Bump: Peter Panken L.Ac
Peter Panken's mustache is better than this one.
I started my TCM education in New York City. I met some wonderful people there, including Peter Panken L.Ac, sweat-lodge enthusiast and all around nice guy. He was my supervisor at the Fortune Society externship, doing free NADA ear acupuncture and full-body acupuncture for recently paroled people.
Every Wednesday we would take over the community room and set up four tables and a circle of chairs. The chairs were for people getting ear acupuncture only. One day it was slow and I got the NADA protocol in my ear. About a minute after the needles were inserted, I was so relaxed felt like I was going to slide off my chair.
