Omaha, NE (PRWEB) September 10, 2014
Nebraska Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine Association (NAOMA) is hosting the First Annual NAOMA Fundraiser Extravaganza! The Extravaganza will be held Sunday, September 14 2014 from 1- 5PM and will be held at Thirteen Moons Acupuncture – 1002 N 72nd St. Omaha, NE 68102. The fundraiser is being held to help raise money for a lobbyist to help in NAOMA’s efforts to promote and protect safe Acupuncture in the state of Nebraska.
It’s not JUST Needles! The fundraiser is geared towards education and fun! Free to the public, people are encouraged to come and learn how Acupuncture is just one small part of a very ancient yet effective, preventative, health focused medicine and how choosing properly trained practitioners increases that effectiveness and support the NAOMA mission by donating to the cause.
The event will feature a panel of experts, booths sharing individual practices and demonstrations, Qi Gong with Joel Dunning, Licensed Acupuncturist and even a yoga session. Thirteen Moons Acupuncture, Ginger Acupuncture, Natural Rehab, and TCM Acupuncture Clinic will be showcased. The NAOMA Fundraiser Extravaganza will also feature a silent auction with Health Baskets and Services from showcased businesses, a Powerocks portable charging basket, and a free one-year storage unit rental from Urban Storage.
The Licensed Acupuncturists involved in NAOMA are seeking to introduce to the state legislature a proposal to remove from Nebraska’s statute the doctor visit requirement in order to enjoy the benefits of acupuncture. The hope is to have a Senator carry the bill for the 2015 Legislative Session.
Licensed Acupuncturist and current president of NAOMA, Donna Huber says, “We hope to raise enough money to pay a lobbyist to get our bill before the 2015 Legislative Session but more importantly, the few truly Licensed Acupuncturists in Nebraska want to share our passion about TCM so that our community understands what we do, why we do it and how it can help them on the road to wellness!”
Nebraska Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Association was created in 2009 by a small group of Licensed Acupuncturists (L.Ac.) in an effort to educate our community and promote the full art and science of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Nebraska Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Association (NAOMA) is a 501-C6 non-profit professional organization dedicated to preserving and promoting the integrity of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
