We are honored to have Oct. 24, 2014, proclaimed as Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day in the state of Michigan. 


AOM Day was first celebrated in the USA in 2002, and in the years since has become an international event recognizing the value of this comprehensive traditional medical system. 


State AOM associations across the country are planning events for Oct 24, with the support of national organizations such as NCCAOM, AAAOM, CCAOM, and ACAOM. For more information about AOM Day, please visit the official website:
