Tampa, FL — Thursday, May 1st, Community Acupuncture clinics around the world begin their 11th Annual May Day Celebration by offering free acupuncture. Seminole Heights Community Acupuncture will join in the celebration providing free acupuncture 2-8PM at the clinic.
May Day is an annual holiday that celebrates late 19th c. Americans' efforts to have an eight-hour workday. Because of its significance in the labor movement, May Day has become an occasion not only of international celebration, but also widespread protest. Protest high prices. Protest inaccessibility to health care and healthy life options. Protest by taking care of yourself!
