New Mexico Society of Acupuncture and Asian Medicine is a 501(c)6 organization that has been leading the practice of integrated medicine in New Mexico for many years. Deeply involved in the community and legislative efforts to ensure they have the safest and most advanced medical practices in New Mexico, NMSAAM is now launching efforts to be more accessible to the general public. It is the only fully DOM licensed organization in the state. President John Scott and Vice-President Yvonne Walston discussed why acupuncture is effective.
Research has shown that acupuncture and Asian medicine are effective for migraines, low back pain, season allergies, know osteoarthritis, and postoperative pain, but these are only a small part of what Doctors of Oriental Medicine can treat. Their medicine and broad scope of practice offers a complete system of care and can address many more conditions as well.
