Third Root is offering the following holistic healing services by donation Mondays - Thursdays during business hours: Yoga Classes Community Acupuncture (in a group setting) Herbal Remedies We developed this "Post-Election Trauma Support" as a direct response to the trauma symptoms (emotional and physical) their clients, many of whom come from marginalized communities, including immigrants people of color we are and trans folks as well as survivors, were experiencing in the days immediately following the election. During this period, all classes and community acupuncture treatments are offered at low and no-cost, however community members are encouraged to donate to services, or pay their usual sliding scale fee as they can. Mention "Post Election Trauma Support" to receive these services. "Between Election Day and today I've treated dozens of people in my acupuncture practice at Third Root and every single person has mentioned the election as a major chief complaint related to digestive problems, asthma attacks, joint and muscular pain, panic attacks, insomnia, nightmares, PTSD, depression, fear of attack, and more," says Geleni Fontaine, Worker-Owner and Acupuncturist at Third Root. "People are expressing their trauma in different ways including weeping, muscle tension and spasm, restlessness in treatment, frustration and short fuses, and impaired focus and memory." In addition to this "Post-Election Trauma Support," a YouCaring fund has been set up by community members to help us provide low and no-cost healing services to marginalized communities such as people of color, refugees, survivors, queer and trans folks, immigrants. Any amount donated to this fund supports community healing for our neighbors. For example, $15 funds one yoga session for one individual, $33 funds one community acupuncture session, and $165 funds five community acupuncture sessions. "At Third Root, we believe everyone deserves access to healing," says Emily J. Kramer, Worker-Owner and Yoga Teacher at Third Root. "We encourage everyone to seek care at this time, and we are grateful for the support of our community members who are generously sponsoring healing services for their neighbors."
