Choosing Your Acupuncturist
When it comes to choosing your acupuncturist it is important and in your best interest to utilize a practitioner that has met national standards.
The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), insures that one has met national standards for the safe and competent practice of acupuncture as defined by the profession. National board certification in acupuncture has been the mark of excellence in acupuncture since the inception of the Commission.
In the State of Connecticut various professionals are allowed to practice acupunture. Many practitioners have only 100 hours of education and as a result have limited skill as compared to a licensed Acupuncturist. You might want to verify your providers level of knowledge.
