Healing Post Combat Trauma, Helping Communities: The Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin joins effort to support national acupuncture programs

for veterans' and their families, and for disaster relief.

AUSTIN, Texas, March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin (AOMA, http://www.aoma.edu) will join a national effort to raise funds for stress relief acupuncture treatments for returning veterans and for areas affected by major disasters within the United States. In honor of World Health Day this year, acupuncturists around the country will hold community acupuncture events, where individuals can experience a relaxing treatment and support the cause of trauma relief and recovery. These events support the work of national non-profit organization Acupuncturists Without Borders (AWB). The organization was established after the devastating hurricanes of 2005 to help those in Louisiana suffering from stress and trauma. Volunteer acupuncturists from across the country treated close to 8,000 people with free acupuncture in Louisiana.

With the experience and expertise of bringing community style acupuncture to the people of Louisiana, AWB is taking its service to a different population, U.S. veterans and their families. The Iraq/Afghanistan Veterans Project is providing free acupuncture treatments for veterans returning from Iraq or Afghanistan, and also welcomes veterans from all other past conflicts or wars as well as the veterans' family members.

AOMA is also establishing a program to provide discounted treatments to veterans returning from Iraq or Afghanistan, as well as veterans from all other past conflicts or wars. Half price treatments ($15) are available at both the SoCo clinic (South Congress, 1902 S. Congress) Mon-Thurs 9:30am-3:00pm and at the new clinic in the GoodHealth Commons at Seton Medical Center Williamson Campus (Round Rock, 301 Seton Parkway, Suite 203) on Wednesdays 9:30am-4:00pm.

AOMA's nationally accredited program of study leads to a Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine degree. AOMA's mission is to transform lives and communities through graduate education in Oriental medicine.

On Monday April 7th 2008 AOMA will offer walk in treatments for a suggested donation of $20-50.
Community Style Acupuncture will consist of:

-- Acupuncture needles on ears only

-- Treatment to help reduce stress and anxiety; help with trouble

sleeping; provide a general sense of well-being and make you feel

better.

-- 30 - 45 minute treatment

-- Done in a group

-- All needles are pre-packaged, sterile, and disposed of after use.
