Free Community Acupuncture For Hurricane Victims October 10, 2016

Now that Hurricane Matthew has come and gone, we’re aware that some of our patients have suffered major damage to their homes and businesses while a large number of us are still without power.

In response, Family Tree Acupuncture is setting up a relief effort to help those who have been severely affected by the recent storm. Please read below for more information about our Hurricane Matthew Recovery Project.

Our Veteran’s Acupuncture Clinic hours will resume as normal this week, and we’ll be extending those hours for the month of October to accommodate those who have been affected by the storm.


Acupuncturists Respond to those affected by Hurricane Matthew
Free community acupuncture clinic hours available in Daytona Beach, FL

October 9, 2016, Daytona Beach, FL – Volusia County residents are among the many who have been affected by Hurricane Matthew. Some will be suffering from serious acute traumatic stress – they may be having flashbacks, panic, insomnia, headaches, or any number of symptoms. According to the National Center for PTSD, disasters of wind and water can cause high levels of stress, anxiety and other negative psychological conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD for victims.

flaglerbeachIn response, Family Tree Acupuncture is implementing a program to provide free acupuncture to victims of the recent hurricane. Groups around the country are forming to create a nationwide network of free community acupuncture clinics for populations such as victims of natural disasters and terrorism, as well as veterans and active duty military. Such clinics are already operational in cities like Orlando for victims of the Pulse nightclub shootings.

Family Tree Acupuncture, who is coordinating the program, has had a similar type of community clinic up and running since 2013. Having successfully implemented community-style acupuncture and provided over 2600 free treatments for veterans and active duty military, Family Tree Acupuncture is now working to implement its Hurricane Matthew Recovery Project and inviting acupuncturists in Volusia County and surrounding areas to participate.

    Community Style Acupuncture consists of:

  • acupuncture needles on ears only.
  • treatments to help reduce stress and anxiety, relieve both physical and psychological pain, help with trouble sleeping, and provide a general sense of well-being and calmness.
  • 30 – 45 minute treatments.
  • treatments performed in a group setting.
  • needles that are pre-packaged, sterile, and disposed of after use.

Family Tree Acupuncture’s Hurricane Matthew Stress Relief Project will be available to those who have been affected by the recent hurricane on Thursday evenings from 4-7pm through the month of October at Family Tree Acupuncture: 315 S. Palmetto Avenue, Daytona Beach, FL 32114. No appointment is necessary. Treatments will be given on a first come, first served basis.
