You are an expert on Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine. The best part of your day is hearing that a patient is feeling better because of your care. Your practice is important to your patients and community. You invest time and energy into your practice and want to see it grow and thrive. You know that sometimes, you need expert help to make that happen. As a member of the APA you have joined together with your fellow practitioners to protect and advance your profession. We have done well together these past 15 years and have sculpted our licensure law into something that works for us, as practitioners, and protects our patients. 

The landscape of our profession is shifting. More and more research is being published showing the value of our medicine. Allied health professionals witness the benefit of our treatment and some are looking to add bits of our medicine to their practice. Fourteen (14) States are currently allowing physical therapists to perform ‘dry needling’. There is an effort to make this legal across the United States.  In Pennsylvania, right now, the law is on our side yet there are physical therapists proudly practicing dry needling regardless of the fact that it isn’t in their practice act. The Pennsylvania Physical Therapy Association is more than 10 times larger than the APA. A few years ago we brought an expert onto our team, Ted Mowatt of Wanner and Associates who has been our watchdog in Harrisburg and immeasurable help in advancing acupuncture-friendly bills in our state legislature. However, our yearly membership income does not cover all of our expenses. 

The cause for protecting and advancing our profession here in Pennsylvania needs you. Will you consider becoming a champion of Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine by making a monetary gift? Set your membership to auto-renew and consider becoming a champion of Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine here in Pennsylvania by increasing your membership contribution. An additional contribution of $500, $750, or $1,000 makes a considerable difference. We cannot protect and advance the profession without your ongoing help. The future of our medicine depends on your generosity. Please know how honored we are when you choose to make an additional gift and become a member of the Circle the Dragon Society.
