Learn How Acupuncture Can Help ET at Our October 5th Meeting!

Saturday, October 5, 2019
1:00 – 3:00 p.m.

 The Hospital of Central Connecticut
100 Grand Street, New Britain, CT

ACUPUNCTURE AND ESSENTIAL TREMOR
presented by Edwin Brown, LAC

Our October 5th meeting will focus on acupuncture: its history and modern uses, as well as how acupuncture can be a valuable tool in specifically treating Essential Tremor.

Edwin Brown received his Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the New England School of Acupuncture (NESA). In addition to his own practice Healing Ways Acupuncture, Edwin has practicing privileges at Hartford Hospital through his affiliation with the Department of Integrative Medicine.

During his time at NESA, Edwin studied and gained clinical experience in the fields of Japanese acupuncture, Chinese acupuncture, and Chinese herbal medicine. He has spent the last 15 years working in both private clinical and hospital settings. In addition, Edwin spent more than 16 years studying the arts of Judo and Jiujitsu, as well as several years studying and practicing Tai Chi. A thorough understand of how the flow of energy (Ki) affects the body is a central and crucial aspect in both fighting and healing arts. Studying these disciplines has enabled Edwin to more thoroughly understand Ki and has thereby enhanced his ability to better serve his patients on their healing journeys, and on their paths back to realizing a more balanced life.
