What we do
Acupuncturists Without Borders' mission is to mitigate the destructive effects of trauma by alleviating suffering and nurturing individual and community resilience. Our work takes the form of practitioner training and mentorship, direct service to communities impacted by traumatic events, and support for ongoing community-based trauma-relief projects.
We primarily utilize community-style acupuncture and integrative medicine as a powerful, simple and safe way of helping people achieve a greater state of calm, quiet and clarity. Through our education program, we teach integrative, trauma-informed care to empower practitioners to treat trauma in their own communities. Our priority is collaboration with local communities to ensure long-term and sustainable benefits.
Practitioner Education & Training
AWB offers online and live trainings designed to equip acupuncturists and other healthcare professionals with the knowledge and expertise needed to serve communities impacted by natural disasters, human conflict, environmental devastation, poverty, and social injustice. All trainings are approved by the NCCAOM, CA, FL and TX Boards for continuing education credits.
Community-Based Trauma Relief Projects
We provide ongoing financial and material support for long-term trauma-relief projects around the world. These projects include AWB-affiliated projects providing integrative care for refugees, immigrants, farmworkers, veterans, first-responders and other populations affected by traumatic events.
Support for Disaster Relief Projects
AWB provides support for community-led disaster response. Depending on the needs of the team on the ground, this can take the form of financial support, supply donations, mentorship, free education and resources. When requested, we recruit eligible volunteers from our global community.
