SALIDA – Free Neuro-Acupuncture for Veterans
January 1 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm| Free
Neuro-Acupuncture offers new hope to Veterans through nationwide initiative to offer a free treatment. Neuroacupuncture practitioners across the USA will unite to offer a complementary treatment to veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury, concussion, ongoing physical pain, and other related symptoms. Sponsored by the Neuro-Acupuncture Institute (NAI), licensed providers in more than 15 states will join forces with Drs. Jason and Linda Hao, the founders of NAI, to give back to Veterans. According to the US Department of Veterans Affairs, between 10-20% of US veterans suffer from PTSD in a given year.
“For me, Neuroacupuncture treated my PTSD, anxiety, insomnia, appetite, mood, pain, and overall mental and physical health. With the incredible success I had, I want to encourage my fellow Veterans to find a specialized practitioner near you,” said Zac Ruttman, who was wounded by an IED while serving in Iraq/Afghanistan and received treatment from Dr. Jason Hao.
In addition to treating symptoms affiliated with PTSD and TBI, Neuroacupuncture is very effective in treating disorders of the central nervous system, such as stroke, Autism and Parkinson’s Disease. Neuroacupuncture pioneers Drs. Jason and Linda Hao have dedicated their careers to perfecting the treatment they learned in China by combining traditional Chinese needling techniques and scalp acupuncture with Western knowledge of neurology, neuroscience, and neurological rehabilitation. Treatments take less than an hour and patients often experience results with just a few needles.
In 2017, the Acupuncture for our Heroes Act required acupuncture accessibility for veterans as a viable treatment option through the Veterans Administration. The Institute launched the same year, providing training in the art and skill of Neuro-acupuncture to licensed acupuncturists, Doctors of Oriental Medicine, and physicians.

“Our veterans have given so much for their country and in many ways are still fighting our nation’s battles, but they’re doing it from inside their own bodies and minds now,” said Jason Hao, President of the Neuro-Acupuncture Institute. “But they’re not alone. This modality aids veterans’ recovery, improving the quality of life for them and their loved ones.”
