Acupuncture has been practised in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. In fact, it’s one of the oldest health and wellness systems that is still used today.
With a focus on prevention rather than cure, people from all walks of life swear by the life-changing power of acupuncture. From pain management to women’s needs, fatigue and anxiety, the traditional practice of acupuncture can be used to overcome a number of modern-day issues.
If you’re looking to give acupuncture a try, pay a visit to one of the therapists listed in this article. After conducting some local research, these acupuncturists have come out on top as the best for their level of service and quality of care.
Let’s get right to it.
What Makes a Quality Acupuncturist?
Acupuncture may be an unconventional treatment here in the West, but that doesn’t mean just anyone is equipped with the knowledge or expertise required to deliver an effective result.
Here’s what you should keep an eye out for when seeking a professional acupuncturist:
- Qualifications. Chinese medicine has some scientific backing, and the highly complex, nuanced treatments and practices require an advanced level of expertise to carry out. Look for a therapist with some institutional qualification.
- Specialisations. If you’re grappling with a particular issue, visit an acupuncturist with a specialisation in that area. This might be back pain, headaches, stress, or some other ailment.
- Registered with your health fund. Did you know that some health insurance covers acupuncture? Look for an acupuncturist that is registered with your fund.
