    Happy Independence Day!

    On this Day of Independence, we ask you to help us bring joy and Freedom from Pain.

    Those who have fought for freedom—our nation’s service members, veterans, and first responders—too often suffer from chronic pain and stress.

    Medical acupuncture provides relief without side effects or the dangers of addiction.

    At Acus Foundation, we train the doctors who treat the pain. We use medical acupuncture to address the root of the problem, not just the symptoms.

    Join our doctors and help provide drug-free pain relief by making a donation today.

    Your gift will provide long-lasting independence and Freedom from Pain to those who serve. Thank you.

    Going Virtual

    In response to the coronavirus pandemic, we have transitioned our Acus courses to be distance-learning programs. Our students are viewing digital lectures and are working with mentors at their home bases to ensure they have learned advanced medical acupuncture theories and protocols. Mentors are also overseeing the hands-on application of these techniques.

    We are so grateful to be able to tap into the tremendous knowledge and skills of our graduates across the country to serve as mentors to our current students. In addition, the fantastic lecturing by preceptors in previous years has provided the material for the digital lectures, so we are so appreciative of their work that will serve our classes for years to come.
