My Certifications

Diplomate of Acupuncture

NCCAOM Certified

A Diplomate of Acupuncture is an acupuncturist who is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM®). It is a considerable professional achievement to earn the designation Diplomate of Acupuncture (NCCAOM). NCCAOM certification indicates to employers, patients, and peers that one has met national standards for the safe and competent practice of acupuncture as defined by the acupuncture and Oriental medicine (AOM) profession. For additional information, about the Diplomate of Acupuncture, please visit the NCCAOM Website.

New York State Licensed Acupuncturist

The designation L.Ac. signifies that an acupuncturist is licensed in the state to practice acupuncture.  This requires that a candidate meets the State Education requirements of a Master's Degree level program of at least three years, including both academic classes and supervised clinical practice.  The education includes the history and theory of Oriental Medicine, as well as detailed knowledge of each of the over 300 acupuncture points on the human body, their functions and combinations.  In addition, the use of non-needle therapies may be employed as primary or adjunt therapies.

NCCAOM certification is a national designation, and achieved above and beyond state licensure.

*Please be aware that a certified acupuncturist is not the same as a licensed acupuncturist.  Certified acupuncturists have varying levels of training which may be as little as 200 hours, depending on their primary practice.  Medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, medical acupuncturists and detox technicians, among others, may all be certified and practice legally.


Cosmetic Rejuvenation Acupuncture

In addition to completing requirements for New York State and NCCAOM, I traveled to Colorado to complete an extensive clinical training program, approved by NCCAOM, with Denise Ellinger, L.Ac., creator of the Cosmetic Rejuvenation Acupuncture system and co-creator of the Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncure system.

Medical Qigong Practitioner (M.Q.P.)

To become a Certified Medical Qigong Practitioner, I completed a New York State Education Department approved progam with Linda Y. Qiu, L.Ac., M.Q.P., M.D.(China), in the practice of Zhineng Qigong.  This training included academic/theory class as well as supervised clinical training under Dr. Qiu.
