How Can I Find a Practitioner in My Area?

To find a qualified complementary and alternative medical healthcare practitioner, you may want to contact medical regulatory and licensing agencies in your state. 

These agencies may be able to provide information about a specific practitioner’s credentials and background. Many states license practitioners who provide alternative therapies such as acupuncture, chiropractic services, naturopathy, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and massage therapy. 

You may also locate practitioners by asking your healthcare provider, or by contacting a professional association or organization. These organizations can provide names of local practitioners, and provide information about how to determine the quality of a specific practitioner’s services.

Also, you may find complementary and alternative healthcare practitioners by asking people you trust, like friends and family members, who may have experience with practitioners of complementary and alternative medicine.
