Is there any training needed to be an acupuncturist?

Absolutely not true. Like any healthcare provider, training is required. Although the specific details may vary, to be a registered acupuncture practitioner requires completion of an approved program of study, successful completion of an approved examination and a minimum number of hours (typically around 500) within the two years previous to application for registration. Always check the credentials of any healthcare professional before using their services to ensure that they are qualified and able to perform safe treatments.
