Roberta Gacsal, a surgical technician and later registered nurse at St. Charles Mercy Hospital since 1959, had been dealing with pain for some time.

“I had slipped and didn’t actually fall, but I must have done something to the hip area. I had gone and had pain pills. I’ve had epidermals and nothing seemed to help it,” Gacsal said.

Then she found an ancient form of Chinese medicine that is claimed to stimulate and increase the flow of vital energy, Qi (pronounced “chee”), throughout the body. Most of us know this procedure as acupuncture.

This is accomplished by inserting needles at very precise acupuncture points located near or on the surface of the skin. Acupuncture points are explained as “areas of decreased electrical resistance.” These areas have been plotted out by Chinese practitioners for over 2,000 years and have been shown to be effective in treating specific conditions, literature from a local clinic claims.

Northwood EMS Fire Chief Phillip J. Wojcinski has been suspended from his job as a result of charges that he and his wife Shawna, furnished alcohol to minors, a first degree misdemeanor.

Their case is set for pre-trial in Perrysburg Municipal Court on January 28 at 9 a.m.

“Once the city heard about it, he was suspended,” said Northwood Mayor Mark Stoner.

Once the case is concluded, Fire Chief Tim Romstadt will make a recommendation to City Administrator Dennis Recker on whether Wojcinski, 44, should be reinstated, said Stoner.
