The first place I want to tell you about is not even in Seminole Heights proper.  But it is an oasis: a combination of what is beautiful about the Hillsborough River, civic pride, and a testament to a community efforts to be healthy.

That’s Sulphur Springs Park & Pool.  You’ve driven by it and you may even remember it.  That big gush of water shooting out of the pipe?  Those slides? The promise of manatee visits in December?…  Just this week I was given a tour of the pristine pool and park by Zumba teacher Kristoffer (Kris) Navarro.

The City is seeking historical designation for the park complex after investing in various renovations to the structures and landscape in recent years. The park’s most visually prominent feature is a two-story concrete gazebo, built in the 1920s by Grover Poole for developer Josiah T. Richardson as part of a resort. The gazebo has been restored and is open to the public. The park is bordered to the west by Interstate 275. On the opposite side is River Tower Park, with a 210-foot gothic cement water tower that also was constructed for Richardson’s resort. Sulphur Springs Pool is heated and is open year-round. A glass mosaic by artist Bruce Marsh showcases some of the history of Sulphur Springs.  (Seminole Heights Patch, 2011)

Seminole Heights Community Acupuncture, our staff, and volunteers are members of the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture. POCA is a co-operative run and fueled by co-op members who believe that acupuncture should be available to people: learn more about that here.

We see acupuncture changing lives every day. It’s simple, safe and effective, as well as the most widely used medicine in the world! Last year POCA clinics, about 200 of them in all, gave more than 1 million treatments. Our goal is to make that number 50 million treatments by the year 2020.

We support the Community Acupuncture movement with our POCA membership and our volunteer hours.

We know that acupuncture can change the world, and would love for you to join us in The Calmest Revolution Ever Staged!
