Santa Barbara MRC
Three Treasures Acupuncture & Wellness Center is just one of many local acupuncturists who collaborate with the Santa Barbara Medical Reserve Corps (SBMRC). The acupuncture team responds to local and national emergencies and provides free ear acupuncture to first responders and residents affected by emergency events. These treatments help to reduce stress, anxiety, and the physical & emotional effects of traumatic experiences. SBMRC acupuncturists provided ear acupuncture to first responders, students and community members following the 2014 Isla Vista shooting rampage.
Doctors Without Walls
Three Treasures Acupuncture & Wellness Center partners with Doctors Without Walls-Santa Barbara Street Medicine (DWW-SBSM) to provide free acupuncture treatments to the homeless female population in Santa Barbara County. Women who are homeless are an exceptionally vulnerable portion of the population. Many of them struggle with psychological, emotional and physical pain. Acupuncture is one of the more popular treatment options offered through the DWW-SBSM program. Click here to learn more about DWW-SBSM and get involved.
Every year, Three Treasures Acupuncture & Wellness Center sponsors 2-5 patients to be privately treated at no cost (referral basis only). Our mission is to provide acupuncture treatments that help individuals experiencing Post Traumatic Stress and extreme anxiety. Participants receive ongoing treatments that alleviate many of the symptoms associated with these syndromes.
