Q: What qualifications do acupuncturists have.

Registered acupuncturists have completed a four year degree or its equivalent in traditional acupuncture including substantial elements of Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, biochemistry, pharmacology, counselling differential diagnosis, microbiology and more. Acupuncturists in many countries around the world, including Australia, must be registered and licensed with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) which is responsible for the registration of all health care practitioners, such as Doctors, physiotherapists, dentists and so on.

During the consultation.

Your acupuncturist will record all relevant details of your health condition and medical history before acupuncture treatment commences.
Occasionally, based on this information your acupuncturist may refer you to your GP for further medical treatments or investigations.

During treatment.

Your acupuncturist uses pre-sterilized single use needles which are safely disposed of after your treatment and all treatments are carried out in line with professional standards which have been developed in conjunction with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) codes of safe practice and professional conduct and the Chinese Medicine registration Board of Australia (CMRBA) and in all cases have also been approved by local government authority environmental health officers and all acupuncturists have full medical insurance cover.

Regardless of your medically diagnosed condition natural medicine has something to offer either as a stand alone treatment or as complementary  treatment along side orthodox treatment.
