Acupuncture without needles can be used by unlicensed community responders to provide symptom relief for people with addiction, mental illness, trauma, and pain. It is a safe, inexpensive, well-studied, and effective service for the outreach toolkit.
Come learn how to help yourself and your clients with acupuncture in a two hour in-person FREE training June 1, 2:00 – 4:00 PM.
Limited seating is available for AMSA members and non-members on a first-come-first-served basis. Details about the downtown training location will be sent by May 25. Your must RSVP to join the training.
