Know Your Acupuncturist

Put your care  in the hands of a professionally trained expert in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Did you know that Chiropractors are able to practice Acupuncture in the State of Arizona with only 100 hours of training? And what some call “Dry Needling” is practiced by Physical Therapists and others with as little as 24 hours of training. Make sure to choose your provider carefully. 

There is a very helpful info sheet posted by that can be downloaded to illustrate the different levels of education in acupuncture.

“Know Your Acupuncturist”

In short:

Appreciate having a natural and gentle healthcare solution which has less side effects than many other healthcare options, but only when practiced by a Licensed Oriental Medicine practitioner.

To ensure proper training look for a Licensed Acupuncturist (LAc) who has obtained a degree/diploma from an ACAOM-accredited
college and has passed the national certification exams administered by the NCCAOM.
