Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture is a five thousand year old medical tradition based on clinical observation and treatment. Diagnosis in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture is based on observation, interview, pulse and tongue diagnosis, and other diagnostic tools. Following an assessment, treatment may involve acupuncture, cupping, moxabustion, electrotherapy, bleeding, TDP heat lamp, or other traditional treatments. Acupuncture involves the placement of sterile one time use disposable needles into specific points on the body. The training required of an Acupuncturist includes successful completion of the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) exam. Training may also include a Masters of Science in Acupuncture degree.
