Acupuncture And Oriental Medicine Go To Washington DC

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Go to Washington DC

The Opioid Crisis in the United States has created a great deal of interest in acupuncture and other oriental medicine techniques like meditation, massage therapy,  tai chi and qigong.  New guidelines for the treatment of pain are being created which recommend the use of non-opioid approaches to pain relief be used first. I will be attending The American Society of Acupuncture Conference in Washington DC this weekend. Speakers will be presenting the latest integrative medicine research,  legislation and efforts to help bring these techniques to those who need them. The conference is culminating in a health fair offering community style acupuncture treatments to members of congress and their staff. I am looking forward to this outreach effort and hope we can create more awareness of how powerful acupuncture can be in alleviating pain and stress!
