The following year, the year of the Fire Monkey, we raised $4,000 for People For Acupuncture, a non-profit working to get acupuncture covered by health insurance for all Vermonters. Check back in January to purchase tickets for our 2024 fundraiser.

National Acupuncture Day
Integrative Acupuncture has hosted an annual celebration on National Acupuncture Day since 2012. On 10/23/14, we had over 80 attendees having group acupuncture, learning Tai Chi, receiving massage, eating snacks, and drinking tea. The next year on 10/22/15 we hosted another great event at our office and on the first floor at Integrative Family Medicine, Montpelier, of the University of Vermont Health Network, Central Vermont Medical Center. We had over 100 people attend and included live music and food this year. We’ve continued the tradition, and in 2022 we turned our event into an annual Congee Cookoff! Six members of our team cooked their own congee recipes for participants to try and vote on. Look out for our 2023 Congee Cookoff!
