The importance of choosing a Board Certified Acupuncturist

nccaomAlthough anyone with a medical or chiropractic degree and continuing education training may “legally” perform acupuncture in Iowa, only Acupuncturists and Oriental Medicine practitioners are certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

Rachel Weissman is a Diplomate of the NCCAOM, having completed three years of specialty training after graduating from engineering school. Rachel has the advanced training necessary to deal with the occasional difficult problem or complication. Board Certified Acupuncturists have had many more years of training and are better prepared to offer you the safest, most comprehensive integrative care.

nccaEarning certification from NCCAOM represents a significant professional achievement. NCCAOM certification makes an important statement about professional competence that is recognized by regulatory bodies, third-party payers, the profession, and the public. To achieve such an honor, one must complete graduate level training of at “least three academic years in length; it must be a resident program; it must demonstrate attainment of professional competence; it must have a adequate clinical component.”

 

PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT WHOEVER PERFORMS YOUR ACUPUNCTURE IS CERTIFIED BY THE NATIONAL CERTIFICATION COMMISSION FOR ACUPUNCTURE AND ORIENTAL MEDICINE.
