World Health Day is Monday

Community Acupuncture Berea hosts events



Qi gong demonstrations also will be conducted at noon and 5:30 p.m. 

“We have a practitioner affiliated with WaysMeet who also is nurse practitioner who had studied in China several times to learn this form of moving meditation,” Flannery said. “It’s actually part of the health care system in China. It would be something that would be prescribed just like a medication for stress. It’s non-aerobic. It’s something older people in Asia often times do.”

Information also will be available on the theme of this year’s World Health Day, the effects of climate change on health, and there will be opportunities to learn more about the Berea Rain Barrel Festival, scheduled for April 26. 

All donations for services will support the work of Acupuncturists Without Borders, a nonprofit organization which provides free acupuncture to communities and individuals in crisis.

“I went to a training in January to be part of a team, and I was incredibly inspired by the way in which it can effectively complement what the Red Cross and the emergency workers offer in a situation like Hurricane Katrina,” Flannery said. “The nice thing about it is that it can be helpful not just for the people who are affected by the crisis, but also for the people responding to it. To me, it’s really powerful that you have a treatment that can apply to a community when the community has been stricken.”

No appointments are needed and parking is available in the Boone Tavern lot.
