We are a membership organization where membership is open to everyone from anywhere in the world, inviting new ideas and the sharing of knowledge and experience amongst those seeking or practicing this form of alternative medicine. Our website offers a wealth of information on the hive products and offers a large network of like minded individuals sharing their knowledge on a global level. Member benefits include receiving our quarterly journal, posting on the forum, access to past issues of the journal and our past course and conference material, and access to our network list consisting of members all over the world willing to share their knowledge on apitherapy and their experiences with it.
We are not a referral service. We do provide our members with access to our network list, the individuals on this list are AAS members who agree to be contacted by other members through email or by phone to share information and assist others in becoming involved with apitherapy. Many of these members do practice apitherapy ranging from those who perform bee venom therapy to those who simply use other hive products in their healing protocols. Our large network offers a wide range of solutions and contacts in the realm of apitherapy. We are all helping each other to help ourselves as your commitment to health begins with you.
Annually the AAS presents the Charles Mraz Course and Conference held in different US cities where we spend 3 days teaching others about apitherapy through both a classroom venue and a practical hands on approach. Members leave our conference with knowledge passed on to them by our most experienced apitherapists and the confidence to help themselves and others participate in Apitherapy. It is a great venue not only to learn all there is to know about apitherapy but to network and become part of a community that takes an active interest in your health and the well being of others.
The AAS is a non profit organization founded in 1989. We are known throughout the United States and the world for our course and conference, our journal, our network, our website, and for the support that we give to the public and to our members. We depend on our members for their support and on the donations from those who believe we are making a difference, their commitment to us is vital to our success.
