 What is an Acupuncture Practitioner?

Acupuncture Practitioners are therapists such as physiotherapists, musculoskeletal podiatric specialists, osteopaths, chiropracters, sports and remedial massage therapists who practice acupuncture as an adjunct therapy within their field of practice. Acupuncture practitioners will have undertaken a degree or diploma in their field of practice. Following completion of their degree/diploma they will have undertaken further post graduate training in acupuncture.
