In aftermath of stressful election, acupuncturist offering free treatments to those in 'helping professions'
It’s a chilly Monday afternoon, just around lunchtime, and Stephanie Stuhlsatz is letting her friend stick three tiny needles along the ridges of her left ear. The friend is Julie Bear Don’t Walk, a licensed acupuncturist, and in the past two weeks she has been doling out similar treatments, free of charge, to folks like Stuhlsatz, a certified massage therapist, and others in the “helping professions.”
