“Peace is the evening star of the soul, as virtue is its sun; and the two are never far apart.” -Colton.
This quote describes the peaceful radiance I felt in the room as people were getting treated with acupuncture, massage and Reiki. It was a success in that everyone benefited in some way. One woman said to me on her way out: ” I don’t know whether it was the acupuncture or the soothing music, but I feel more relaxed; this experience has shown me how good it feels to just stop.” As a clinician, most of my time is devoted to treating individuals one at a time, and the work is wonderfully rewarding. This community event is reminding me just how powerful it is to bring many people into a state of relaxation and healing at the same time. Some other testimonials:
“The treatment was soothing and without pain. I have had a lot of stress and anxiety. The treatment seemed to take the edge off. I was more relaxed afterward. Today is 9/11 and the treatment made me feel a little less depressed.”
“So relaxing and peaceful. Very professional and courteous. Information was interesting and timely.”
“I have never tried acupuncture before and was not sure what to expect, but it was really relaxing. I would like to try it again! Thanks!!”
