The memories of the Chinese Medicine Practitioners In New York in the past 22 Years

We have been forging forward with our original intention


The United Alliance of NYS Licensed Acupuncturists , INC.(UANYSLA)  was founded in New York State in March 1996 and registered with the state government under the laws of the State of New York.  It is a non-profit TCM and acupuncture professional academic and research organization.
The United Alliance of New York State Licensed Acupuncturists was founded by merging five different Chinese Medicine professional groups in the Greater New York area.
The UANYSLA was composed of five different Chinese medicine professional groups in the greater New York area. It is committed to strive for the legitimate rights and interests for its members and communities. Its main tasks include protecting the rights of licensed acupuncturists and promoting business development. After the New York acupuncture law was passed, the association has significantly contributed to the acupuncture business in the part of insurance payment.
In the past twenty-two years since the establishment of the association, the previous councils and all members have united together and made the organization grow and strong. At present time, it has become a recognized top academic exchange group in this field.

It is the mission of every Chinese medicine practitioner to develop Chinese medicine and promote the integration of acupuncture into the mainstream medical system in the United States. We are still on the road, but we have never forgotten our initial heart and have been forging ahead.
