For practitioners in the field, whether a licensed acupuncturist or a medical doctor who incorporates acupuncture into his or her practice, SAR offers tools and resources to provide an informed base of evidence to your practice.  Here's how becoming a member of SAR can help...

  • SAR's growing library of Evidence Based Assessments provides an easy-reading format that summarizes the research for various conditions you may be treating.  While the full assessments offer an individual use license for your personal reference, we also provide 1-page summary sheets available for use as handouts for your patients.  (This benefit alone is worth far more than the cost of an individual SAR membership and is also available as a stand-alone subscription for those who are only interested in this product.)
  • SAR's Member Directory provides a way to connect with other practitioners with an interest in research. The Directory is searchable by name, location, research topics of interest, and research methods of interest.
  • Research Highlights will keep you up to date about recent research studies of interest.
  • Research Summary articles offer commentary about interesting research studies and why they matter.
  • SAR's Expert Interview Series offers glimpses into the background of prominent acupuncture researchers in the field - how they got started in acupuncture research, what areas of research interests them and why, advice for others who may be interested in getting involved in research, and more.
  • If you're interested in attending a SAR conference to learn more about acupuncture research and connect with others who share similar interests, current members receive a discount on conference registration.
  • SAR members also have access to additional resources in the members-only area of SAR's website, including acupuncture methodology and trial design, sham acupuncture, and more. 

Boost your credibility by enhancing your knowledge base with a SAR membership, and connect with SAR through social media outlets to stay informed: Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook

We look forward to your involvement!
