FREE ACUPUNCTURE FOR ACTIVE MILITARY, VETS & THEIR FAMILIES|
WHEN: Monday Evenings, 6:30–8:30pm
WHAT: The o’Kelly McClusky Seattle Military Stress Recovery Project [aka Seattle Acupuncture for Veterans] provides free acupuncture treatments for veterans returning from Iraq or Afghanistan, but also welcomes all veterans from all other past conflicts or wars as well as veterans’ family members.
Treatments are based on the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) ear protocol, which has proven to be extremely powerful in alleviating symptoms of stress and trauma. During treatment, people sit fully clothed in a circle of chairs, and the licensed acupuncturist places 5 tiny needles on each ear. The recipients are invited to close their eyes and rest for 30-45 minutes, as the acupuncture does its work. Veterans at these clinics are experiencing benefits such as a full night’s sleep for the first time in years and fewer bad dreams. They are reporting improved mental clarity, less anxiety and a reduction in stress.
