The Auriculotherapy Certification Institute(ACI) was established in 1999 to provide certification and training in this specialized health care field. Noted professionals in this field have determined the criteria for certification and the status of training organizations educating individuals seeking certification in auriculotherapy. The certification process requires proof of education in this area, a written test, a practicum exam, and verification of clinical hours conducting auriculotherapy. After passing the written and practice exam, each ACI applicant must submit 20 vignettes of patients they seen with auriculotherapy. There will be separate certificates for auriculotherapy done by transcutaneous stimulation, auricular acupuncture with needle insertion procedures, and ear reflexology manual manipulation. A certificate does not replace the need for clinical licensure within one's profession.
Individuals interested in finding out more about certification can contact Dr. Terry Oleson by phone at (323) 656-2084 or FAX (323) 656-2085, or at firstname.lastname@example.org
