Volunteering as an Acupuncturist

Volunteering as an Acupuncturist
Qi, the vital force which permeates everything, also links us with our surroundings and other people. What better way to enhance the flow of qi than by volunteering your time and skills as an acupuncture practitioner?

Why Volunteer?

Volunteers are key in enabling charities or not-for-profit organisations to achieve their vision of a more caring and cohesive society. In addition, many organisations do not have the resources to employ the wide range of skilled professionals their clients could need. 

How You Can Volunteer

There are many opportunities to volunteer at home or abroad as an acupuncturist. Depending on the organisation, the people you treat could be homeless people, indigenous people, asylum seekers who have experienced trauma as a result of persecution in their country of origin, or even young single mothers living in refuges. Many of these people don’t have the resources to access quality holistic care.
All organisations will require that you have appropriate qualifications, experience and first aid training. In exchange, you will be supported by the organisation and given training, briefing about your clients and the appropriate security.

A Rewarding Experience

By volunteering you are bringing much needed experience and skills to people who need it most, and in return you will rewarded with the knowledge that you have hade a difference in individual’s lives. You will be giving quality holistic care to people who may not be able to afford it, or through lack of knowledge, are not aware of how beneficial acupuncture can be. The qi just keeps on flowing.
