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.

To keep your account active you must log in and update your credit card information by manually re-registering your membership through our new gateway. This is a one time process.

Using your same username and password you can login here anytime before your membership is due to renew to update it in our new system. Just navigate to the Become a Member page and select your membership level to renew and follow the checkout process.

For payment to process smoothly, please make sure that your payment method is active, and you have sufficient funds. If you’d like to automate your payments for future renewal, simply go to your Account Profile while logged in and under the ‘My Subscriptions’ tab select your active subscription and make sure auto-renew is toggled on.

Your ongoing support is what drives us to continue working to secure YOUR future as a professional acupuncturist in the state of New Jersey and to provide the best possible services to our members. The more we grow, the more we can do—and the new website will help take us there!
