An Announcement from Acupuncture Ambassadors

As a prelude to the launching of our new website, the inclusion of some very important advisors and partners and plans for some exciting and challenging new mission sites, I have just posted a re-vamped mission statement. In a way this is a new beginning for Acupuncture Ambassadors as we move into a higher level of organizational structure, partnerships with world class humanitarian foundations, organizations and individuals and re-dedication of service to humanity. Thank you.

Mission Statement

Integrating the Medicine of Acupuncture into Global Healthcare

Our mission is to organize sustainable Acupuncture treatment clinics and training programs worldwide to care for refugees, victims of violence, war, international conflict and the poor.

In a war-torn world there are countless victims: refugees, sufferers of torture and human trafficking and the desperately poor. Many whose life trauma have led to a medical diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the many related, stress caused maladies. In developing countries with limited or non-existent healthcare these individuals have little or no hope for relief. Their illness affects their ability to learn, work, enjoy life and contribute to their family, community, country and our world.

For centuries acupuncture has been used as an effective, economical and versatile treatment protocol for so many health issues including PTSD and its devastating symptoms such as digestive issues, chronic pain, respiratory, cardiac and nervous disorders and depression. Our Acupuncture Ambassadors are dedicated to sharing their knowledge of this ancient medicine with those in need by treating patients, setting up sustainable clinics and schools to train personnel charged with their care. We serve communities independently and partner with existing humanitarian projects that are interested in adopting an integrated approach to global healthcare.

We believe that global change begins with personal transformation and our goal is to support global healing by mainstreaming humanitarian acupuncture and contributing to the health and productivity of individuals worldwide, one point at a time.
