Healing Warriors Program partners with VFW Longs Peak Post 2601

Fort Collins, CO – March 15, 2017 – Thanks to generous funding from Wyatt’s Wet Goods, Healing Warriors Program and Longmont VFW 2601 Longs Peak Post are pleased to announce a partnership for a free veteran’s healing therapy clinic launching Saturday, March 18, 2017. The free veteran’s clinic will operate monthly from 9 am to 1 pm (0900 to 1300) at the Longmont National Guard Armory located at 1512 North Main Street, Longmont, CO, home of Battery A, 3rd Battalion, 157th Field Artillery Regiment.

This free veteran’s clinic supports a joint core goal of aiding service members restore their quality of life. Healing Warriors Program provides Acupuncture, CranioSacral Therapy, and Healing Touch Therapy in support of veteran’s health and wellness goals. The Healing Warriors Program clinic in Fort Collins provides services 5 days a week, 9 am – 5 pm and has delivered over 6k clinic sessions since opening July of 2013.  The Longmont satellite pop-up clinic will enable local Longmont area veterans obtain services closer to home.

“The need for non-narcotic care options for our service members is high. Pain management and post traumatic stress disorder are roadblocks in the veteran’s path towards restoration of quality of life,” says Healing Warriors Program Executive Director and co-founder, Ana Yelen.

Raul Shockley, Commander of Longmont VFW 2601 Longs Peak Post, agrees with the need to expand care offerings for our veterans. “We are currently moving our post in new directions,” says Commander Shockley. “Placing our efforts into rebuilding our post to meet the needs and expectations of our newer more diverse veteran family, guaranteeing a voice for veterans regardless of age, gender or conflict. VFW Longs Peak Post 2601 invites our veterans to take this opportunity to stop by and talk to us about participating in this exciting time of rebuilding and reestablishing service programs for our community of veterans.”

This free clinic is made possible by funding provided by Wyatt’s Wet Goods in Longmont.  The team at Wyatt’s is passionate about serving our Longmont Veteran’s community. “We at Wyatt’s are proud to be allowed to help give back to those that served and protected our freedoms through this program. Our hopes are that it provides relief to those in pain or dealing with PTSD, and that they may return to as normal of a life as possible without narcotics,” say Dennis, Joe and the crew at Wyatt’s.
