By |2018-11-29T13:35:15+00:00November 29th, 2018|Uncategorized|

Nine members of the California Asian Pacific Islander Legislative Caucus signed and issued a letter today in support of the unification of the acupuncturists, citing an increased need for acupuncture and an ASA statement that the greatest risk to acupuncture comes from fragmentation which prevents us from acting as a meaningful, coordinated body.  […]

加州針灸師團結一致,抵制、抗議幹針

在加州的合法化

關於“幹針”的話題,在美國已經議論了好幾年了。在這個過程中,有很多州的針灸組織(中醫公會)等,組織中醫師為抵制和抗議所在州的幹針合法化做出了很大的努力。但是,由於有些州針灸師的人數較少、力量單薄,最終被理療協會掙得了合法的營業資格。

根据不完全统计,目前,在美国51个州(包括华盛顿特区)中,目前已经有35个州明确允许物理治疗师从事干针(DryNeedling)治疗,另有9个州情况不明,只有7个州不允许物理师行使幹針。據我所知,物理治療師協會在加州也不斷地爭取州的立法認可,並有可能在2019年的年初的中期選舉後的下一個立法會議上通過立法。

我一直在聖地亞哥與CalATMA一起工作,也一直向北旅行 – 去洛杉磯,上週末,伯克利。我找了兩個市政廳,並參加了幾個指導委員會會議。我密切關注會議中所說和所做的事情以及兩者之間的後續行動。我正在好萊塢,聖巴巴拉,棕櫚泉和舊金山的市政廳遊說。

目前的最重要的事情,籌集資金聘請說客,為尋找相關的政要提供資金,用來招聘說客直接代表我們,以解決我們當前迫在眉睫的問題—阻止加州的物理治療師協會通過立法。因為,加州物理治療師協會也爭得了美國國家物理治療師協會的大力支持。

目前,我們加州擁有12,000多名針灸師,但只有大約2,000名的針灸師加入了當地中醫師有關協會、組織。而這2,000多名針灸師卻分散在26個針灸組織裡,而這些團體大多數沒有法律地位,或遊說、參與活動的資格。

由於針灸師的團體眾多、會員分散,無法集中力量、擰成一股繩來參與到這次抵制和抗議理療協會的活動,這就是為什麼議員Evan Low(B&P委員會主席)支持組建 CalATMA–一個專業的統一的協會—中醫師統一公會,為加州的針灸師爭取合法的權益。 Assemblyman Low 匯集了來自各個加州組織的代表,組成了一個指導委員會,以這個協會組織的強大力量,和薩克拉門託的幾位立法議員以及政治顧問一起努力。

我們不但要阻止理療師協會的立法,還要制定中醫針灸師的立法,以促進、保護、整合和發展我們的針灸師事業。您的會員費和PAC捐款將幫助大家繼續為這兩項重大事情提供充足的運作資金。

擬設立的統一公會的目標是在2018年底之前增加500名成員。成為擁有超過7000名成員的團體。請加州的中醫師們,踴躍加入這個團體,為加州中醫師發聲,為保護中醫師的合法權益發揮作用!
