity of tiny needles that the West is now more open to using this powerful natural practice to help with healing human trauma. Here’s how it works: Like Doctors Without Borders, AWB volunteers travel to places that have suffered large-scale traumatic events (like Hurricane Katrina) and offer free acupuncture in group settings. What many people still don’t know (but are realizing in increasing numbers as study after study proves it) is that acupuncture can work wonders in helping to heal psychological and emotional traumas, not to mention your everyday injuries and stresses (I know it helped me tremendously this past year when I was going crazy from writing deadlines).

Do you know of any acupuncturists who might be interested in helping out AWB? What has acupuncture done for you lately?

Deity of Tiny Needles: daughter of a far scarier god. Thank you for the information, and for getting the word out about acupuncture. It’s definitely gaining more respect in scientific circles.>

I am familiar with Doctors without borders and the important work they do around the world so I’m delighted to hear about those who are helping people through acupuncture. The citizens of New Orleans can definitely use the help. Thank you for spreading the word.>
