American Naprapathic Association

The American Naprapathic Association (ANA) is the nation's oldest and largest association of Naprapaths. Originally founded in 1909, the ANA is a non-profit organization whose members are dedicated to protecting, preserving, promoting and expanding the manual medicine discipline of Naprapathy in all of its endeavors.

Membership is open to all individuals with a Doctor of Naprapathy (D.N.) degree or who is otherwise licensed to practice Naprapathy in their State. There are also Affiliated Memberships and Student/Intern memberships available for those who are studying to be Naprapaths or who have been trained in Naprapathic technique by ANA-approved schools in unlicensed states.

All of our members have a strong commitment to the philosophy, art and science of manual medicine as originally conceived by Dr. Oakley Smith, DN, exercise rehabilitation, postural ergonomics, sound holistic nutritional advice and advancing the profession through evidence-based medicine that supports the basis of naprapathy and manual medicine in general.

Membership in this organization provides a multitude of benefits. First and foremost, the ANA strives to expand the profession and monitors and supports legislation that enhances the professional growth of the science of Naprapathy.

 The ANA schedules bi-annual conventions providing excellent continuing health care education and opportunities for networking with health care colleagues. We are a State of Illinois Approved Sponsor for Illinois-licensed Doctors of Naprapathy.

Presenters come from around the world sharing their knowledge and experience in manual medicine and related disciplines. The annual conventions and various other educational seminars offer you an opportunity to meet colleagues and form valuable supportive friendships with others sharing similar views.

As a member of the ANA you will receive significant discounts to ANA sponsored educational seminars. You are also eligible for membership in any ANA-approved state association of Naprapathy.

Because ANA is the leader in the field of Naprapathic medicine, we are recognized by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation as the primary organization that accredits Naprapathy in Illinois.

According to the State of Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulations  per the Illinois Naprapathic Act Rules, the American Naprapathic Association provides curriculum oversight for all Naprapathic higher educational institutions in Illinois.
