Upcoming Cissy Majebe celebration is well deserved

Your recent Wellness issues were an excellent reminder of the pioneer role that acupuncturist Cissy Majebe played in launching the vibrant alternative therapy industry that now thrives in Asheville [Jan. 25 and Feb. 1 Xpress]. Her courage and determination in the face of state authorities paved the way for legalizing the excellent care available in our area.

The Board of the Traditions Acupuncture Foundation will celebrate Cissy's many contributions to health care in this community with a fun “Acu-Roast” at Highland Brewing Company on Tuesday, April 17 from 6:30 to 10 p.m. (light food, beverages and dancing included). All proceeds will go to the foundation to help provide Chinese medicine to underserved populations in our community. We invite everyone to save the date and have fun celebrating Cissy's 60th birthday.

For more information on how folks can help make this event a success, they can email Marilou Appleton at butterflie143@aol.com or call 231-6222 and speak with Lissa Juedemann at the Foundation. We hope folks will make a point of attending and get a chance to “needle” Cissy back after all these years.
