Sometimes, old technology is the best medicine. Acupuncture has been effectively used for centuries in Asia. One of the major challenges with acupuncture in the United States is this: you may not know whether your healthcare practitioner is adequately qualified. You can get licensed and certified in acupuncture.
Here are some groups you may want to get familiar with:
- National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine
- American Academy of Medical Acupuncture
- American Board of Medical Acupuncture
- Acupuncture Society of America
