CONCORD — On Tuesday March 5th from 6-8 pm in the Library Living Room, NHTI presents the next event in its Wings of Knowledge lecture series for the 2018-19 academic year. William Halacy will share “The Benefits of Asian Medicine,” a presentation on Tai Chi and Acupuncture.
After a successful career of 26 years in public safety, Bill Halacy retired and began a new career in Asian medicine. Following six years of study and graduation from the New England School of Acupuncture with a Master's Degree in Acupuncture, he opened his practice in Concord in 2008. He is a nationally certified Diplomate in Acupuncture, certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and licensed by the State of New Hampshire.
A major component of Bill's healing practice is tai chi. He often recommends that his patients begin the study of tai chi as a form of rehabilitation, as tai chi is to Asian Medicine what physical therapy is to Western Medicine. Tai Chi can also be used for the prevention of disease.
Launched in 2001-02, Wings of Knowledge is an annual series of cultural events presented by the college. All events are free and open to the public, and take place in the Library Living Room unless otherwise noted.
