A Message from the Founder and Executive Director of Acupuncture Ambassadors
As Founder and Executive Director of Acupuncture Ambassadors, I am honored to have the opportunity to present you with information about our organization.
Acupuncture Ambassadors is a nonprofit 501(C) 3 organization incorporated in the U.S.A. under our corporate entity AMG Foundation. Our aim is to expand the use of acupuncture for populations in need by creating sustainable Acupuncture clinics. We also share knowledge of acupuncture with other healthcare providers serving these areas and novices who wish to learn acupuncture as a vocation, by providing basic and advanced training programs. To bring the knowledge and medicine of acupuncture to people in underserved communities is not only the mission of Acupuncture Ambassadors but my personal life’s mission as well.
Acupuncture and Traditional Asian medicine have their roots in rural community medicine. It can successfully treat people with acute and chronic illness and also serve as preventative medicine worldwide. Acupuncture is a very effective treatment for the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and boosts immunity in immune compromised patients. These are global health issues and we have the medicine to make a difference. Treating patients with emotional issues has been the focus of my own acupuncture practice in New York as I had experienced PTSD firsthand when I was close to the events of 911. It was acupuncture that played an integral role in my own healing. Now treating PTSD is a major mission focus of Acupuncture Ambassadors.
Achieving the goals of any charitable organization takes hard work and planning. It is also essential to seek compatible long-term partnerships with individuals and organizations that share similar humanitarian goals. The cooperation of our individual and organizational partners, sponsors, volunteers and supporters must also be beneficial to all involved especially the patients we have dedicated ourselves to treat.
I look forward to connecting with you and finding ways we can work together.
