Date:10/9/2007

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin (AOMA, http://www.aoma.edu), an acupuncture college offering a comprehensive program of study leading to a Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine degree, announced today that it would be giving free acupuncture treatments Oct. 22 until Oct. 27th. The introduction to Oriental medicine is part of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day (AOM Day), officially observed on Oct. 24.

"This introduction is a great way to increase public awareness of the progress, promise, and benefits of acupuncture and Oriental medicine," said Will Morris, AOMA president. "The free treatments are a way to give everyone in the community a chance to experience this great medicine."

AOMA trains students in acupuncture, Chinese herbs, Asian bodywork, as well as Western science classes and martial arts. The faculty come from around the world and their graduates practice throughout the United States. AOMA practitioners help more than 400 patients a week in their Austin clinics. The free treatments are given by AOMA's acupuncture interns under the supervision of licensed acupuncturists.

"I enjoy being an acupuncturist because it helps patients feel better, and I enjoy being involved in the healing process," said Elizabeth Azcarraga, a student from Montreal, Canada.

The mission of AOMA is to transform lives and communities through graduate education in Oriental medicine

The free treatments are available for new patients at both Student Intern Clinics. There are discounted treatments for current patients and patients of AOMA's Professional Clinic. Call for appointments. The phone numbers for the Student Intern Clinic are 2700 W. Anderson Lane at (512) 371-3738, 1902 S. Congress at (512) 693-4373. The Professional Clinic phone number is (512) 467-0370.

Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world. Originating in China more than 2,000 years ago, acupuncture began to become better known in the United States in 1971, when New York Times reporter James Reston wrote about how doctors in China used needles to ease his pain after surgery.

The term acupuncture describes a family of procedures involving stimulation of anatomical points on the body by a variety of techniques. The acupuncture technique that has been most studied scientifically involves penetrating the skin with thin, solid, metallic needles that are manipulated by the hands or by electrical stimulation.
