Medicine of PEace

Do you ever watch the news and wonder:

“Is there anything I could do that would promote peace in this world, instead of more pain?”

There is.

Donations so far to AWB’s Medicine of Peace Campaign, Fall, 2016

Olimometer 2.52

Every $10 we receive allows us to provide a treatment for someone, somewhere, who truly needs it. $10 can change a life forever!

Acupuncturists Without Borders’ treatments help the survivors of human-made and natural disasters recover – and sleep, eat and think – so they can begin to put their lives back together. Without this type of intervention, when traumatic events happen, the people impacted can become stuck in an imbalanced state, physiologically, known as “fight or flight.” This can lead to post traumatic stress, PTS. When people have PTS, they are more likely to be angry or even violent and to perpetuate trauma in their families and communities.

AWB’s treatments create a ripple of peace, instead of violence and chaos, spreading throughout in the world.
