BOARDMAN — The Ohio Naturopathic Wellness Center, 755 Boardman-Canfield Road, will have an Acupuncture for a Cause fundraiser to benefit the Autism Society of Mahoning Valley.

All acupuncture sessions Friday will be donated to the Autism Society.

“Acupuncture can help with pain issues, mobility, infertility and so many other health needs,” Tim Iliff, an acupuncturist at Ohio Naturopathic Wellness Center, said in a news release. “I’m happy to be able to donate my time and expertise as a licensed acupuncturist to help clients while supporting such an amazing organization.”

The center is offering a 40 percent discount on acupuncture sessions for initial cliets, and there will be a wine and wellness basket raffle to raise additional funds.

“The Autism Society of Mahoning Valley is an organization close to my heart as I have two boys with autism,” Dr. Ted Suzelis, owner of Ohio Naturopathic Wellness Center, said. “The programs and resources this organization provides is a reminder of how the Mahoning Valley needs to work together to support each other.”
