How to Find an Acupuncturist
Acupuncture has been growing in popularity throughout the United States due to its ability to effectively treat a number of conditions, from emotional disorders and fatigue to digestive issues and chronic pain. As more people have begun seeking acupuncture treatment, more acupuncturists have popped up.
However, not all acupuncturists are of the same quality. So how will you know if you’ve found a good acupuncturist here at Hackensack Acupuncture & Herbs? Just consider the following:
We are properly licensed and certified
Most states require acupuncturists to hold a license in order to legally practice acupuncture. Not only are we properly licensed to practice in New Jersey, but we hold certification from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAO). The NCCAO is the only nationally recognized certification that’s granted to acupuncturists and is generally indicative of their professional quality.
We have an excellent reputation
To find an acupuncturist that’s of high quality, you should always look at their reputation. An acupuncture practice that provides high-quality acupuncture treatments and customer service will generally have good customer reviews. Not only do we have a customer testimonial page that offers dozens of testimonials from previous patients, but we also have perfect Yelp and Google reviews from our previous customers if you do a basic search online.
Our acupuncturist has extensive training and education
Acupuncture requires thousands of hours of dedicated training and education. The more formal training an acupuncturist can show off, the more confident you can be in their abilities. For example, here at Hackensack Acupuncture & Herbs, our Dr. Kim boasts a number of degrees that include:
- A Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine degree, which he earned at the Five Branches University in California (Dr. Kim is one of the few practitioners in New Jersey to hold this degree).
- A degree from the College of Arts and Sciences at Purdue University.
- A Master of Science degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.
We accept multiple forms of healthcare insurance
Many acupuncture practices accept health insurance, which means that you’ll want to find an acupuncturist that accepts the plan that you are on. You can check to see if you will be covered by looking at our list of accepted insurance plans.
It’s important that you find a good acupuncturist that you can trust here in New Jersey if you plan on getting an acupuncture treatment. These are some of the ways customers know that they’ve found a high-quality, trustworthy acupuncturist when visiting us at Hackensack Acupuncture & Herbs.
