Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) inherits and develops the philosophies
of Taoism and Confucianism and uses them to understand disease and health.
The guiding concept of TCM is a correspondence between humankind and nature.
We, as an organism in nature, reflect the world in which we live, thus making a
balance between humankind and nature essential for wellbeing.
Practice of acupuncture with a knowledge of the concepts of Traditional Chinese
Medicine is essential to preserving the efficacy, the safety, the harmony
and ultimately the power of acupuncture to heal.

The
Coalition for Safe Acupuncture Practice believes in a mindful practice
of acupuncture, with the complete Traditional Chinese Medicine
educational training that is necessary to achieve that practice.
In the United States, both the American Association of Acupuncture and
Oriental Medicine (AAAOM) and the Council of Colleges of Acupuncture
and Oriental Medicine have examined the practice of Dry Needling and found it to
be consistent with and synonymous with the practice of acupuncture.

Therefore, the Coalition for Safe Acupuncture Practice advocates complete
acupuncture training and state acupuncture licensure of all those practicing
Dry Needling. We hope to welcome fellow health care practitioners to our
Traditional Chinese Medicine discipline.
