On Monday, January 30th, Frederick’s own The Turning Point Community Acupuncture Center will be hosting a screening of a documentary at MDL Holiday Cinemas on Baughmans Lane. Co-produced by The Turning Point’s Jessica Feltz, the film, entitled Community Acupuncture: The Calmest Revolution Ever Staged,
follows six diverse community acupuncture patients and shows the impact of affordable acupuncture on their lives and communities. Lindstrom tells the story of the community acupuncture movement: how a small group of loud-mouthed, over-educated, under-employed activists and a massive group of ordinary people with average incomes revolutionized healthcare services by using large empty rooms, old recliner chairs, and two-cent needles.
Doors at MDL Holiday Cinemas will open at 6:00 pm on January 30th, with the screening beginning at 6:30. Tickets for the documentary are $10 and are redeemable for one free acupuncture session at The Turning Point. Tickets can be purchased in advance at The Turning Point, 243 W Patrick Street in downtown Frederick. They will also be available in advance and at the door at MDL Holiday Cinemas.
There is also a very nice article in the FNP today about Jessica, the clinic and the documentary. I can’t think why I would need it but in the interest of full disclosure, I have been a patient at The Turning Point for a while now and was in the clinic the day the camera crew was filming scenes for the documentary, although I don’t think the camera ever made it over to me.
This is a great opportunity to support a local business owner and to perhaps learn about and try something new!
