Did you know there is a difference is training?!
Practice by Others Medical doctors and osteopaths may practice acupuncture in Florida without any specific training.
Chiropractors must be certified with 100 hours of training
NOTE: Look for a physician with formal training in the practice of acupuncture. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine is an art and a science that takes years to master. While any licensed physician can stick needles into you, for a positive experience and results, find a acupuncturist with experience treating a similar condition (with acupuncture) to what you have. Look for someone with a national certification with the NCCAOM!
