The Association for Professional Acupuncture is Pennsylvania’s state organization for non-physician Acupuncturists. Our goal is to support the educational and professional needs of Oriental Medicine in Pennsylvania. Educationally, we sponsor and announce continuing education events throughout the state and have helped bring prominent members of our profession to PA. Legislatively, we are continuously working in Harrisburg to fight for fair practice standards so we can provide the very best care for our patients.

Donate to the PAC – PA
Money collected goes straight to lobbying efforts on behalf of all licensed acupuncturists in Pennsylvania. We work an uphill battle to create a greater scope of practice and gain the freedom to practice our profession without the supervision or mandated referral of Medical Doctors.

With your help of both time and money, we can send lobbyists to Harrisburg to fight for our rights to practice without the supervision or referral of MD’s.

The most important thing for you to do first is to become a member. Your membership dues will help us build a strong lobby as well as help support our educational efforts. Please consider making a donation to our political action committee (PAC_PA). An extra $10, $50 or $100 is more helpful than you may realize. Thank you for supporting the rights of acupuncturists in Pennsylvania!
