What Happened to the Regulation of Acupuncture in the UK?
Do you remember that time not so long ago, when we held the idea of statutory regulation of acupuncture close to our bosom? Well, what ever happened to it?
It seems the practice of acupuncture in the UK hasn't gotten any better and in fact has gotten worse. More and more physiotherapists, doctors and the like are performing acupuncture. The public are experiencing acupuncture first through physiotherapists.
Governing associations such as the British Acupuncture Council don't seem to be holding our best interests to heart. In face, it seems that they are advocating the practice of acupuncture by the likes of physiotherapists. Where does that leave us more qualified acupuncturists?
