CJR Acupuncture is committed to making our community a better place by instilling our values in everything we do in the clinic, our neighbourhood, around Kelowna and throughout the Okanagan. In this section you will find Community Partnerships we have built to do just that. If you know of an event, charity or organization that we may be interested in supporting feel free to contact CJR Acupuncture for collaborations.
Mamas for Mamas
Founded in Kelowna in April 2014 as a 100% volunteer run organization Mamas for Mamas is a registered non-profit organization that supports mothers in crisis, and provides ongoing support to low income mothers in overcoming the negative impact of poverty and marginalization.
CJR Acupuncture supports Mamas for Mamas by providing discounted access to Community Acupuncture and Private TCM therapies at CJR Acupuncture as well as supporting a 'momma a month' with treatment. We have also donated a La Bassine portable birthing pool in hopes it will afford the opportunity for many mothers to be to explore home-birthing options. We collaborate with mamas in need to inform, educate and support women before conception, during pregnancy and throughout motherhood. Stay tuned for partnerships and charity events!
