About Acupuncturists Without Borders - AWB
Acupuncturists Without borders was born in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, USA to provide rapid trauma relief care to those affected by the hurricane. In the aftermath of a disaster, individuals often experience distressing thoughts, feelings, and physical symptoms as they begin to rebuild and attempt to search for stability in their lives. For many, the effects of the trauma they experience may be debilitating to the point that it hinders, or makes impossible, their capacity to recover without adequate help. Acupuncture is a proven, efficient and low-cost treatment for this type of acute trauma. Acupuncturists Without Borders (AWB) provides disaster relief, recovery and support for building resiliency – to communities affected by disasters, human conflict, environmental devastation, poverty and social injustice. Unresolved trauma affects not only the health of individuals, but the well-being of families, communities and entire nations. Trauma often has repercussions for generations, preventing cooperation, co-existence and peace. With over 15 years of operative experience, we have provided over a million treatments across the US and the rest of the world and continue to provide stress and trauma relief to communities in need, as well as training local practitioners to continue carrying out this work in the long term. Community-style acupuncture allows those treated to experience relief together from stress and trauma. When the whole group feels calm and quiet, hope and resilience rise powerfully within it. AWB’s acupuncture treatments help people re-set, think more clearly, and benefit more fully from other trauma-healing therapies like psychological counseling.
