Acupuncture Organizations

While there is no definitive information on the number of acupuncture associations, societies and related organizations in the United States, nearly every state that has an acupuncture law on the books also has its own association. (Some states, such as California, have several.) In addition, there are approximately a dozen national organizations, each representing the interests of the acupuncture and Oriental medicine profession.

To help practitioners and foster improved communication across the profession, Acupuncture Today is including, to the best of our knowledge, a listing of every known acupuncture and Oriental medicine organization in the U.S. on this page. National organizations are listed first (in alphabetical order), followed by state organizations (alphabetized by state).

If the information listed below is incorrect or outdated, or if know of any organization that is not included on this list (but should be), please contact Michael Devitt, Acupuncture Today's managing editor, at 714-230-3181, or by e-mail at .
