Wellness on the Water – Acupuncture for Symptom Relief
WHEN: Wednesday, August 2: 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. | WHERE: VIP Tent, Canalside
The ancient art of acupuncture has been used in Asia for centuries to treat many conditions and relieve pain. It’s now being used in the United States and other Western countries to ease everything from low back pain, to nerve pain (such as painful shingles rashes), to headaches, fibromyalgia, and menstrual cramps — and more.
Join Doug McDaniel, MTOM, LAc, to learn about this traditional Chinese practice which involves the insertion of extremely fine needles into the skin at specific “acupoints.” This may relieve pain by releasing endorphins, the body’s natural pain-killing chemicals, and by affecting the part of the brain that governs serotonin, a brain chemical involved with mood.
