Why Choose an Acupuncturist Trained in Oriental Medicine?

Posted on November 8, 2015 at 10:10 AM

My daughter asked me why I drive 45 miles for acupuncture when I could easily find services in town. There are several reasons for my decision. One is that I am willing to travel to work with a health care provider that I like and trust. (I still drive 15 miles for my primary care physician!) The second is that I really appreciate Mandi’s gentle touch. I don’t feel tense or nervous about her inserting the acupuncture needles because I know from experience that she has a light and gentle hand. This is very important to me and I am willing to go a considerable distance to receive this special care. The third reason is that I tried the services here at Lotus Moon on the referral of a friend. I needed help and didn’t know where else to go.


Now that I have done some research and know more about acupuncture I would not go to anyone who was not a combination of two things: a licensed acupuncturist and someone trained in oriental medicine. Why is this combination so important? In Nebraska you can receive acupuncture from a doctor of chiropractic or to someone who just has a license in acupuncture, so what makes the addition of training in Oriental Medicine so special?


To be licensed in acupuncture in the state of Nebraska requires certification by NCCAOM, which requires schooling in acupuncture. This schooling can be for acupuncture alone and does not have to be in the Chinese tradition, but must include a minimum of 1905 classroom and clinical hours to qualify the student to sit for the NCCAOM certification exam in acupuncture alone, or 2625 classroom and clinical hours for acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. * Mandi completed a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ASAOM), which included a total of 3,146 classroom and clinical hours. As the president of ASAOM writes “Chinese Medicine teaches that we are all part of the same microcosmic and macrocosmic systems, striving to maintain a balance that results in health of mind, body and spirit.” **


I have found that the combination of acupuncture, massage and Chinese herbal therapy work together in a powerful combination to help me move toward that balance of mind, body and spirit. I have spoken to others and know that this is true for them as well. For some it is a different combination. For some it is just acupuncture. Training, touch, trust, and relationship with your acupuncturist are key, whether you are seeking acupuncture alone or a combination of acupuncture and another therapy.
