“If you thoroughly investigate the pathomechanism there will be no illness for which you will fail to give the appropriate treatment.”
– Huangdi Neijing Suwen
NJAS acknowledges and respects all traditions of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine. We believe that cooperation and strength among practitioners and supporters will ensure that this ancient and modern medical profession will retain its integrity. Anyone can advocate for safe and effective acupuncture. As licensed acupuncturists, we advocate our practices. As leaders in the field, we step up, learn, and contribute to the local, state, and national efforts to maintain standards while improving the profession.
By protecting the legal status to practice acupuncture in New Jersey, NJAS aims to enhance the quality of health care for people in New Jersey. NJAS membership fees support our dynamic lobbyist team that has already thwarted an attempt for secondary oversight and limitation on practice. Understanding the legislative process and taking action is one way the NJAS serves New Jersey acupuncturists and strengthens the practice of acupuncture as a medicine.
Help shape the future of acupuncture and the delivery of medicine within private practice, Health Maintenance Organizations, Preferred Provider Organizations, and public healthcare (Medicare, Military, VA, and Tribal care).
