Hosting a group stress relief event

We are excited that you are considering hosting a group stress relief event. Your friends, family, or colleagues will thank you for helping them feel calm, sleep more soundly and have a sense of inner strength.

What happens at a group stress relief event?

Attendees are treated in a group, sitting up in chairs, fully clothed. An acupuncturist will place up to five small, sterilized disposable needles into specific sites on each attendee’s ear. The recipients sit quietly in a group setting for 15-45 minutes.

Attendees will need to fill out consent forms provided by Amy prior to receiving acupuncture. If someone does not want to receive acupuncture, they can still sit with and benefit from the group.

Amy can present about acupuncture, a specific topic and/or answer questions before or after the stress relief session.

What benefits will the attendees notice?

Attendees may notice the following benefits from the treatment:

• Increased calmness and less agitation,

• Relief from stress and emotional trauma,

• Better sleep, and

• A discovery of inner quiet and strength.

It is also a general balancing treatment. The root cause is treated in addition to the symptoms.

What are advantage of group ear acupuncture treatments using this protocol?

The benefit to the group is larger than the benefit would be if each attendee were treated individually. “Our bodies contain an autonomic mechanism to mimic or unite with a pulse greater than our own – speeding up or slowing down to sync up with a stronger external rhythm. This concept is called ‘entrainment,” explains Frank Lipman, M.D.

This protocol does not require any talking. Talking can be hard if you feel embarrassed about your feelings, aren’t ready to put your feelings into words, or aren’t even aware of you are experiencing them. This protocol is also effective even when there are language barriers.

 What do I need to provide?

You just need to provide a space with enough chairs to seat the number of attendees you have invited. We’ can treat in conference rooms, churches, gyms, yoga studios, and waiting rooms, as well as health clinics.

Amy will bring the supplies needed for acupuncture. You may also want to provide appetizers/snacks for people to enjoy together after the session, but it is not required.

Amy’s malpractice insurance covers these events regardless of location. She can send you a copy in advance of the event.
