Dear Colleagues

It is a privilege, for ICMART (International Council of Medical Acupuncture and Related Techniques) & FILASMA (Federación Ibero-Latinoamericana de Sociedades Médicas de Acupuntura), represented by COMAH (Colegio Mexicano de Acupuntura Humana A.C.), to invite you all to the First World Congress ICMART-FILASMA Mexico 2017 entitled “The Role of Acupuncture on the World’s Health Integration”, that will take place on Mexico City, on June 2-4, 2017.

For the first time, both ICMART and FILASMA, two umbrella associations representing Medical Acupuncture, have come together to create one of the biggest acupuncture scientific events in the world.

Over the last decades, our specialty has been widely recognized as an indispensable therapeutic resource in health care. Modern scientific research has permitted and continues facilitating the understanding of its underlying mechanisms. Likewise, the investigation and analysis of classic Chinese medicine theories and their correlation to modern medicine, has opened a fascinating horizon of knowledge that allows a more comprehensive and more rational use of acupuncture.

Therefore, we must promote and spread the results of research realized in the vast field of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Modern Acupuncture, having a permanent forum for international academic exchange.

The practice of acupuncture has become an example of unity and integration of physicians and medical acupuncture societies in favor of worldwide health. Thus, the joint organization of this great event between ICMART and FILASMA, represents an excellent example of the integration of medical acupuncturists all over the world.

This is why, we consider of vital importance that you don't miss it and INTEGRATE yourself into this magnificent adventure.


Francisco Lozano MD, PhD
President of FILASMA

Konstantina Theodoratou MD, MSc, Med. Psyc
