Free Educational Program on the Health Benefits Acupuncture
(Lapeer County, Michigan) – The Marguerite deAngeli Branch of the Lapeer District Library (921 W. Nepessing St., Lapeer) in partnership with local business, Rebekah’s Health and Nutrition Source, is offering a free presentation on the health benefits of acupuncture on Monday, November 5, 2012 from 6:00p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Ramie Yelle, an acupuncturist and herbalist with a Master’s Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine with eleven years of experience will discuss the basics of acupuncture including how and why it is used, who may benefit from acupuncture and the research behind this form of medicine.
According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the National Institutes of Health, the term “acupuncture” describes a family of procedures involving the stimulation of points on the body using a variety of techniques. The acupuncture technique that has been most often studied scientifically involves penetrating the skin with thin, solid, metallic needles that are manipulated by the hands or by electrical stimulation. Practiced in China and other Asian countries for thousands of years, acupuncture is one of the key components of traditional Chinese medicine.
Millions of Americans use acupuncture each year, often for chronic pain. Research exploring a number of possible mechanisms for acupuncture’s pain-relieving effects is ongoing.
