As the law currently stands almost anyone with as little as a weekend's training can put needles in your body; so long as they do not call themselves Acupuncturists, or infer that they are. That is a fact.
We now have a plethora of dry needle therapists who are not registered Acupuncturists - hence the use of the term dry needling. Their training can be as short as a weekend course or less. Yes! Some do more, most do less. That is a Fact.
A Registered Acupuncturist has a four year degree or its equivalent. She or he cannot call themselves an Acupuncturist if they do not have this minimum qualification and are registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Agency (AHPRA). That is a Fact.
When you are choosing your Acupuncturist you need to make sure he or she is a registered Acupuncturist. How do you do that? Check the AHPRA Practitioner register and/or check the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA) register.
Make sure you are in safe hands, consult a registered Acupuncturist.
