ACUPUNCTURIST

May 4, 2017, 10:58 a.m.

Acupuncturists are skilled health care professionals who apply the theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine in the form of Acupuncture. They care for patients by evaluating and treating pain and illness and in maintaining health and wellness. Acupuncturists have specialized expertise in using traditional methods of assessment and use both traditional and advanced technology in their treatments. They are educated to treat in all age groups from infants to the elderly.

Acupuncturists are trained to treat the entire individual rather than the specific illness or condition. In order to determine the proper course of treatment, they consider the patient's physical, mental and emotional condition and provide support to patients with chronic diseases. Acupuncture specialists treat a variety of medical conditions, symptoms, and side effects, including chronic pain (e.g., headache, back pain, arthritis), nausea and vomiting (e.g., after surgery or chemotherapy), stroke rehabilitation, menstrual cramps, cosmetic problems, skin diseases etc. 

They need good judgment, excellent interpersonal skills, and the ability to maintain composure in any practice situation.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

Those who hold a degree (master's or doctor's) in Acupuncture can practice as an acupuncturist. This career requires proper training and experience, so one must make sure that they join in a renowned college for studying acupuncture courses.

Acupuncture courses teach students about the different aspects of Acupuncture like Acupuncture points of the body, Fundamentals of Acupuncture, Acupuncture Meridians, Five Element Theory, Ancilliary Acupuncture, Classical Acupuncture, Applied Acupuncture, history and philosophy of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Acupuncture theory, Practice of Acupuncture therapies etc. Students get in-depth knowledge about the art of inserting needles at the right points and giving relief to the patients, through these courses. 

SKILL REQUIREMENTS

Those interested in a career in Acupuncture, must have a keen interest in alternative medicine and holistic healing therapies. In order to succeed in their profession, Acupuncturists need to possess a few personal qualities, specifically people skills:

  • Excellent interpersonal, communication and listening skills
  • Understanding and sensitivity
  • Patience
  • Self-awareness and emotional stability
  • A logical approach to solving problems
  • Good hand-eye coordination and a steady hand

JOB MARKET

Most Acupuncturists work in private clinics. But in today’s broadening health care and self care systems, job opportunities are available for acupuncturists in all health related fields such as clinics, gyms, health centers, rehabilitation centers, recovery care units and psychiatric wards to entail a balanced level of health in the patient. One can do research or can find job as a teacher in any universities or institutes providing Acupuncture courses.

The requirement for practicing as acupuncturist varies from state to state. Some states require acupuncturists to be medical doctors or chiropractors.
