Los Altos’ newest business community group, Women Entrepreneurs of Los Altos – known simply as WE Los Altos – celebrated the start of Women’s History Month with a kickoff party March 1 at Honcho beer and wine lounge on First Street.

Panakos Acupuncture Clinic owner Carissa Cheung uses traditional Chinese medicine to help clients recover and maintain good health.

As a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine, Carissa Cheung has two objectives: educating and healing.

“In addition to introducing Chinese medicine to a wider group of people, I want to improve people’s quality of life,” said the owner of Panakos Acupuncture Clinic, 851 Fremont Ave., Suite 114. “I truly believe that under normal circumstances, we should not need to suffer chronic discomfort.”

Rally proves unimpressive

By Friday’s close, the Dow Jones industrial average jumped 367 points, or 2.2 percent, to 17,006, and the Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 52 points, or 2.7 percent. Events have steered the market in a positive direction.
