In the US, the OM profession is in a current state of growth and movement. This is the only the beginning for the profession and it’s development for the future. There is continued growing interest in all modalities of OM that not only patients are seeking knowledge about but also other healthcare providers. With this in mind, OM practitioners must stay connected to their elected officials to stay on the map and in the spotlight to keep the profession protected.
All acupuncturists can be a part of any legislative activity and voice their opinion by contacting state officials. This is so important to the entire OM profession—not only for practitioners but also for patients. Taking action is easy—by writing letters and emails, making phone calls—all of these type of actions will make a difference!
