Advice: How to choose an acupuncturist
The New Zealand Register of Acupuncturists (NZRA) is the longest established and largest democratic and professional body representing traditionally trained practitioners of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine in New Zealand.
When choosing to be treated by a member of NZRA, the general public of New Zealand can be assured that they are in the hands of a safe and fully competent practitioner who meets the highest standards of education, professional conduct and practice. All members of NZRA are bound by the Rules and Ethical Guidelines of the organisation and are required to complete on-going professional education in order to maintain their Annual Practising Certificate.
NZRA members have been recognised as ACC Treatment Providers since 1990. Acupuncture is particularly effective in the treatment of acute injuries but is also of benefit in reducing the shock and emotional component which is often experienced after an accident.
A member of the World Federation of Acupuncture-Moxibustion Societies (WFAS) and the World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies (WFCMS), NZRA also has strong affiliations with acupuncture associations particularly in Australia but also in China, the United States, Britain and throughout Europe.
Acupuncture is a part of Chinese Medicine. Many of our members practice other modalities of Chinese medicine including:
Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Tuina.
