Finding a Trigger Point Acupuncturist

Step 1. Search for acupuncturists in your area.

Step 2. See if they list trigger point as a style.

Step 3. Ask them for their definition of “trigger point acupuncture”.
Tip: Don’t ask them by telling them, let them answer. For example, “will you please tell me what trigger point acupuncture is?”. Don’t say, “do you do the type of acupuncture where you get muscles to twitch by …”

It’s too easy for someone to say “yes” just to get you into their office.

Step 4. Ask for referrals to patients that have received trigger point acupuncture.

Step 5. Search the web for the practitioner, looking for other peoples experience of their treatment.
