Chapter Meeting
Get the Point of Acupuncture
Joe Burchik, Jr., Diplomat of Acupuncture


Join us for an interactive session on acupuncture.

Joe Burchik is nationally certified with 15 years experience in acupuncture, needleless acupuncture, cold laser, herbal medicine & applied kinesiology. He has studied in both the

U.S.and China to learn the healing techniques of acupuncture - one of the oldest forms of healing known. 

Mr. Burchik will also show us an alternative option to mammography. Thermal imaging is a painless breast screening that is 100% safe because there is no radiation or body contact. Thermal imaging is the only non-invasive way to image pain or pathology anywhere on the body and is FDA approved.
