AcupunctureforSleepApnea 300 x 250A treatment is only as good as its practitioner — this holds true if you are looking at acupuncture as an alternative treatment for sleep apnea.

In order for you to get the maximum benefit of acupuncture for sleep apnea, you need to find an acupuncturist who can be trusted and knows what he or she is doing.

Tips on What to Look for in a Sleep Apnea Acupuncturist


The acupuncturist should be licensed and registered with reputable organizations like the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine or American Academy of Medical Acupuncture in the United States.

The acupuncturist should ask you questions about your condition and past history with illness, and examine you accordingly.

The acupuncturist should be sensitive, gentle, patient, and compassionate, and should always inquire about the way you feel throughout the session. A good acupuncturist is one who is healthy and energized himself or herself, so that good energy can flow from the acupuncturist to the patient and assist healing even more.

Now, there may be several acupuncture clinics in your area and you may become overwhelmed with the choice of which one offers the best service. To avoid further uncertainty in your decision, make sure that you ask your family members and friends for their recommendation of acupuncturists they have consulted in the past.

You can also use an online acupuncture directory to look up local acupuncturists. An example of this would be Acufinder and Healthprofs. If you live in the UK, you can look for an acupuncturist using the British Acupuncture Council’s webpage, while Australians can look up acupuncturists using the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association’s webpage.

You can also look in newspapers, classifieds, and other business listings for acupuncturists in your area.

Once you find the acupuncturist you feel will help you get rid of your condition, make sure you ask him or her if he or she knows how to treat sleep apnea. Not many acupuncturists are trained to do this, so it would be good practice to ask one before even committing to his or her services.
