Choosing a Practitioner

If you’re considering acupuncture, take the same steps you would choose a doctor:

-Ask people you trust for recommendations.

-Check the practitioner’s training and credentials. Most states require that nonphysician acupuncturists pass an exam conducted by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

-Interview the practitioner. Ask what’s involved in the treatment, how likely it is to help your condition, and how much it will cost.

-Find out whether your insurance covers the treatment.
