What a GREAT and POWERFUL Weekend!!!…..
Last weekend on Friday and Saturday at the South-side Armory in Chicago, SaTerra Vishnu, DOM and Frank Yurasek, PhD were in attendance to provide Auricular Acupuncture Treatment for PAIN, to the over 500 veterans who made their way to South-side Armory to get support services from community service organizations and those committed to providing our veteran population with the care they are due for their service to our country!
The two day event offered those veterans who participated, new insights on how they can find non-toxic pain relief (esp. for chronic neck, knees, low back and sleep issues), associated with their service, and how this simple and effective treatment can be learned and integrated, BY EACH AND EVERY VETERAN, for themselves and their families!!
A BIG THANK YOU!! :-))) Goes out to: The “Jim’s” and “Gabi” for all the support and effort brought forth to make this event SUCH A SUCCESS!!

Some veterans, including service members at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, have attempted to cope with the challenges they face through art therapy.
Below, take a look at images captured by National Geographic photographer Lynn Johnson of these veterans and their loved ones:
