Latest Japanese Acupuncture Video Update

Welcome to the latest Japanese Acupuncture Video Update

As you may know, over the last week Southeast Queensland has been inundated by devastating floodwaters.

There is little to say that hasn’t already been said regarding the impact of this extraordinary natural event.

The knock on effects will last for a number of years with lives lost, much important infrastructure destroyed, businesses, and private residences inundated by the muddy waters of the Brisbane and Bremmer Rivers not to mention the maelstrom that occurred in the Lockyer Valley, Toowoomba and rural regions further west and north of the capital.

75% of Queensland has been declared a disaster area.

Many, many people have been affected by the floods, including  Andrew our world acupuncture videographer and his partner Efrat, who not only have had their  recently purchased home inundated but are still unable to practice as a result of the massive disruption to electricity supply.

Greg Bantick along with several other acupuncture colleagues has set up an acupuncture recovery clinic for victims of the floods.!/pages/Acupuncture-Recovery-Clinic/146250205429319

Amidst the devastation there has been an incredible uprising of community spirit, one of the very few benefits resulting from this natural phenomena.
