Wellness Day at USC

Yo San’s Sally Goluboff, L.Ac and Matthew Brand, L.Ac had the opportunity to treat over 23 people in 3 hours, about half of whom had never received acupuncture. Despite some apprehension on the part of a few participants, almost all of those who tried it left with significant relief from their symptoms.

Yo San University of TCM was proud to participate in USC’s Staff Wellness Day, which took place on October 15, 2014, at Norris Medical Center in East Los Angeles. Staff members, including nurses, interns and other vital workers were treated to an array of complementary medicine modalities, including yoga, massage and, of course, acupuncture. Yo San’s Sally Goluboff, L.Ac and Matthew Brand, L.Ac had the opportunity to treat over 23 people in 3 hours, about half of whom had never received acupuncture. Despite some apprehension on the part of a few participants, almost all of those who tried it left with significant relief from their symptoms. This was a great chance for folks working long, hard hours treating cancer patients to get some care of their own—especially a type of care that they wouldn't have considered otherwise.
Two rooms in the Norris Cancer Center were provided for the treatments. Three chairs were available to patients in each room, allowing for a Community Acupuncture style to be employed—meaning points located on the head, limbs and extremities were used while the patient remained seated in a slightly reclining chair. Treatments averaged about 15 minutes, and the conditions that were addressed included pain, muscular tension, and stress. Instead of taking the time to try and convince them that TCM works, the treatments were able to speak for themselves! We can only hope that YSU has more opportunities like this in the near future to bring more medical professionals to our medicine.
