How we started
We arrived in Northwest Wisconsin at a time when there was a dearth of local supportive health care services. Community members would travel for hours to gain access to specialized health care. In Sawyer County alone, for instance, the cancer "rate is statistically significant...above the state rate."1 To fill this void, staff were trained in oncology esthetics by Oncology Spa Solutions®, oncology massage by Tracy Walton & Associates, and are recognized by S4OM as a Preferred Practitioner to provide supportive cancer care services to affected community members.
To further the effort of broadening supportive local health care services, HealingGround became a Community Service Clinic of Acupuncturists Without Borders. We offer a simple treatment of five tiny pellets in each ear that will be effective in relieving stress, pain, and anxiety. The pellets can be worn for three (3) days and massaged throughout the day when stressed, in pain, or anxious. Our Wellness Clinic is open every third Thursday. Services are provided free of charge. All Wellness Clinics are hosted by HealingGround located at 10586 Main Street in Hayward, WI (across from Peoples Bank)
