Acupuncture Camp Organised

Our Healthcare section organised two day acupuncture camp in a hall of Namgyal Monastery. The acupuncture was conducted by a team of experts from Humanitrad (Humanitarian Health Care in Chinese Medicine), France led by its president, Mr. Patrick Shan. Mr. Patrick is also the head of Chinese Ethnomedicine Development Research & Education, France. Humanitrad has conducted such camps in many different countries especially in Africa and Latin America. They have been visiting Dharamsala for the last few years as well.

During the two day camp at McLeod Ganj, 159 patients received treatment for joint pains, muscular pains, arthritis, rheumatism etc. using acupuncture and cupping therapy. At the end of two days, they proposed to teach the basics of ancient form of alternative treatment methods to the home nurses of Tibet Charity. They promised They promised to provide in depth training to these girls when they return to Dharamsala next year

We thank Mr. Patrick and his team for kindly taking out time to serve the people here in Dharamsala. Our patients on these two days consisted of Tibetans, Indians as well as many foreigners.
