Acupuncture Degrees

To be able to perform acupuncture, one must receive a degree from an accredited school. Students must receive a master�s degree to become nationally certified and to earn state licensure. Doctoral degrees are offered at many schools, but are not required. Students interested in research may opt to pursue higher education.

Degree titles vary. At South Baylor University in Los Angeles, students can study for the Master of Science of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine as well as for a doctoral degree.

New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine offers the Master of Science in Health Science/Acupuncture Program, and a Master of Science in Health Science/Oriental Medicine Program.

At the Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, students can work toward a master�s in acupuncture (MAc) and a master�s degree in acupuncture and oriental medicine (MAcOM). The Oregon College of Oriental Medicine also offers the MAcOM, as well as a doctor of acupuncture and oriental medicine program.

To practice acupuncture, one must be licensed in their home state, though some states do not license or permit acupuncturists to practice within the state. A chart reviewing requirements state-by-state is available from the National Commission for Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

Many states also require acupuncturists to be nationally certified by NCCAOM. Acupuncturists who receive NCCAOM certification in oriental medicine may be designated as a Diplomate in Oriental Medicine or use the abbreviation Dipl. O.M. in their title. Acupuncturists may use Diplomate in Acupuncture or Dipl. Ac.

Acupuncture shows promise in treating Acid Reflux Disease

Although the cause of gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is still unknown, there are treatments available on the market to help with the symptoms and perhaps even repair some of the tissue damage. The problem is one of side effects and limited effectiveness for all the current treatments.

A 2005 Taiwanese study reported in the American Journal of Physiology—Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology opened eyes by pointing to the effectiveness of electrical acupoint stimulation in reducing the key mechanism of GERD, transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxations (TLESRs). This important muscle allows food to pass into the stomach when working normally. In people who have GERD, the muscle relaxes at the wrong times, allowing stomach acid to churn up into the esophagus and resulting in heartburn symptoms.

By applying only mild stimulation to an acupoint on the wrist known as Neiguan, researchers were able to reduce the frequency of TLESRs from six to 3.5 an hour in research subjects. Sham stimulation of a hip point produced no comparable change.

Researchers cautioned that it’s still a big leap from these promising results to a reliable cure for GERD.

Where Western Medicine Fails, TCM may offer hope

“I became convinced that drugs used in Western medicine do not outweigh the side effects in many cases,” Dr. Lu says. “Unlike Western medicine, which commonly strives to control symptoms, Chinese medicine focuses on the cause of the illness, and treats the cause.”...

Acupuncture — perhaps the most recognizable form of TCM — involves extremely thin metal needles that are inserted just beneath the skin to stimulate the flow of Qi. It can be effective for migraine headaches, osteoarthritis of the knee, lower back pain, nausea and vomiting associated with pregnancy or chemotherapy, and stress relief. Starting April 1, B.C. residents on a premium assistance program will be able to see a registered acupuncturist under the Medical Service Plan...

TCM therapies are indeed vast, and include food cures (treatment of disease through diet), herbal medicines, massage, and exercises such as Qi Gong and Tai Chi, which strengthen the mind and body.

TCM therapies are also increasingly being used in conjunction with, or as an alternative to, Western medicine to treat infertility. After several months of failing to get pregnant, Vancouver couple Melissa and Jason (their surname was withheld by request) approached their family doctor with their concerns. “I knew it would be trickier for me to have a baby because of my irregular [menstrual] cycles, which were anywhere between two and four months,” Melissa recalls. But after running the usual blood tests to determine that they were both healthy, their doctor wanted them to adopt a “wait-and-see approach for eight months”....

Dr. Brown — a former chartered accountant who, like Lu, pursued TCM as a career after it cured him of a chronic condition — says TCM treatments can enhance fertility naturally. “When a woman is under stress, hormones are diverted away from the reproductive organs in a fight-or-flight response. Acupuncture helps to increase the blood flow to the reproductive organs, which creates a richer [uterine] lining for ovulation and implantation.”... As any generalist can say they treat reproductive health, Brown recommends talking to your family doctor or fertility clinic to find a TCM doctor that specializes in the field of reproductive health. B.C. residents requiring assistance in locating a registered doctor of TCM, a practitioner, an herbalist, or an acupuncturist can also contact the College of Chinese Medicine at 604 783-7100, or visit

Acupuncture for Infertility

The Best AlternativeTreatments For Infertility

by apple33p
When it comes to traditional Chinese medicine and infertility, both the herbs and acupuncture are essential in order for the medications to be effective. The idea behind it is to treat the imbalance in the body through the use of acupuncture and herbs as they will restore the disharmony.

With alternative source of treatment, the conventional infertility treatments and traditional Chinese medicine must be combined. The traditional Chinese medicine and conventional infertility treatments are used when all avenues are exhausted as it will lead to a higher possibility of conceiving.

Acupuncture has existed for many centuries in certain cultures as a mean of treating all form of diseases. Acupuncture assists in regulating the flow of blood by the stimulation of the central nervous system as neurotransmitters and neurohormones are released as a result which help to heal the body.

In addition to, acupuncture discharge endorphins which help to fight pain; giving rise to a sensation of wellness. In the East where it was found and even in the west, acupuncture is used to treat a variety of conditions and the association between acupuncture and infertility is still being studied.

Although acupuncture may seem an odd treatment for infertility, it has become increasing popular in helping infertile couples. The idea that needles are used can be discomforting but it is just a painless process of treating infertility. Just like an ant bite and slight bruising might occur but in general, acupuncture causes no major discomfort. Other form of infertility treatment cause more discomfort than acupuncture treatment, so there is nothing to worry.

The use of acupuncture for infertility is effective because our body have energy channels and they flow to different portions of the body and the surface of the body. With blockages, the energy flows are impeded and acupuncture will free the obstructions. With the release of chemicals into the muscle, brain and spinal, the healing is in process. Acupuncture has proven to assist in certain areas that normal infertility treatments are not able to.

Before embarking on acupuncture or alternative treatment, there is a need to consult your infertility physician and if the physician found out from the infertility tests that the problem is structural; then the combination of both traditional acupuncture and herbs treatment together with infertility treatment will not be helpful.

Knowing the cause is essential to treating infertility and acupuncture is a good start. The focus will be on three vital organs and they are kidney, spleen and liver as they have a direct bearing on the reproductive organs. Traditional Chinese medicine concentrate on these three organs and acupuncture will directly impact the reproductive organs through the treatment of these three organs.

Herbal supplements go well with traditional Chinese medicine by enhancing infertility treatment. Disharmony in the infertility treatment will be assisted by consuming herbal medications. Stress and anxiety can be reduced by their use and all in all, the treatment will improve the chances of conceiving.

As acupuncture is mostly used in treating infertility problem such as hormonal imbalances, structural abnormalities such as blockages of the fallopian tubes cannot be treated with acupuncture. With acupuncture, the body system is regulated and more blood flow to the vital organs and help in the regulation of the hormones. That will provide sufficient time for the body to recover especially for matter such as hormones imbalance. Acupuncture is best after conventional form of treatment are tried and in combination with such treatments.

As herbal supplements are sometimes used with acupuncture to boost acupuncture treatments and assist in curing infertility but certain herbs do impede the effect of infertility pills, so it is wise to consult your physician. Acupuncture is most effective when female is having the in vitro fertilization cycle. As acupuncture assist in calming the body as well as reducing anxiety, adding to in vitro fertilization success.

As there is an effective link between acupuncture and infertility, so it will be beneficial to look at the treatment. Just scheduling a few sessions may contribute to conception.

One of the best alternative forms of infertility treatments is acupuncture but it is better to find out more before using it and traditional form of treatment is very effective with acupuncture. Although traditional form of treatment is still controversial, there is little harm in taking a look after all else fail. Acupuncture as a form of treatment is worth a look at and conception might just occur.
