Laurie Akkeros, a massage and
cranial sacral specialist in Ann
Arbor, said although ancient oriental
forms of treatment such as acupunc-
ture, meditation and massage therapy
don't strike Asians or Europeans as
new, the connection between the
Western, research-based medicine
and a more holistic and spiritual
Eastern therapy was never quite
made until now.
"Just recently, I have been
approached by some faculty of the
University's health system who are
interested in learning more about
forms of alternative therapy. They
know it's effective and they want to tap
into it too,' Akkeros said.
Glaza said she has found advertising
and selling alternative therapy meth-
ods in Ann Arbor to be especially dif-
ficult, Glaza said.
"Being such a scientifically oriented
area, there is a clash between our
methods of treatment and what is med-
ically accepted," she said.
Meeting somewhere in the mid-
dle of these two different therapeu-
tic worlds is Leonardo Stoute, the
owner of Natural Healing near the
corner of Maynard and East
William streets. Stoute has tried to
bring herbal medicine to the Ann
Arbor community, specifically tar-
geting University staff and
"Students, staff, nurses and even
some of the doctors come in here
because they want to learn more about
the other forms of therapy. They are
from a newer, younger generation who
want to keep up with the times" he

specialist for more than 20 years,
Stoute said medicine has its place in
treatment of certain diseases, but it is
also essential to look to the source of
the medication that doctors provide

companies get their stuff from?" he
asked. "Nature has always been the
Jason Osstifin, an assistant manager
at Natural Healing, uses different com-
binations of oils, nutrients, herbs and
tinctures, or extracts of herbs, to treat
symptoms ranging from prenatal nutri-
tion needs to menstrual cramps to
"There are virtually hundreds of
combinations that can be made of
these herbs and they treat a numerous
amount of complications of the body,"
The key to treating any ailment,
Stoute said, is to recognize that "over-
all, nature's right, no matter what prob-
lems arise. We can always look back to
it and it will provide us with the
answers," he said.
Senators may remove Confederate flag
COLUMBIA, S.C. - Lawmakers yesterday began debating a compromise
plan to remove the Confederate flag from the Statehouse dome, as hundreds of
flag supporters lined up to watch.
The Senate flag bill is the first such legislation to the reach the floor of either
chamber this session. Key senators had worked out an agreement they thdught
would satisfy flag supporters and opponents.
But the deal began unraveling with flag supporters' objections to an clarify
amendment offered by flag opponents. Both sides worked to save the compromise.
"Ladies and gentlemen, we are very, very close to making history," Democrat-
ic Sen. Verne Smith said. He said flag opponents wanted to make sure tricks
weren't being played on them.
The bill would remove the banner from the dome and place a similar battle
flag behind an existing monument honoring Confederate soldiers on Statehouse
grounds. The flag would fly on the north side of the Statehouse from a pole no
taller than the monument.
That element was added to satisfy black lawmakers and other flag opponents
who did not want the flag in a prominent place where it could be seen by
Opponents of the flag say it is a racist symbol, while supporters say it rele
sents Southern heritage and honors Confederate war dead.
