Our Philosophy

The New Mexico Society for Acupuncture and Asian Medicine is a non-profit, professional organization of volunteer acupuncturists whose purpose is to promote the practice of acupuncture and Oriental medicine as an effective and valuable component of our healthcare system, to organize educational events, and to act as an inclusive forum for its members to share the wealth and treasures of their personal knowledge, wisdom, and experience.
