Many of you have probably had a chance to meet Sarah by now (that's her on the left). Sarah joined us earlier this year in anticipation of Christine going on maternity leave and has been a wonderful addition to the Red Earth Team. She is our Acupuncture Assistant and Receptionist and generally tries keeps us organized.
Most recently we've been blessed to have two wonderful volunteers helping us out at the reception desk part time. Carol and Ann have truly gone above and beyond to help out and we are very grateful to have them working with us.
It's these folks who manage all of those little things that keep the clinic running smoothly and allow our Acupuncturists to focus on providing high quality care for our patients. Thank you!!
Red Earth Acupuncturist, Rawls Whittlesey, has recently started volunteering with the Atlanta Veterans' Acupuncture Clinic in Atlanta. This is a FREE clinic for Veterans, Active Military and their families. Acupuncture is currently being investigated by the Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, D.C. as a viable treatment for PTSD in returning veterans. The military has also started using acupuncture in the battlefield to help with pain. Acupuncture treatments are offered in a group setting, with participants sitting quietly together. Everyone receives the same treatment which consists of 5 points in the ears. Some of the benefits include:
Improved mental clarity, concentration and memory
Decreased nightmares, hyper-vigilance and flashbacks
Reduced anxiety and irritability
More restful sleep
If you or someone you know is a Veteran, Active Military or one of their family members, please share this information with them. Clinics are held each Monday night at 6:00 - 7:00 pm, and the 1st and 3rd Saturdays at 10:00 - 11:00 am at the Church of the Epiphany on Ponce de Leon in Decatur. For more information visit the website www.acupunctureforveterans.org.
We give thanks for our patients every day of the week, and at this time of year we reflect back on how blessed we are to be entrusted to provide our services to you. At the clinic, we frequently discuss what a pleasure it is to work with our patients and how thankful we are to have been trained in such an amazing medicine. We delight when our patients show progress, and we see difficult cases as an enjoyable challenge. We love every aspect of what we do and thank you for allowing us to serve your health care needs! As you enjoy your Thanksgiving holidays with family and friends, know that we are grateful that you are a part of our community.
