Q: I have read that acupuncture can be used as a facial rejuvenation. What are your thoughts on this?

Q: I am a beauty therapist who would really love to offer Facial/Cosmetic Acupuncture for my clients. however, I am not interested in any other form of acupuncture. Do I still need to do the full university course to learn Body Acupuncture or is there another course I can take that only teaches Facial/Cosmetic Acupuncture?

A: This is a hot potato! And you're probably asking the wrong people - we have a public commitment to degree-level training as the entry standard to the profession, and a Code of Professional Conduct which forbids our members from training anyone in aspects of treatment unless they are already registered healthcare professionals or existing acupuncture practitioners.
