Many Rivers will also be collecting donations to support the Brain Injury Association of Connecticut during the week of March 10 - 16. March is Brain Injury Awareness Month. Brain injuries can affect anyone, from student athletes to veterans. Many Rivers is partnering with the Brain Injury Association of Connecticut to educate our community about the importance of preventing brain injuries. Brain injuries are often accompanied by psychological symptoms including headaches, anxiety, and insomnia. Acupuncture can help ease these symptoms in the brain injury survivor, and also can provide relaxation and stress-relief for the survivor’s caregivers.
Many Rivers is part of the community acupuncture movement, which is working to make health care affordable and accessible. Acupuncture can be effective for all kinds of pain, including back pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, knee pain, and heel pain. Acupuncture can also help with internal disorders such as digestive problems, allergies, and gynecological issues.
The clinic is located at 44 Bloomfield Avenue in Windsor center. For more information, contact Carrie Sawtell at (860) 683-0011 or go to http://www.manyriversacupuncture.com.
