ACAOM Expands Acupuncture Services in Texas

In an effort to make the healing benefits of acupuncture and Oriental medicine available to more people, the American College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine has stuck an alliance with Memorial Hermann Healthcare System. ACAOM will now offer acupuncture services at the Memorial Hermann/Houston Baptist University Wellness Center, one of the largest medically-based, university-affiliated wellness centers in the state.

"We must continue to remain active and lead the community in the effort to mainstream Oriental medicine. I think that it is time to show the public what we have to offer," said Shen Ping Liang, ACAOM's president.

Memorial Hermann Healthcare System is the largest not-for-profit health system in Texas, with 13 hospitals and a medical staff of more than 3,300. ACAOM now provides Oriental medical services at three main locations in the Houston area and has an additional training program at Liaoning College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China.
