Course Description Go here for more information

This NCCAOM accredited one-day course will prepare you to volunteer with the Mountain Regional Medical Reserve Corps Acupuncture Team (MRMRCAT) in western North Carolina. MRMRCAT is a growing team of licensed acupuncturists, established in 2017, whose sole mission is to provide stress-relieving treatments to first responders and public health workers in western North Carolina.

The licensed-acupuncturist instructor will guide participants through the utilization of the NADA/5PP protocol, as well as the practical acupuncture skills needed for quick, group-style treatments under challenging circumstances in the field. The training will also provide an introduction to the Medical Reserve Corps and the Mountain Regional response teams. Other course components consist of emergency management basics, work environments, deployments, and safety. Because the team is integrated with the Western North Carolina Peer Support Network and the regional Critical Incident Stress Management groups, participants will learn about these groups and how these systems can work together to increase resiliency amongst first responders.

Our public safety & first responder workers carry so much stress – ranging from regular daily job duties that contribute to long-term compounding of stress, to the most impactful, devastating events that can be imagined. Willpower and dedication keep our first responders functional, but they are statistically likely to experience deterioration of health, family complications, and often a decline in work performance.

The MRC Acupuncture Team reaches out to regional mental health response teams, offering regular group treatments. Our acupuncturist-volunteers provide an ability to make a real difference in the communities of Western N.C. Team members may also have the opportunity to deploy to large-scale events throughout the state.

** This course is reserved for acupuncturists in western North Carolina that are interested in team participation.
