Sports Medicine Acupuncture
Sports Medicine Acupuncture incorporates principles from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Western Sports Medicine to view the patient’s injury from a truly integrated perspective.
The education required to become a Sports Medicine Acupuncturist goes much beyond normal acupuncture studies. The trainees undergo yearly lectures and laboratory courses with many hours of cadaver dissections. This is a continued education process with many hours of clasroom and cadaver laboratory work..
There are only seven acupuncturists in Massachusetts who are certified in Sports Medicine Acupuncture, I am one of those seven, and only two in Rhode Island including myself.
