SNAP! CRACKLE! POP! Untrained Chiropractors Doing Acupuncture!
Date:4/8/2008

Insane or Just Plain Fraudulent Asks Top Acupuncture Physician

SOUTH FALLSBURG, N.Y., April 8, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Just when you thought it was safe to get acupuncture yet one more group of medical practitioners fights for the right to be shamelessly under qualified. This time it's chiropractors.

For licensed acupuncturists it's relatively ordinary to "cure" asthma, ADD, hot flashes, post-stroke injury, digestive problems, acne, difficult and chronic pain, shingles, autism and more says Master Acupuncturist Tom Chi, a Doctor of Acupuncture (RI) and NYS Licensed Acupuncturist.

Chi, who has practiced for 25+ years and done over 120,000 treatments, says acupuncture is the new medicine and will become the first choice for non-emergency medicine within the next 5 to 10 years.

"Real acupuncturists have a minimum of 4000 hours of training and must qualify for National Board Certification to become licensed," says Chi, "and every year we see a new group of irresponsible practitioners who want to become pretend acupuncturists and have the lobbying power to accomplish it."

This year it is New York State chiropractors that are seeking the right to practice acupuncture with just 300 hours of training. Bill #S590 incredibly would allow chiropractors to call themselves acupuncturists, a possibility that sends chills down the Licensed Acupuncturists spine!

Members of ASNY, the NYS acupuncture association say it is the power of lobbyists to promote greedy unqualified practitioners from podiatrists to chiropractors who want to follow the example of allopathic doctors who lobbied for the right to practice acupuncture with just 300 hours. "My patients who've been treated by medical doctors complain about lack of results and lack of disclosure about their incomplete training. Many consider it outright fraud," says Dr. Chi.

Chi has treated over 100 medical doctors, members of congress, even a chief medical officer of Pfizer Pharmaceuticals; the largest drug company in the world. He has performed acupuncture anesthesia while on staff at Catskill Regional Hospital and his patients have come from as far away as Lichtenstein and Venezuela after having tried western medicine and many other therapies.

His view is that a medical revolution is taking place and that acupuncture is emerging as the preferred therapy. Press coverage such as the 1998 Discovery Magazine article showing brain scan evidence which clearly validates acupuncture continues to support claims of amazing results for a broad range of health care problems.

Unfortunately say acupuncturists, those with the power to manipulate the legislature want to skip the real training and hang up a shingle. Chi exclaims, "This is unacceptable and borders on criminal. Our efforts need to go into making Medicare and Medicaid pay for acupuncture. It's time! It's important! Let your representatives know that essential standards must not be bypassed for the enrichment of unethical practitioners. We are in an evolving Healthcare Revolution," relates Chi. "Acupuncture repeatedly delivers results and HUGE healthcare savings! On Wednesday the legislature needs to say NO to poorly trained healthcare practitioners posing as real acupuncturists!"
