an Acupunkik Oath

Shared by a comrade from Poke Community Acupuncture in Vancouver, B.C.


Because acupuncture does not have to be 
expensive in order to be effective ∂ Because
military budgets balloon while health care is 
cut ∂ Because nothing breaks through the
isolation of pain, illness and depression like 
healing in a room with other humans ∂ Because
our favourite way to spread the word about how 
well acupuncture works is to make it available to
people ∂ Because we are pleased to challenge 
the notion of value being attached to price
∂ Because there aren’t enough spaces where 
strangers switch off cell phones and slumber
side by side ∂ Because for thousands of years 
acupuncture has been practiced in groups ∂
Because returning acupuncture to its roots makes 
us the happiest of humble radicals ∂ Because
the vast majority of us love our work so much we 
couldn’t imagine doing anything else –
We are a part of the community acupuncture movement.
