I participated in Acupuncture Awareness Day at the state Capitol in Sacramento on April 23, 2009. We gave people acupuncture out on the lawn area surrounding the Capitol building – it was a great event to have legislators and their staff experience the benefits of acupuncture first-hand! There have been at least two previous Acupuncture Awareness Days at the Capitol that I recall. This year’s was in conjunction with the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AAAOM) 2009 Conference in Sacramento. An article, “Expo 2009 – Solidarity in Sacramento for the Good of the Medicine”can be found on page 32 of the Spring 2009 edition of the American Acupuncturist, the AAAOM journal.
Here are some pictures of the day’s events:
