Community Acupuncture for Veterans Summer 2014
Organized by: Acupuncture CAV
Military veterans often return home with PTS and other health challenges without a quality, effective way to get help they need. CAV (Community Acupuncture for Veterans) is a non-profit-pending organization founded in East Lyme, CT by citizens and veterans who want to make a difference for those who served.
During CAV acupuncture treatment events, veterans will not have to discuss medical history or even talk at all. Veterans may just sit quietly and relax as a painless acupuncture treatment helps you find peaceful, calm, holistic health.
Acupuncture treatments are performed by David LoPriore, a CT State Licensed Acupuncturist, 25-year practitioner of Asian medicine and 30-year martial artist specializing in treating and training veterans and other warriors.
Your donation helps our veterans to truly come home!
Many veterans have remarked that acupuncture treatments have helped them with Post Traumatic Stress, anxiety, depression, chronic anger and stress, as well as specific individual chronic pain; some patients are returning week after week because of the great benefits they are receiving.
"This acupuncture (by Mr. LoPriore, L.Ac.) is the only treatment I have gotten that completely eliminated my pain"
- A veteran whose knee was crushed by a 500-pound gun while in the Army
"My wife left me while I was deployed: I was angry, depressed and addicted. I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress, anxiety, depression, and ADHD. This acupuncture completely got rid of my anxiety and I fell asleep during the treatment!"
- a 20-year-old veteran soldier
"I thought acupuncture was 'baloney,' but it cut my pain in half (in one treatment)! It's no joke!"
- a veteran submariner with a career-ending injury
