MAA was formed in 2012 by a group of TCM practitioners passionate about the benefits of acupuncture for women in the peri-natal period. We came together with a vision to serve both the practitioner and the patient.
We serve the practitioner by providing resources, educational opportunities, and a community forum to learn and grow professionally. We also support the practitioner by providing a national directory to list their services.
We serve the patient by providing education on the benefits of acupuncture in the peri-natal period with latest research as well as our own anecdotal evidence of efficacy. Our guide on how to find an appropriate provider provides a directory of practitioners who meet a minimum of requirements to safely and effectively treat pregnant women.
The Maternity Acupuncture Association is made up of people who are: Visionaries, healers, teachers, learners, advocates, adventurers, artists, mothers, listeners, seekers, fathers, friends, athletes, practitioners, leaders, mavericks, creators of a better future.
We are engaged and committed to providing women education and access to high quality healthcare, to ease their way to better health and happiness.
