History & Mission


Background
More than a decade has passed since the acupuncture practice law was enacted and with the growth of the acupuncture profession, its practice and its increasing utilization by consumers, there is a need to update the law to address issues that are not included in the current law. Most notably, it is important to address the fact that many acupuncturists are trained in and practicing herbal recommendation according to Oriental medicine principles in their practices, yet there has been no regulation of this practice. The coalition seeks to regulate herbal practice within the acupuncture statute not only to ensure protection for practitioners to continue their practice of herbs but, more importantly, to protect the public by setting the standards for safe practice of herbs.

Mission
The coalition is conducting a grassroots movement to successfully enact legislative statutory changes to the AOM Licensing Law to more clearly define acupuncture scope of practice, better protect the public, and self regulate our profession.
