What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
The NCCAOM and Arizona Acupuncture Board of Examiners both require licensed acupuncturists to complete a minimum of 15 hours of approved continuing education to maintain a license to practice. Our expert licensed acupuncturists all complete at least 15 hours of continuing education in the latest techniques. In addition, our head acupuncturist is approved to provide continuing education to other licensed acupuncturists.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I had health issues that did not get resolved by conventional medical approaches, and I already had experience with Asian martial arts, diet therapy, and philosophy. When I got a series of 10 or so treatments from an acupuncture and herbal medicine provider and got relief from issues that had plagued me for decades, I decided to become an Oriental medicine provider myself.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We treat many patients with pain and stress, as well as skin disorders, menstrual disorders, and menopausal imbalances.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure your provider holds an NCCAOM board certification in acupuncture and herbal medicine as well as an Arizona state license to practice acupuncture, not just a license to practice chiropractic, naturopathic medicine, or allopathic medicine.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Acupuncture is a bit like exercise: the more frequently you do it, the better your results.
