Jodi Sta. Maria happily shared good news with her Instagram followers today, October 19. The actress, who is also a student of Psychology, announced that she is now a certified acupuncture detoxification specialist.
"Today, I am a certified acupuncture detoxification specialist! After a week of intense training, I found a better appreciation for those actively practicing this. When you start your day healing people from 8am to 5pm, you realize that this is hard work. It is when we meet others' needs that our needs are satisfied in the process. By healing an individual, you heal a community. You need not be a medical practitioner to do this - all you have to be is someone who cares for another person's well being," Jodi said in her post.
According to the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) website, acupuncture detoxification is the use of ear acupuncture for recovery from addictions, stress and trauma.
Aside from being a wellness advocate and college student, Jodi is also busy with an upcoming teleserye and two movie projects.
