Looking To Acupuncture As A Career For The Future

| June 19, 2010 | 1 Comment | 623 views

It used to be that a person had very few options when it came to what career they were going to be working in. In times past, children would follow in their parents' career fields. Then, after a period of time, there was the freedom to choose any career path that one could possibly want.

Flying a plane, becoming a doctor, and learning to be a teacher were all options open to everyone. No longer would social status and class be a hinder to future employment. Children now are asked from the age of five on "What do you want to be when you grow up?" There probably are not that many children who would say that they wish to be an acupuncturist or practice alternative medicine, but the choice is there.

Acupuncture can provide positive results for many different groups of people, which can make the profession an attractive one. Those who train in acupuncture can eventually treat athletes and individuals involved in all sorts of sports, the procedure being widely recognized by coaches and sports therapists.

The psychological field also approves of acupuncture, as it has shown to relieve depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. The medical field in general encourages the positive results of acupuncture, knowing it to easy sore muscles and sickness.

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AOM) is a billion dollar industry. It is expected to double in size within the next twenty years, as more and more people turn to acupuncture to deal with health and mental issues in a different, more naturalistic way.

When more people begin to request a certain service, this leads to an increased need for practitioners. In the United States, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) requires that acupuncturists be licensed and trained.

This training is actually quite extensive and can take many years, definitely not as easy as running down to the local city hall and picking up a piece of paper. It is training that teaches the student how to identify the patient's problem, suggest a treatment plan, and then begin the process of treating the issue.

When looking for instruction in acupuncture, it's very important to make sure the school or college you choose for training is accredited. No training without proper certification will be considered solid once you enter the acupuncture profession. What's more, make sure to compare educational facilities for the quality of training they offer.

Is the material studied rich and in depth? Does the college provide hands-on training for its students? Is the length of the course enough to provide strong credentials? One thing is quite certain, though - acupuncture, with the right training, is a good career choice for the future.
