Save the Date for AAMA’s 2022 Symposium

The Annual AAMA Symposium will be held in-person, May 5-8, 2022 at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza in Cincinnati, OH.

The American Academy of Medical Acupuncture is designing the 2022 Symposium to meet an expressed need to explore the mechanisms of acupuncture from several different perspectives and to examine current scientific research in the field of medical acupuncture. It will address topics suggested by practitioners and stress a variety of approaches to practical clinical problems. Surveys and evaluations from previous symposia indicate there is a desire for more information about acupuncture techniques that honor the rich history of Asian medicine as applied to the contemporary, Western medical practice.

The 2022 Symposium will:

  • Expand awareness of scientific research into the effects of acupuncture.
  • Focus on clinically relevant treatment approaches that can easily be integrated into clinical practice.
  • Introduce attendees to a variety of approaches for the treatment of common conditions seen in clinical practice.
  • Teach attendees new ways to tailor acupuncture treatments to their individual patients.
  • Provide time for networking with leaders, peers and friends who practice medical acupuncture.

Who Should Attend?

The Symposium is designed for instruction and training of health care professionals interested in, or already practicing, acupuncture. Medical practitioners with no experience as well as those with extensive backgrounds in acupuncture will find the program useful to their medical practices.

The Annual Symposium emphasizes evidence-based scientific research that can be integrated with practical protocols for the serious clinician.
