October/November Newsletter: Celebrate AOM Day

Held annually on October 24, Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day (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 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 form of treatment.
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 Medicine.
Whether you or a loved one is suffering from a particular health ailment, or simply want to learn more about the practice of acupuncture, AOM Day is the perfect reason to schedule an appointment today!
