Not many people will be willing to jump on the Chinese Medicine bandwagon especially in a mostly Western-influenced country like the Philippines. Starting out with a consultation session would be the best way to kick things off and educate yourself on what’s wrong, how it will help you and what processes will be needed.
Licensed vs Medical
I am a Licensed Acupuncturist. Most of the acupuncturists in the Philippines are medical acupuncturists, which means that they have earned a short certificate in acupuncture where they learn basic point protocols. 300 hours of instruction and clinical experience should be completed. Licensed acupuncturists on the other hand, requires at least 4050 hours of extensive studies and practice.
Acupuncture, sometimes coupled with Physical therapy and Chinese medicine, can cure almost anything. Some of the common illnesses that you can treat are Insomnia, Asthma, Stiff-necks, Bell’s Palsy, Facial Paralysis, Sinusitis and Tonsilitis among other things. If you are unsure, just schedule a consultation with me.
Is Acupuncture Legal?
The World Health Organization has in its list enumerated at least forty different conditions where acupuncture is effective. It is practiced legally worldwide, backed by scientific study. Being a practice requiring a license says enough of it’s legality. But all of these are only true when the process is actually performed by trained doctors. Try it out and join the millions of people that have benefited from this practice.
