Acupuncturist Extends Helping Hand to Veterans

Share Article

Licensed acupuncturist Denise Slavich offers discounted acupuncture for U.S. veterans and active duty military personnel at her Charlotte, NC, practice.

Although licensed acupuncturist Denise Slavich works with energy in her acupuncture practice, the military is in her blood. With a father who served in the Army and Marines, brothers who served in the Navy and Air Force, and her own almost 10-year enlistment as a Naval Cryptologist, Ms. Slavich says she has always felt a kinship toward others who served in the military in the past and those who continue to serve today.

With the recent media exposure of VA health care issues, she felt compelled to turn outrage into action, and is challenging other health care practitioners to do the same.

From April 17-21, U.S. veterans and active duty personnel will receive a 40% discount on acupuncture services with Ms. Slavich at her private practice on Sharon Road in Charlotte. As a classically trained and licensed acupuncturist, Ms. Slavich hopes to help veterans who might not otherwise have access to the health care they need. "We owe a debt of gratitude to the brave men and women of the U.S. military," she said. "By extending a helping hand to those who served, each of us can make a difference in someone's life and let them know we care."

The discounted acupuncture services include new patient visits, follow-up treatments, and "NADA Treatments", a widely used ear acupuncture protocol that has proven helpful for addictions, stress/anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. For those needing follow-on treatment, Ms. Slavich will offer additional discounted treatment days for veterans and active duty personnel (dates TBA) from May through August. Veterans and active duty personnel will need to show proof of military service, and must be seen on the specified days to receive the 40% discount. This discount is not combinable with any other offers or promotions.

As one of the oldest and most widely used medical procedures in the world, acupuncture offers a safe, drug-free, and effective way to address the symptoms and underlying root of a wide range of health concerns including digestive disturbances, sleep disorders, irritability, depression, "phantom" pain, and much more. Recognized by the National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization, its popularity as a mainstream healthcare alternative continues to grow.
