Accunect Practitioners have very diverse backgrounds. Some are licensed medical professionals with extensive training and education. And some have no medical training at all. We firmly believe that anyone can do Accunect and that people can help improve health dramatically even if they only know Accunect and nothing else. Given this diversity, it's useful to answer some questions about Accunect Practitioners.
Are Accunect Practitioners Licensed Health Professionals?
Some are, some aren't. Although we have a certification program, Accunect is not a licensed profession. Some of our practitioners are licensed doctors, acupuncturists, nurse, massage therapists, naturopaths, physical therapists, speech pathologists, occupational therapists, and psychotherapists. That's an incomplete list, but many of our practitioners hold some sort of other license, while others have no licensure whatsoever. You can still receive amazing Accunect sessions from a practitioner without a license, but they lack the professional training to give any medical advice.
Can My Accunect Practitioner Prescribe Drugs, Supplements, or Herbs or other advice?
Only if they have professional training in that field. Accunect is energy medicine only, and no prescribing of any kind is part of the Accunect healing system. That said, many practitioners may give dietary or exercise advice based on their other training, but that is not part of Accunect.
E.g., only a medical doctor can either prescribe medications or give advice on them - so the only Accunect practitioners who can discuss medication issues are the ones who are also licensed medical doctors. A naturopath who practices Accunect may well give advice on nutrition or supplements because they have extensive training in that area. An acupuncture physician may give advice on herbs and diet, but may lack the licensure to give advice on other supplements. A massage therapist, physical therapist or personal trainer who practices Accunect may give specific exercises as homework, but that will be based on their other training and is not part of Accunect.
Accunect practitioners without other training focus on balancing all the major energy systems of the body which is an awesome and powerful thing to do. We allow anyone to practice Accunect, regardless of other training or licensure, because we feel that Accunect alone balances the root causes of disease and produces great long term results. We also see value in health professionals practicing Accunect, because they can both balance energy and use their other knowledge to help manage symptoms in the short term.
