KPC Herbs Shows its Commitment to New York State Licensed Acupuncturists

Early this fall Jason Tsai and  KPC Herbs made an important and supportive contribution of $2000 to the work of the New York State Acupuncture Coalition.  This gift has gone a long way to supporting our lobbying costs and providing a renewed sense of motivation and esprit for our team of volunteers. This gift from a major manufacturer and distributor of  high quality herbal products represents an important gesture of support for New York State Licensed Acupuncturists who hope to practice traditional herbology without the threat of legal action against their licenses.  Thank you, Jason Tsai  and KPC Herbs.
