2. CONTRIBUTE TODAY

For over 30 years FSOMA has been the non-profit professional association leading the Acupuncture practitioner community in Florida.  We are comprised of 10 volunteers elected by the membership to a Board of Directors and have 2 paid staff.  All of us are acupuncturists and care deeply for this profession.  

Are you a technician? OR Are you an acupuncture physician? 

FSOMA’s 2024-2025 legislative goal is to update the Acupuncture Practice Act (FS 457).  This has not been done since 1999, and now is needed to strengthen and advance current Florida acupuncture practice.  The Association relies on continued financial and advocacy support from the membership, patients, and every stakeholder to help us meet this goal.
