BIPOC-centered after care for protesters, activists, organizers, community members

2nd and 4th Sundays, 1-5pm
Portland Playhouse Studio

(The square building on the East side of the theater)

602 NE Prescott

We (Turtle Farahat, LAc, and Sarah Farahat, certified acu-detox specialist) will be offering free group acupuncture sessions on a first-come-first-served basis at the Portland Playhouse Studio. We will be practicing the NADA ear acupuncture protocol which is historically rooted in the community care clinics organized by the Black Panther Party and the Young Lords.

(Other healing practices available depending on practitioner availability)

This is a BIPOC-centered space but this treatment is available to anyone.

Please bring a warm jacket or blanket with you. We will have windows open for ventilation.

Please take good care, and stay well hydrated before and after treatment. Try not to come on an empty stomach. We’ll be offering herbal tea and will have some snacks on hand just in case.

Sessions will last about 30 minutes.

You will be asked to sign a waiver before treatment.
