All of the clinics listed below are independent entities run by local acupuncture volunteers, and have no legal affiliation with AWB. We support each other as part of AWB's Military Stress Recovery Project (formerly called the Veterans Project). AWB makes no guarantees as to the services provided.

"Member" and "Supporting" Clinics follow a general protocol taught by AWB at trainings. At least one person at each of these clinics has been trained by AWB. "Friend" clinics generally work with similar protocols, but do not necessarily have staff who have been to an AWB training.

Clinic and event information will be posted as it becomes available. Please check back often. You do not need to call ahead to attend a free clinic.
