Acupuncturists Without Borders (AWB) is dedicated to providing disaster relief, fostering recovery, and promoting resilience in communities affected by natural disasters, human conflict, environmental devastation, poverty, and social injustice. We recognize that unresolved trauma not only impacts individual health but also the well-being of families, communities, and entire nations, often with lasting consequences that hinder cooperation and global unity.
Our mission at AWB is to mitigate the destructive effects of trauma by alleviating suffering and nurturing individual and community resilience. We utilize community-style ear acupuncture as an effective, simple, and safe method to help individuals "reset" their nervous systems, promoting calmness, clarity, and tranquility. Experiencing relief from chaos allows communities to regain hope, determination, and resilience, enabling them to move forward.
AWB is dedicated to collaborating with local community-based organizations and providing treatment to all those impacted by traumatic events, including survivors, first responders, emergency personnel, and care providers. We offer services and training within local communities to ensure long-term, sustainable benefits after our departure. Our goal is to empower each community we serve in a manner that best supports their unique needs for rebuilding and recovery.
