How do I choose the right acupuncturist?

It’s important to make the right choice, and choosing your healthcare practitioner can be a very personal thing.  

It’s important that your acupuncturist is licensed and board certified.  Many healthcare practitioners are taking weekend courses to become certified in acupuncture; however, they are not licensed.  All licensed acupuncturists in the state of Texas have taken over 3500 academic hours in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, have graduated from an accredited acupuncture and Chinese Medicine graduate program, and have successfully passed four state medical board exams.  The best way to know whether your acupuncturist is licensed and board certified is by checking here.
