Mark Your Calendars For Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day!

Mark your calendars… because Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AOM) Day is just months away. Held annually on October 24, AOM Day aims to raise public awareness and support for the use of acupuncture and other forms of traditional Chinese and Oriental medicine.

 

Acupuncture is traditional form of complimentary medicine/treatment in which thin needles are placed inside the skin to promote the body’s own self-healing mechanism. It’s frequently used to treat pain, inflammation, and dozens of different physical and mental conditions. Acupuncture originated in China during the Shang Dynasty (600–1100 BCE) but has since spread throughout the world, with millions of people now using it to improve their lives.

 

Newcomers are often skeptical of the effectiveness of acupuncture. However, a survey conducted by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine found that roughly 1 in 10 adults had received acupuncture, and nearly half of those respondents said they were either “extremely satisfied” or “very satisfied’ with the results. The survey also found that 60% of respondents said they would consider regular acupuncture sessions as a from of treatment.

 

AOM Day is the perfect opportunity for the general public to test out this centuries-old practice. So if you’re still on the fence about receiving an acupuncture treatment, schedule an appointment this month!

 

Last year, Iowa state Senator Tom Harkin signed a proclamation to support acupuncture and AOM Day, while also applauding the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and other organizations for sponsoring AOM Day. Of course, Senator Harkin is just one of many lawmakers who are eager to voice their support for acupuncture. Important government figures throughout the country use AOM Day as a platform to raise awareness for this safe and effective traditional practice.

 

AOM Day is sponsored through a partnership of prestigious research, educational and professional institutions, including the Council of State Associations, Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia, and the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Med

 

Whether you’re suffering from a particular health ailment, or if you simply want to learn more about the practice of acupuncture, you should take advantage of AOM Day by scheduling an appointment with a licensed acupuncturist. Who knows, you might discover a powerful new way to treat one or more conditions from which you suffer.
