About AMAAZ:

We are an association formed to have a voice for our TCM community. After many years, we have come to realize that we truly need a strong community to protect and preserve the medicine we practice and love, and to support every TCM practitioner in our state, and to work with and support the importance of our state acupuncture board.

We strongly feel that it is time for us to stand shoulder to shoulder and make a significant difference in our personal and professional community in honor of our 20th year of state licensing. We look forward to re-energizing and empowering our profession, to contribute to the well-being and excellence in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture throughout Arizona.

Mission Statement: To promote the science of Eastern medicine and acupuncture in Arizona while advocating for high educational and professional standards.

Vision Statement: To improve the public health, safety and welfare through integrated health care.
