Mark Your Calendars For
Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day!

Mark your calendars... because Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AOM) Day is just months away. Held annually on October 24, 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/treatment 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 from of treatment.

AOM Day is the perfect opportunity for the general public to test out this centuries-old practice. So if you're still 
on the fence about receiving an acupuncture treatment, 
schedule an appointment for October 24.

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're suffering from a particular health ailment, or if you simply want to learn more about the practice of acupuncture, you should take advantage of AOM Day by scheduling an appointment with a licensed acupuncturist. 

Who knows? 
You might discover a powerful new way to treat 
 one or more conditions from which you suffer.


Why You Should Try Acupuncture on AOM Day
There's no better time than Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day (AOM) for newcomers to try the 3,000-year-old Chinese practice of acupuncture. Observed annually on October 24, AOM Day is designed to raise awareness to the use, progression, and benefits of acupuncture and other forms of traditional Oriental medicine. Thousands of licensed acupuncturists, government figures, and health organizations use this day to support the practice and its use in modern-day medicine

Whether you're suffering from a particular condition, disease or ailment, or if you just want to see what all the fuss is about, you should schedule an acupuncture session on AOM Day. Being that AOM Day is recognized throughout the world (not just the U.S.), acupuncturists everywhere will be offering great deals in an effort to educate the general public on this practice.

One of the most common reasons why people seek the professional services of licensed acupuncturists is to treat pain. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) reports that more than 100 million people in the U.S. suffer from chronic pain. 
What's even more alarming, however, is that the total cost of treatment for chronic pain is over $600 billion a year 
(lost productivity included).

We live in age where people visit their family doctor to treat everything from the common cold and flu viruses to migraines and chronic pain. These doctors are trained and coached by pharmaceutical companies to push drugs to their patients - drugs that mask the problem rather than treating it at the root cause. For instance, a doctor may prescribe painkillers to a patient complaining of chronic pain. These painkillers may offer some temporary relief, but this is short-lived, as the patient will develop a resistance to the drugs.

Acupuncture, on the other hand, treats pain and the underlying condition. By placing small needles in target areas, the body's own self-healing mechanism is activated; thus, healing the physiological or psychological problem causing the pain.

6 Reasons To Try Acupuncture on AOM Day:

1. It's time-tested. Unlike the newer treatments and medicines 
on the market, you can rest assured knowing 
acupuncture has been tested for thousands of years. 
Some of the early documented accounts of 
acupuncture date back to China's 
Shang Dynasty of 1600-1100 BCE.

2. Acupuncture sessions are short, 
usually lasting 30-60 minutes each.

3. 1 in 3 Americans use some form of contemporary/
alternative medicine.  Why aren't you?

4. According to a study published in the May issue of Archives of Internal Medicine, patients suffering from back pain saw a 15% greater improvement in their symptoms from acupuncture treatment than patients treated with traditional pharmaceutics.

5. Acupuncture can treat both physiological and psychological disorders. Some of the common psychological disorders 
treated through acupuncture include stress, anxiety, 
depression and insomnia.

6. It's painless. Contrary to what some people may believe, acupuncture is completely painless. In fact, it's actually 
quite calming and relaxing, as it activates your 
body's natural self-healing-process.
