Greeting from the president of The Japan Society of Acupuncture and Moxibustion (JSAM)

The Japan Society of Acupuncture and Moxibustion (JSAM) is the representative scientific organization in the acupuncture and moxibustion fields in Japan, being composed of more than 5,000 members including "acupuncturists", "moxibustionists", "medical doctors", "dental doctors" and "medical researchers". I, Tadashi Hisamitsu, will set out our objectives and the roads we will take while I am the president of JSAM.

I believe that the most important aim of JSAM is to support the progress and recognition of JAPANESE ACUPUNCTURE and MOXIBUSTION from a scientific perspective. In other words, JSAM will promote the development of JAPANESE ACUPUNCTURE and MOXIBUSTION with the full use of historical points of view, technical innovation, scientific confirmation, and the discovery of knowledge and mechanisms.

Recently, basic and clinical research for acupuncture and moxibustion revealed that these stimulation therapies were favorable for the improvement of patients' conditions as well as for the prevention of diseases and promotion of health. We encourage such research and will disseminate the results to the world in order to promote in-depth understanding and reliance on JAPANESE ACUPUNCTURE and MOXIBUSTION. We also promote personnel exchanges and information sharing with foreign countries.

Young vigorous power is necessary for the further development of JAPANESE ACUPUNCTURE and MOXIBUSTION. We keep members informed that the acquisition of up-to-date knowledge is essential for the progress of JAPANESE ACUPUNCTURE and MOXIBUSTION. We encourage campaigns to gain more members and refresh JSAM for further development. I sincerely hope that the people concerned will offer their cooperation. Thank you very much.
