Benefits of Membership
Your decision to become a member of your state association shows your commitment to the profession by supporting its activities. By joining the MAS, you have chosen to get involved and be heard!    

MAS membership also includes membership in the nation’s foremost associated group of acupuncturists—the American Society of Acupuncturists (ASA). This national organization is dedicated to working with all state associations as a powerful advocate for our profession. Through its quarterly newsletter, you can keep current on professional developments nationwide.

As a MAS member, you also have access to each past and current issue of the professional research journal, JASA: The Journal of the American Society of Acupuncturists.

As a member of the MAS, you will receive discounts on association sponsored CEU events as well as a 5% discount with Redwing Books and Golden Needle. Your membership also offers you a 10% discount for liability insurance with CM&F.  In addition, these savings from the ASA can help pay for your annual membership: 


MAS has over 80 members and it is growing! Joining your state association is one way of supporting and actively engaging in your professional community. If you have not already, please consider becoming a member of MAS.

  • Advocate for maintaining the high standards of acupuncture practice
  • Support legislation and promote acupuncture in Maine
  • Connect you with a nationwide network of acupuncture associations
  • Educate the general public about acupuncture and East Asian medicine
  • Support research in acupuncture and East Asian medicine
