What Should I Look For in an Acupuncturist

From the Mayo Clinic

Choosing a practitioner

If you’re considering acupuncture, take the same steps you would to choose a doctor:

  • Ask people you trust for recommendations.
  • Check the practitioner’s training and credentials. Most states require that nonphysician acupuncturists pass an exam conducted by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
  • Interview the practitioner. Ask what’s involved in the treatment, how likely it is to help your condition and how much it will cost.
  • Find out whether your insurance covers the treatment.

Tell your doctor you’re considering acupuncture. He or she may be able to tell you about the success rate of using acupuncture for your condition or recommend an acupuncture practitioner.
