G1NBC LIVE broadcasting from 10 am to 2 pm
Huron Valley AMVETS Post 2006 is sponsoring “STRESS: Healing the Invisible Wound Holistically,” from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, for veterans, first res-ponders, police, fire, counselors, medical personnel and members of the general public at Lakeland High School, 1630 Bogie Lake Road, White Lake.
Author Diana Ruiz is keynote speaker, set to talk about a unique method in treating depression called effective freedom technique. The method, she said, involves “tapping on pressure points on the face and hands and paying attention to how you feel.”
Ruiz said studies show eight out of 10 veterans test negative for PTSD after three one-hour treatments. “It breaks the stress current in the body-brain connection,” she said. “It’s very gentle and simple. It’s like acupuncture without the needles.”
Tickets are free to active duty military, veterans, first res-ponders, police, fire and medical personnel. Military, police and fire nonprofit support groups are welcome to attend.
