The Greater Houston Acupuncture Alliance is a unified and synergistic voice of licensed acupuncturists, serving to educate the general public - our future clients - about Chinese medicine, acupuncture, herbs, and all else that TCM encompasses, especially focusing on differentiating ourselves as licensed acupuncturists.
We are a referral network and support system that shares ideas, resources, and the most up-to-date practices. It is our purpose to share the best practices regarding marketing, office management, patient treatment, and continuing education, while developing positive relationships with healthcare practitioners to create a network amongst each other and within the broader healthcare community.
In addition, it is our goal to provide a peer forum to openly discuss difficult-to-treat, unique and interesting patient cases. Overall, it is our intention to foster a collaborative environment that promotes the practice of TCM as well as the successful practice of our members.
