About Us

Our Mission:

TryAcupuncture.org is dedicated to educating the public on the benefits of acupuncture while simultaneously helping to support the licensed acupuncturist.

We approach this goal by employing a variety of outreach tools;

Try Acupuncture Magazine: Our magazine is a beautifully designed, high quality, full color quarterly. Geared towards educating the public about the benefits of acupuncture and Chinese medicine, it is filled with informative articles, education and little known facts as well as holistic health and wellness advice with a TCM twist. The magazine is perfect reading material to leave in the acupuncturists waiting room where current patients can learn about the many ways acupuncture can help not only them, but their friends and family as well. The magazine organically results in word of mouth referrals.  All content is curated and inclusion in Try Acupuncture Magazine provides a platform for our contributors to position themselves as experts in their field.

The Directory at TryAcupuncture.org: Utilizing the TryAcupuncture.org Directory, the public can search for a licensed acupuncturist in their area. In addition, this platform provides free listings to practitioners that will increase their business SEO and allow them to be found by people in their area seeking treatment.

The Try Acupuncture Blog: Our informative collection of easily sharable articles educates the public about acupuncture and it’s many benefits. Contributing authors are experts in the field of acupuncture and benefit from the targeted online exposure.

Social Media: Utilizing our strong and very targeted social media following, Try Acupuncture creates awareness campaigns and custom graphics that are easy to share across Facebook, Twitter and other social platforms, informing the public of interesting tidbits and information related to acupuncture in the media.
