Haiti: An Acupuncture Ambassador report

Acupuncture Ambassadors was honored to be able to play a small role in helping our dear friend, colleague and member of our training team Michele Ladue, L.Ac., on her recent medical mission to Haiti. Here is a short preliminary report of her experiences.

Dear Friends,
Thank you all so much for your generous donations to help support the Naturopathic Relief Clinic for Haitian Earthquake Survivors ( .  Because of your generosity we transported 9 large suitcases filled with healing supplies to Haiti, then restocked items needed while we were there.  We also hired local healers to help us, 2 who were providing bone-setting, massage therapy, and cupping to the folks with injuries and pain from the trauma of the earthquake. Venerable Jinpa and I offered Acupuncture, herbal medicines, homeopathic remedies, essential oil blends, and flower essences to the poor communities.

We set up free clinics in churches, schools, orphanages, and in donated homes in ghetto communities.  We treated thousands of people, half of which were children suffering from malnutrition, skin infections, worms and other parasites, fevers, diarrhea, belly aches from dirty water and improper sanitation.

The Haitian people responded positively to the healing modalities, especially the acupuncture and acupressure.  I would press on a point and their pain would be completely gone.  They were calling us the miracle Doctors at one of the locations.  Patients would walk in shy, with pained faces and walk out more vibrant, pain free and smiling. Some would even linger around helping or go out and bring back their friends.  They were very grateful for the care given.

This was very heart opening experience for me to provide this level of service to a community in such need. Venerable Jinpa and I were asked to give an interview to educate the community about Acupuncture and the clinic to be broadcast on Haitian radio.  We hope to continue the clinics in the future and work together with local healers and the community training them more about some of our healing techniques and integrating their own local natural medicines.

Much love to you from Michelle
