Feb 05   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
Today's charity is Michael the Archangel, a Pregnancy Resource Center.

Michael the Archangel is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organizations dedicated to the protection of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. The various pregnancy support services offered by Michael the Archangel are focused on aiding the spiritual and material needs of every mother and the child she carries. We also provide support services to families of young children, as well as educational services for the community.
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!

Feb 19   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
I am also collecting clean, empty egg cartons for Marion-Polk Foodshare's Table of Plenty.   Full ones work too :)
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!

Other program criteria:
1.  Seats are only provided to parents or legal guardians, who must be present to obtain the seat.  Only one seat per child.
2.  The child receiving the seat must be present unless the baby is not yet born.
3.  The vehicle in which the child travels must be brought to the car seat check.

Apr 01   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
Today's charity is Michael the Archangel, a Pregnancy Resource Center.

Michael the Archangel is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organizations dedicated to the protection of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. The various pregnancy support services offered by Michael the Archangel are focused on aiding the spiritual and material needs of every mother and the child she carries. We also provide support services to families of young children, as well as educational services for the community.
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!

May 06   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
Today's charity is Michael the Archangel, a Pregnancy Resource Center.

Michael the Archangel is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organizations dedicated to the protection of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. The various pregnancy support services offered by Michael the Archangel are focused on aiding the spiritual and material needs of every mother and the child she carries. We also provide support services to families of young children, as well as educational services for the community.
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!

Jun 03   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
Today's charity is Michael the Archangel, a Pregnancy Resource Center.

Michael the Archangel is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organizations dedicated to the protection of human life from the moment of conception until natural death.

Jul 15   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
I am also collecting clean, empty egg cartons for Marion-Polk Foodshare's Table of Plenty.   Full ones work too :)
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
I am also collecting clean, empty egg cartons for Marion-Polk Foodshare's Table of Plenty.   Full ones work too :)
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Oct 07   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
Today's charity is Michael the Archangel, a Pregnancy Resource Center.

Michael the Archangel is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organizations dedicated to the protection of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. The various pregnancy support services offered by Michael the Archangel are focused on aiding the spiritual and material needs of every mother and the child she carries. We also provide support services to families of young children, as well as educational services for the community.
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Nov 12   Car Seat Check-up Event sponsored by Salem Health
Want to learn how to install your child's car safety seat?  Trained technicians will teach you how.  We also check for recalls, size and age best fit.  We can receive and recycle any expired car seats during the check-up event.

To be eligible for the Car Seat Assistance Program, the child or the parent/guardian needs to show a current card for WIC, OHP or Oregon Trail programs.  At the car seat check-up event, the technicians will confirm that there is a need for a new car seat.  

Other program criteria:
1.  Seats are only provided to parents or legal guardians, who must be present to obtain the seat.  Only one seat per child.
2.  The child receiving the seat must be present unless the baby is not yet born.
3.  The vehicle in which the child travels must be brought to the car seat check.
4.  Parents and guardians will be taught to correctly install and use the car seat.

If you are looking for information on car seat laws, safety recommendations, or other clinics please go to:

Nov 18   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
I am also collecting clean, empty egg cartons for Marion-Polk Foodshare's Table of Plenty.   Full ones work too :)
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!

Dec 16   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
I am also collecting clean, empty egg cartons for Marion-Polk Foodshare's Table of Plenty.   Full ones work too :)
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!

Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!

Apr 07   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
Today's charity is Michael the Archangel, a Pregnancy Resource Center.

Michael the Archangel is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organizations dedicated to the protection of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. The various pregnancy support services offered by Michael the Archangel are focused on aiding the spiritual and material needs of every mother and the child she carries. We also provide support services to families of young children, as well as educational services for the community.
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.
