Traditional Acupuncture of Northern Virginia is now providing:
Acupoint Comfort Care & Death Doula Services
All fees are offered on a sliding scale basis so that cost need not be a deterrent to receiving care.
Death Cafes are Back
Death Cafes provide the opportunity for people to get together to discuss a variety of topics related to death and dying. There is no set agenda or formal presentations at a Death Café. It is, instead, an opportunity to discuss whatever is on the minds of participants. Each Death Café is therefore a unique exploration of thoughts and feelings around the subject of the end of life.
Death Cafes are offered to the public free of charge and are generously sponsored by the Loudoun County Public Library System. Please join us for the conversation. As always, tea and cake will be provided.
