Group Meeting in Columbia.

NOTE: This event will be held at an alternate location. Not the Presbyterian Church at which we normally meet.

This week, coordinator Bob Gordon, MSOD, MA, MS, presents the topic Acupuncture – Presentation, Demonstration, Q&A. Then, there will be small-group break-out sessions.

Newcomers please join us at 6:30 PM.

Regular meeting begins at 7:00 PM.

I checked in the history of my blurbs to see if I had written one for acupuncture. I didn't find one. I did, however, find this gem from July 29, 2009, Diane Lichtenberger posted, "A pun just for tonight's meeting: Acupuncture: A jab well done."
Then, I Googled and found some other things: A research team from Anhui University of Chinese Medicine in China conducted a study on rats to verify acupuncture protects brain neurons against injury with heroin relapse.
I also found some things that our group may relate to better: Some studies have indicated that acupuncture may help in treating low back pain, fibromyalgia, migraines, post-operative dental pain, hypertension and osteoarthritis, as well as chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. Other studies have shown that acupuncture may help women with painful periods. A Cochrane trial found that although acupuncture helps people with headaches, fake acupuncture also seems to help them. If these benefits interest you, attend the meeting and see what you think.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
