On Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 1:00 p.m., The Friends of the Seaside Library welcome Acupuncturist and Herbalist, Katherine Stewart.
Acupuncturists are trained in a traditional form of Chinese medicine which involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into various points of the body to relieve pain, promote healing, and improve physical, mental and emotional well-being.
The body points correspond with energy channels that are stimulated during treatments and are considered pathways to a life-energy force called Qi.
The most commonly reported use of acupuncture is for back pain, neck pain, and headache.
Acupuncturists are highly regulated in the United States by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. The needles are also regulated by the FDA.
According to a 2017 National Health Survey, an estimated 3.1 million adults and 150,000 children in the United States have received acupuncure treatment.
At this event, Katherine will explain the techniques and benefits of acupuncture and will give a demonstration of the process.
Katherine Stewart is a licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist, practicing for 29 years.
The event is free to the public.
Registration is not required.
