History of Acupuncture and Massage College
Acupuncture and Massage College was originally founded in 1983 as the Acupuncture-Acupressure Institute (AIA), as was the first acupuncture school in Florida.
In 2000, the Acupuncture-Acupressure Institute was granted program accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM). That same year, AIA changed its name to the Southeast Institute of Oriental Medicine (SEIOM), to reflect a broader commitment to the study of Oriental Medicine. In 2003, SEIOM was granted national-accreditation by Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), and institution’s name was changed to Acupuncture and Massage College.
The official motto of Acupuncture and Massage College is “To Heal with Kindness.” We strongly believe that medicine can be both natural and effective, and that healing should always be personal.
For more than 3 decades, we have committed ourselves to transforming healthcare in the United States by educating the next generation of healers and helping them to become highly-skilled and compassionate holistic health practitioners. Our commitment to maintaining a high-standard of education is reflected in our official policies and procedures, and our ethical expectations can be read in our code of conduct.
We offer three different programs of study: a Master of Oriental Medicine, an Associate of Arts in Health Science, and a Diploma in Massage Therapy.
All our programs are taught in an integrative manner, which combines Western Science with Traditional Chinese Medicine. In fact, many of our professors hold advanced degrees in both Conventional Medicine and Oriental Medicine.

Our patients are an important component of our organization, not only because they give our students an opportunity to apply their healing techniques, but also because they assist in spreading and living out the mission of Acupuncture and Massage College.
