How Can I Ensure My Alternative Therapist is Credentialed?

Question: How can I find out if my complementary or alternative therapy practitioner is properly credentialed?

Answer: The best way to go about it since each state is a little different is call your state department of education and the licensing board to find out which of these therapies is licensed in your state -- the acupuncture is licensed in some states; massage therapists are licensed -- and then you can follow up by choosing someone who has the proper credentials.
