Abstract;Since James Reston's Acupuncture experiece in Beijin in 1971, America opened her eyes to acupuncture. In the 1980's, Joseph M. Helms, M.D. at UCLA studied Chinese acupuncture in France and established AAMA (American Academy of Medical Acupuncture) for physicians and authored his book "ACUPUNCTURE ENERGETICS" which has become the golden textbook for physician acupuncturists. His "energizing" technique for various illness became the standard, Of course, other modalities have been utilized. With Helms' influence, AAMA has grown to 2000 members including those outside the USA. In 2000, ABMA (American Board of Medical Acupuncture) was developed for the physician acupuncturists certified as experts in the field of medical acupuncture. The members are working and studying diligently. At the end of this report, I will discuss my own practice. (author abst.)
