Happy Veterans Day: Free Ear Clinic for Veterans

by Sean Honea L.Ac

Veteran Women

 

SCA thanks you for your Service on Veterans Day.

Free Ear Acupuncture (NADA) for all Veterans November 12, 2018 from 11 a.m. -- 3 p.m. at Southside Community Acupuncture.

The NADA protocol is a simple, standardized five-point auricular (outer ear) acupuncture modality, involving small, sterilized, disposable stainless steel acupuncture needles in 5 specific sites on each ear. NADA treatments are conducted in a group setting. After the needles are inserted, patients sit quietly for 30-60 minutes before needles are removed.

Potential Benefits: NADA auricular acupuncture may provide some relief of presenting symptoms such as pain, facilitation of the healing/recovery process, and reduction of cravings. It may also improve sleep and relieve stress.

Insomnia, Nightmares and Restless Sleep

Several of our patients mentioned having nightmares this week in addition to their regular health issues. Whether your dreams are personal or more globally focused, acupuncture can help calm the mind, ease the intensity of strong emotions, and allow the body to relax enough to make better sleep possible.

Seated Qigong

by Sean Honea L.Ac

Qigong Quote: Suzanne Friedman

Interested in learning about Qigong but worried about standing for long periods of time?Fortunately, it can be done seated in chair or on a cushion on the floor. Qigong is an accessible way to calm the mind and promote health, while moving your body in a gentle way. Our instructor Sean Honea, Licensed Acupuncturist and Certified Qigong Therapist, will be focusing on seated exercises for the rest of this year in his Wednesday and Friday classes. See our website for details. Beginners welcome.

Paying It Forward Board

by Sean Honea L.Ac

Ying Yang Candles

Since Summer, Southside Community Acupuncture (SCA) has been experimenting with a Pay-It-Forward or voucher board, which allows us to offer discounts or partial payment for those who cannot afford the lower end of our sliding scale: currently $40 for new patients; $25.00 for returning patients

How It Works: At your appointment select a voucher(s) located at the front desk and fill out SCA’s new patient forms. A patient can use multiple vouchers at the same time, and once a voucher has been posted anyone including the person who originally posted it can redeem it for a discounted treatment. There is no list to sign up for. No financial data is collected.

At SCA we believe that treatment sessions should be long, frequent, and affordable in order to facilitate better health and wellness. Our flexible group treatment model allows us to maximize the duration of each treatment; i.e. we never ask you to leave early to make room for another patient.

If you know anyone who might benefit from our program, please feel free to send them our way.
