Welcome to the Acupuncture Society of Virginia


Thank you to all those who attended the Town Hall Meeting this past Saturday, October 15th. We had productive discussions on the topics of dry needling and the state of our profession both locally and nationally. The meeting was attended by ASVA members, Virginia acupuncture students, and guest acupuncturists from across the nation. 

A special thanks to our guest speaker, Derreth Painter, who opened our eyes to the importances of addressing our patients with clarity, consistency, compassion, and confidence. Ms. Painter offers one-on-one consultations sessions to those who would like to improve your verbal and non-verbal skills. For her contact information, please contact ASVA at acusova@gmail.com
