The purpose of this community service is to provide an introduction, understanding, and experience to the people of Wonosari Village regarding complementary therapies, especially acupuncture as way to improve health status. This community service consists of four activities: education on various complementary therapies, introduction and administration of acupuncture therapy, health checks and treatment education, and also education and mental health examinations. Based on the results of the evaluation, all participants rated this service activity were very useful, the participants became more familiar with the types of complementary therapies, especially being able to feel the changes after getting acupuncture therapy directly.
