You may find that various health practitioners may also perform acupuncture in addition to their other therapies. However, we recommend that, as with anything, if you are seeking acupuncture, to seek a practitioner with the highest level of training.
Registered Acupuncturists undergo by far the most rigorous training in the theory and practice of acupuncture. This ensures that you receive the safest and most effective treatment, and with more complex conditions, that your practitioner is well-trained in the diagnosis and treatment of such problems.
Acupuncture is extremely safe and side-effects are rare when performed by a highly-trained practitioner.
