Feeling better after my second treatment. THANKS
Thank you for seeing me on such short notice! Terrific clinic, and I feel wonderful!
There are some amazing things happening at Bhakti Wellness Center! . . . . . . #bhaktiwellnesscenter #acupuncture #maculardegeneration
So... I've been laying so low b/c I had a spinal fluid leak, resulting in crazy-bad, postural headaches every frickin' day since December – until Now (from a lumbar puncture.) With the help of daily acupuncture, the headaches are finally gone! Yay! My heartfelt ThAnKs go out to the crew Berkeley Acupuncture Project Sierra-Maria. Jorge. Julia. Vignesh & Mark. Your skills & empathy, care and patience lead me out nearly four months of deep, dark pain. Sending much gratitude!
Jolene is amazing and BAP is generally well organized. Jolene is highly skilled as an acupuncturist, nurturing, kind, funny, down to earth and deeply compassionate. Jolene is also a true professional. She is always 100% attentive, engaging and present. In short, she is an acupuncturist-angel. That said, my impression of BAP where I have now been seen for approximately a month 1-3 times per week, was tainted today by the very strange and demeaning manner of Jorge. In short, I felt absolutely bullied by him. I had taken a sheet by mistake instead of a blanket to cover myself, having never been told not to take the sheets, and having thought it was a blanket at first. I was covered under it when Jorge came out and stared at me blankly, then said "Wooooooohw" and walked away shaking his head in disgust. I immediately thought I must've done something wrong. I was dumbfounded by having been shamed and harassed by someone who I was coming to for healing. I chose to leave and not be treated. I will be giving a letter in more detail to the managers. I am unsure if I want to be treated here again after this experience which was deeply troubling. Because I like Jolene so much, this would be a sad and disappointing end to my care at BAP. However bad his morning may have been and however much he disliked the look of me, for reasons unknown to me, he had no business to treat me as he did. Does he not like women? Is it cultural? I am baffled. I would suggest that BAP put a sign by the middle station letting folks know not to take blankets or sheets from there if this is against the rules.

BAP goes to Hollywood! Well, not really. But we made this cool video to show new patients what to do when they come for their initial visit (and to remind our regulars about some important clinic policies). Our receptionists are smiling a lot more than they usually do now that they don't have to say everything the video does a gazillion times a day! Thanks so much to our friendly neighborhood videographer, Kim Aronson, for putting it together!

BAP's laundry baskets quickly fill up with sheets, blankets, and hand towels each week, and we need help! During flu season, we wash about 15 loads per week!

We even provide the detergent. If you're interested, please email us at [email protected] with LAUNDRY MAVEN in the subject line. Thanks!

Dear Friends of BAP. Downtown Berkeley is facing the unfortunate arrival of White Supremacists, Neo-Nazis, and other goons next Sunday, August 27th. The clinic is two blocks from the park where they will be gathering. We are struggling with what to do. We would love to keep the clinic open as a safe haven for our community to come in and live a moment of "Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me," but of course we want everyone to be safe. AND we don't want the Nazis to win by shutting down our town. What do you think? Should we stay open and be ready to shut down if things go south and start to infringe on our street (a main street in downtown Berkeley), or do we close for the day? Thanks for chiming in!

We're turning 8! Celebrate with us!

Acupuncture Therapy in a Group Setting for Chronic Pain. - PubMed - NCBI

Hey, even PubMed is starting to take notice of how fabulous community acupuncture is for chronic pain!

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=Acupuncture+Therapy+in+a+Group+Setting+for+Chronic+Pain
CONCLUSIONS.:
Acupuncture therapy offered in the group setting was effective in reducing pain severity, pain interference, and depression in patients with chronic neck, back, or shoulder pain or osteoarthritis. Benefit persisted through the 24-week measure despite no additional treatment. This finding has potentially important implications for improving access to effective acupuncture treatment for patients with limited financial resources.
