Acupuncture: a non-drug treatment for pain and symptoms of Gulf War Illness
I have been treating veterans with acupuncture since early in my career. Aware of the impacts military service can have on health, I was eager to offer acupuncture as a way to support veterans. Initially I organized a free weekly ear acupuncture clinic that focused on treating PTSD, anxiety, and stress. A group of local acupuncture volunteers offered those services for nearly six years and it was a wonderful way to introduce acupuncture in the community.
In recent years I have had the pleasure of offering full-body, ongoing treatment to veterans through the Veteran's Choice Program which offers 100% coverage of acupuncture for pain management. Feel free to contact me anytime with questions about how the program works or if I can help a veteran in your circle find an acupuncturist in other cities or states! More information here
