Volunteering

The Barefoot Acupuncture Movement exists because of the dedicated efforts of hundreds of volunteers since we started in 2011. Our Barefoot Schools can offer free scholarships for the majority of students because of volunteer acupuncture educators.  Refugees in the border region receive free acupuncture because of the work of volunteer providers and student interns.

MESSAGE FROM

OUR FOUNDER

“The projects our students have created show us that even the most marginalized and underserved communities can use acupuncture to build resilience and self-sufficiency in response to violence, poverty, and injustice. It’s about partnership with people. It’s about accompaniment as they take control of their healthcare.”
