Our Mission

Dear friends, family & community

The Village Health Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was formed in 2001 to provide affordable, quality, accessible and effective holistic/complementary health services to all.

 

Our first patients were treated by acupuncturist Chung Hee and me and were seen at the AIDS Prevention Center. We called it our “gypsy clinic” because every week we would pack our massage tables, herbs, needles and other supplies, motor over to the clinic to treat the patients. A year later I opened The Village Health Foundation clinic where we are currently located and have been servicing patients for the last 20 years.

 

Our services have expanded to include a wide range of health issues. Traditional Chinese Medicine is used to heal the body, mind and spirit which are known as the 3 treasures. The World Health Organization (WHO) has listed numerous ailments that we treat well. Those mentioned by WHO have a disproportionate rate occurrence in people of color, are high blood pressure, diabetes, prostate and breast cancer, obesity, HIV and AIDS. Our treatments, nutritional advice, and our search for finding help for those in pain or recovering from strokes or heart attacks, are unparalleled.

 

We have also partnered with Village Mindful Wellness Counseling to provide mental health counseling, cancer support and other groups.

 

I wish the best health to all of you. You deserve to feel good!

 

See you at the clinic soon,

 

Sincerely,

 

Jewel
