Community Healing event for people who still carry trauma from 9/11

I am planning a Community Healing event for people who still carry trauma from 9/11 and others who suffer from high levels of stress. I am offering it as a Free Public Service to encourage people to explore ways to reduce stress so they and their families can live a better quality of life.

Date :  Sunday September 11th, 12 Noon to 3 PM.

Where:  At the Great Neck Arts Center, 113 Middle Neck Road, Great Neck NY 11021    (Parking  available behind the building)

For Directions: or call 516-829-2570

About this event:  This event offers free acupuncture to reduce stress. The treatment follows the NADA (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) protocol, which is highly effective in resetting a person’s nervous system and giving them a new starting place from which they can heal. This event will raise funds to support Acupuncturists Without Borders’ (AWB) national and international effort to help people who have suffered from Post Traumatic Stress  (PTSD) following natural or man-made disasters. AWB’s vision is to foster the creation of stable, peaceful global communities through its community-based acupuncture services and training, which interrupt the cycles of unresolved trauma (visit for more info).

 About the Acupuncture Treatment:

  •  A 30 to 45 minute treatment in a community-style group setting with no disrobing
  • Five tiny pre-packaged and sterile needles on each ear, nearly painless when the needles go in.
  • A relaxing experience that reduces stress and anxiety, aids with sleep and provides an overall sense of well-being.

In addition:

  • Chair massage and Reiki treatments will also be offered FREE of charge.
  • Free refreshments will be provided.
  • No appointment is necessary – Suggested donation: $15.

Please note: Marie will be opening a low cost Stress Clinic in her office using Community Style Acupuncture on Friday evenings from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM, starting September 17th 2011.

A Lecture by Marie Regis, L.Ac.

Date/Time: Sunday May 29th from 4:00 to 5:00 PM
Location: The Acupuncture & Wellness Center, 29 Barstow Rd, Suite 304, Great Neck NY 11021

What is illness and what does it take to come back to a state of wholeness? Why is it that some health conscious people become ill while others seem to get away with poor diets and remain relatively healthy? Why do we sometimes feel worse when we give up the junk food and adopt a healthier lifestyle?
Being diagnosed with a chronic illness can throw us into a state of fear, shock or disbelief and our expectations often become an obstacle to healing. A new way of perceiving the changes in our body may be an important step in our healing journey. Marie Regis will share from her clinical experience and from the Chinese medicine perspective on the physiology of healing. There will be ample time for questions and answers.Marie Regis is a Licensed Acupuncturist with a practice in Great Neck. She has 20 years’ experience as a Massage Therapist, CranioSacral therapist and Reiki practitioner. She has studied extensively with Jeffrey Yuen, a Taoist priest and internationally recognized teacher and scholar in Classical Chinese Medicine.
