Welcome from the Chair

david_millerDear Friends,

As Chair of the American Society of Acupuncturists (ASA) I am delighted to introduce you to this vibrant new organization!

The ASA represents a new stage of development in collaboration among groups working to promote the best of acupuncture and East Asian medicine in the United States.  After years of preliminary, informal work together as the Council of State Associations, the ASA was born as a 501(c)6 not-for-profit entity that allows our member organizations to achieve a new level of collective performance.

The ASA currently has 27 state member associations representing nearly 4000 individual acupuncturists around the country.  Our structure seeks to be inclusive from the bottom upwards, so that the voices of the individual acupuncturist ‘on the ground’ can be channeled towards collaborative effort.  We share expertise, resources, experiences, and inspiration with one another.


Our members include:
Acupuncture for Alaska
California State Oriental Medical Association
Acupuncture Association of Colorado
Connecticut Society of Acupuncturists
Florida Acupuncture Association
Florida State Oriental Medical Association
Illinois Association of AOM
Indiana Society of Acupuncture
Maine Association of AOM
Maryland Acupuncture Society

Ohio Association of AOM
Oregon Association of AOM
Association for Professional Acupuncture in Pennsylvania
Rhode Island Society of AOM
Tennessee Acupuncture Council
