Acupuncture is actually a treatment method used by skilled professionals called acupuncturists to treat a variety of pain and illnesses. It is done by inserting thin needles into the skin of patients to stimulate parts of the skin to be able to influence certain organs or tissues in the body. This process then leads to stimulation of the immune system, pain reduction and healing of wounds. Acupuncture can be used to treat migraines, hypertension, chronic pain, allergies, insomnia, menstrual cramps, among others. Acupuncture is a minimally invasive process and the needles usually cause little or no discomfort to the patient.
Getting a good acupuncturist is not a difficult thing to do. An easy way to go about a good profession is to look up the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine website at www.nccaom.org to use the “Find a Practitioner” tool. Under the option, you’ll select the category as “Oriental Medicine”. Oriental Medicine is an aspect that involves acupuncture so selecting the category will help you get a professional in the field. You can then input your zip code and find acupuncturists close to you after which you can research about them, check their websites and patients reviews, call them and schedule an appointment.
No, acupuncturists are not doctors. There are doctors who study and get a license to practice acupuncture but unless it’s like that, an acupuncturist cannot claim to be a doctor. They cannot prescribe any kind of treatment using a drug or controlled substance, they’re only specialized in healing treatments which do not qualify them as doctors even though they are licensed to practice it. The field of acupuncture is under Oriental medicine and it in no way makes one a doctor.
You don’t necessarily need to tip your acupuncturist. Just like in every other setting, tipping is something you do after getting good service and most importantly, it’s usually voluntary. If your acupuncturist is a doctor or a physician, you don’t need to tip them or offer a tip but if you’re getting your service from a spa, then you can consider tipping your acupuncturist. But again, it’s not important.
