What Makes Us the Best Acupuncturists in Albuquerque?
Acupuncture is both a science and an art form, and it’s worth taking the time to find the best acupuncturist for your needs. At Acupuncture Associates of America, we want our patients to be comfortable, and we foster this comfort every step of the way – from providing a warm and inviting atmosphere in our clinic to educating our potential clients about the benefits of acupuncture and our available services.
What to Look for in an Acupuncturist
When looking for an acupuncturist, you will want to know the doctor’s qualifications and experience. Acupuncturists require specific education and licensing. Legally in New Mexico, the only people who can practice acupuncture are Doctors of Oriental Medicine (DOM), Medical Doctors (MD) and Chiropractors. Of these, only the DOM are specialists in acupuncture treatments.
Acupuncture is an effective treatment, but it is serious medicine, and it can cause harm if not practiced correctly. The technique must be performed accurately to ensure proper needle placement and prevent injury. A new set of disposable needles should be opened for each session to prevent the spread of disease.
The doctors of Acupuncture Associates are all licensed Doctors of Oriental Medicine, trained locally at Southwest Acupuncture College, one of the top schools in the country. Together, we have decades of experience in the field; Dr. Tapia-Reyes herself has been performing acupuncture for more than 13 years.
