FSOMA Legal Defense Fund

The Legal Defense Fund was created by the FSOMA Board to help cover legal expenses for issues which threaten the practice of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. It is used to pay for legal consultations and to begin the funding of litigation if the profession needs to go to court to defend itself from outside attack.

The Dry Needling fund is used to combat the initiative by the Physical Therapists to practice acupuncture with little training by renaming it dry needling.

It has been really nice to see how eager patients are to donate to help support acupuncture. It is a great opportunity for me to educate patients on the proposed house bill to increase acupuncture coverage for ‘Heroes and Seniors’, every patient that I’ve spoken to has texted their support for this important bill. It has also opened the conversation to talk about the different educational requirements for acupuncturists, chiropractors and potentially physical therapists. Most patients have no idea that the training is so different for each profession.
I have found this to be a great way to get patients involved. Thanks again for offering this!
