Acupuncture in Physiotherapy

The Government's recent decision not to introduce statutory regulation [SR] of Acupuncture has a significant effect on Physiotherapists who wish to use Acupuncture within their clinical practice.

It has also caused tutors at ALIED, along with many other experienced Physiotherapist Acupuncture Tutors, to reappraise our affiliations.

Clinical Support

All students who have attended ALIED training courses may request clinical support from ALIED if they are having problems with a patient or with their clinical use of Acupuncture.

Simply E-Mail your query to ALIED and we will do our best to give you prompt, evidence-based advice on the problem you are experiencing.
