La Paz - Centre for the Art of Medicine Acupuncture to Commemorate the Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in Santa Monica, CA

La Paz - Centre for the Art of Medicine Acupuncture to Commemorate the Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in Santa Monica, CA

Since October, 2005, Acupuncturists Without Borders (AWB) has treated about 6000 people in Louisiana with free community acupuncture in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina…the situation there continues to be severe, with people experiencing acute stress and trauma and a desperate lack of services. Acupuncturists Without Borders would like to continue to send teams for at least 4 more months, and possibly longer.

Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) August 25, 2006

To commemorate the anniversary, and to raise more funds to keep these programs going, please join your local acupuncturist who is offering community style acupuncture in Santa Monica as part of a national effort.

Location : La Paz – Centre for the Art of Medicine,

  2901 Ocean Park Blvd. Suite 207

  Santa Monica, CA 90405


Beth-Ellen Fried, L. Ac. has also been part of AWB’ Summer Pledge Drive

Community Style Acupuncture will consist of:

 Acupuncture needles on ears only  Treatment to help reduce stress and anxiety; help with trouble sleeping; provide a general sense of well-being and make you feel better.  30 – 45 minute treatment  Done in a group  All needles are pre-packaged, sterile, and disposed of after use.

Donations for treatments will go to AWB’s work in Louisiana. Suggested donation per treatment is $20.00.

An August 2, 2006 article in the The Times-Picayune states: “In a grim assessment of mental health in post-Katrina New Orleans, two New Orleans psychiatrists say the condition is critical and warn that it probably won't get better anytime soon. Depression and post-traumatic stress disorder are common complaints, but most mental health professionals have left the city…they write in today's issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association.”

The focus of AWB’s work in Lousiana is to help with stress and trauma. The testimonials from those who have received these treatments point to their success and the urgency for more (you can find testimonials and more information on the organization at www. acuwithoutborders. org).
