The VTAA is a non-profit association, representing practitioners and consumers of Oriental Medical therapies including Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Asian Bodywork, Tai Chi and Qi Gong. As our health care system in Vermont faces ever-escalating costs, along with the epidemics of obesity, diabetes, asthma, and other chronic health care issues, we'd all benefit by educating Vermonters of the advantages of Oriental Medicine. Everyone agrees that solutions to this crisis need to focus on prevention, and the low cost treatment of chronic conditions. Due to its personalized care, and because it doesn't rely so heavily on expensive high tech solutions, Oriental Medicine stands out in each of these areas. Additionally, the market has validated the effectiveness and efficiency of Oriental Medicine.
To provide focus, consensus, advocacy, and resources to the various practitioners and proponents of Oriental Medicine throughout the state of Vermont, and thereby help to facilitate communication between their respective practices and those of the greater Oriental Medicine community around the world.

Our advocacy can go only as far as our resources. We don't have any large corporations, drug companies, or insurance companies funding our efforts. We have only the individual contributions of supporters who know firsthand what Oriental Medicine can do.
