With everything going on in the world around us, I want to take a moment to pause and invite your evolving health in service to a community that is near to my heart. Ellicott City, Maryland was devastated by a flash flood this past Saturday night (click for story and videos) and the damage is the worst the town has ever seen. This town and its community holds a special place in my heart. I lived in Ellicott City while in acupuncture school, met my wife Amy there, and had a Wellness center from 2005-2008 called The Well: a community space for Yoga and the healing arts. I am so saddened to see the town destroyed. Friends have lost businesses and homes and cars and pets. A state of emergency was declared for the town.
The rebuild will take years, if they are able to recover. The town is in a flood area and so many had insurance, however flood insurance only covers for up to 1 foot and the waters rose to over 5. Climate change and irresponsible development upstream have heavily contributed to the intensity of the flood.
To help the recovery efforts I am offering a special community acupuncture session on Monday August 8th 6-8 pm. All the proceeds will go to the people and businesses in Ellicott City who are making a valiant effort to recover from the flood.
Community Acupuncture Sessions are the $35 each. Bring your friends and help spread the word! You'll feel deep relief and your money will go to a good cause. If you are moved to donate more it would be greatly appreciated. **for those who are new patients please fill out the new patient form. Thanks
If you cannot make the session you can donate directly here: www.HelpEllicottCity.com
Thanks so much,
watch this amazing rescue
