New York- As a part of relief efforts taken up around the nation to aid those who were affected by Hurricane Katrina, Pacific College, New York is working to raise funds to assist Acupuncturists without Borders, in order to help the healing process from this tragedy.
In order to aid and support those who have suffered from this natural disaster, acupuncture can be extremely beneficial in helping people facing enormous stress, anger, frustration, depression, fatigue and other emotional and physical pain.
As a part of the relief effort, Acupuncturists without Borders will be traveling to Houston and surrounding areas where evacuees are being housed to provide free acupuncture treatments.
Community style acupuncture provides the opportunity to set up treatment facilities anywhere, as well as the ability to treat large groups at once. Auricular treatment is provided to each patient for 30-60 minutes while sitting in a chair.
In addition to reaching out to the victims of this disaster, treatments will also be made available to all service workers including police, search and rescue volunteers, Red Cross volunteers, as well as all medical personnel.
Throughout the month of September, our clinic, Pacific College Acupuncture Center, will be accepting donations in support of this program.
For more information on the relief efforts or to make a donation, please contact Pacific College at (800) 729-3468.
