About Our Organization

The Acupuncture Society of Virginia (ASVA) is a professional membership organization of Licensed Acupuncturists (L.Ac.s) dedic ated to promoting the practice of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in the Commonwealth of Virginia.


Our mission is to uphold high professional ethics and standards by monitoring and supporting legislation regarding professional standards and public safety and to educate the general public regarding the nature and scope of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.  We support clinical research verifying the effectiveness of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. We cooperate with national professional organizations and provide continuing education programs for Licensed Acupuncturists.

Our members receive the benefit of listing their practice on our statewide site, the ability to submit listings of upcoming events, the ability to participate in efforts to protect our profession at the state legislative level, discounts on supplies and educational events sponsored by partner suppliers and organizations, and access to a community of fellow professionals.  Become a member today!



Know Your Acupuncturist

Practitioners whose educational focus is in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine receive approximately 80% of their training exclusively in this field, and undergo an extensive clinical internship averaging 3 years. Other healthcare practitioners may use acupuncture, which is one of the many therapies of Oriental Medicine, as an adjunct to their primary practice. While all of these practitioners also have training in western medical sciences, this chart is designed to illustrate the varying levels of acupuncture training generally undertaken by healthcare professionals.

Send us an email at acusova@gmail.com and let us know what fun and special things you are planning for AOM day.  It would be great for Virginia acupuncturists to be noticed!  We are creating an AOM Day event page on our website.  We will list all events hosted by ASVA members around the state and post any videos our members create for the NCCAOM contest, so send them our way!  We are also offering FREE admittance to the Grand Rounds on November 9th for the acupuncturist submitting the best idea voted by the Board.  Good luck in the contest!
