 Other: I organized a meeting between a State Senator and a State Representative and several local acupuncturists. I gave them each a packet of information about acupuncture and the issues that are of interest to us. They were very receptive and now they have some faces to connect to the issues that may come up in the upcoming legislative session.

 I celebrated by offering ear bead treatments for a nominal fee of $5.00 for stress reduction or immune boosting. I did this at the health food store where I work part-time. I had literature and my cards out on a table. I did a display of herbs and other oriental medical products the store sold. The information about the day was put on the store's web site. Plus I put up posters and flyers were at the counter for the customers to take with them 2 weeks prior to the day. During the time I was at the store from 9:00a.m. - 2:00p.m., I handed out tea and candied ginger. It was a very enjoyable event.

I passed out literature to prospective patients I put a table outside my practice with a big sign that said "Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine Day Oct.24th". I also had a table sign that said, "Meet the Acupuncturist". Brochures and cards were on hand, in addition to a sweet snack, (honey to draw the crowd).

I held an open house I had half hour appointments through out the day for people to meet me and ask questions about acupuncture and their personal health concerns. They also received a free demonstration treatment.
I gave free acupuncture/herbal medicine treatments The event was listed in the calendar session of a local newspaper offering free treatments from 1 to 6 pm. We scheduled 22 patients that had never tried acupuncture before. Gave a general relaxation treatment: Shenmen,Yintang and Li4 Liv 3.
Ten of those patients called back to scjedule regular sessions
