Recently it has been found that there are still many clinics advertising acupuncture who do not have any registered practioners present. This is illegal, but difficult to enforce.
Why should you look for a registered practitioner?
Registered practitioners are required to exhibit the following:
- Highly trained and/or Long experience of safe practice
- Competence to practice as safely as possible
- Continually updating their skills and knowledge
- Recognised by health funds
- Understand when to refer
Always ask if your Acupuncture or Dry Needling practitioner is registered.
