Philosophy and goals

The Minnesota Acupuncture Association is committed to advancing licensed acupuncturists, acupuncture, and integrative medical therapies (herbal, manual therapies, nutrition) as a means for enhancing health and well-being.

We operate from these beliefs:

          • Everyone should have the opportunity to feel better and live a healthy life.
          • Healthcare should be safe, effective and accessible for everyone.
          • There are a variety of ways to accomplish safe, effective and accessible healthcare.
          • Acupuncture and herbal medicine are viable methods for both treatment and preventive healthcare today.


Our organizational goals are to:

        • Advance the profession of licensed acupuncturist within the state of Minnesota by supporting our members through continuing education, legislative activities, and as a link to national developments and research within our profession.
        • Promote ethical and professional standards for our practitioners.
        • Educate the public about the capabilities of acupuncture and integrative medicine and provide information to help them find licensed qualified practitioners.

As an organization, we value:

        • Credibility, professionalism, caring, responsiveness and integrity.
        • Strong, effective, collaborative leadership.
        • Transparent, open, supportive, trustworthy and consistent communication.
        • Teamwork that is effective, collaborative and respective.
