Think Acupuncture First

Acus Foundation became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation in July 2014. Since then, we have advanced our mission by creating a culture of Think Acupuncture First in military medicine. This is an initiative that establishes medical acupuncture as a primary therapeutic modality to treat chronic pain, post-traumatic stress, post-concussive symptoms, and other common service-related medical problems.

The U.S. Department of Defense, along with the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Veterans Health Administration (VHA) have all acknowledged the need to incorporate integrative medicine to a much greater degree into military health care. At Nellis Air Force Base, Acus Foundation is creating a standardized training curriculum and clinical model of incorporation for medical acupuncture.

Acupuncture is now part of our first line of treatment rather than a last resort.

This is an amazing treatment. I think it should be available to everybody who needs it.
