Acupuncture within Physiotherapy Practice

Acupuncture Training for Physiotherapists

For some years now the ALIED Foundation Acupuncture Course has been M-Level Accredited to the University of Hertfordshire.

Some years ago, the government decided statutory regulation of the Acupuncture professions would not take place, as the Acupuncture professions effectively self regulate. Membership of the HCPC and attendance on an extended practice training course are all that is required for Chartered Physiotherapists to practise Acupuncture as an integral part of their treatment. Membership of any specific stakeholder group, CIG or Professional Network [PN] is not required.

In line with many other tutors we no longer bother with AACP accreditation, as it limits both the material we can teach and the students who can attend courses.

Please be assured these changes are designed to enhance the quality of ALIED courses and extend the material taught as a direct benefit to students. In so doing we hope to continue to promote and improved the use of Acupuncture by Chartered Physiotherapists as we have over a 20 year period.


Most Physiotherapists will not need any additional Professional Liability Insurance to practise Acupuncture. Please see our Insurance Information page for more information.

Acupuncture in Physiotherapy

The Government's recent decision not to introduce statutory regulation [SR] of Acupuncture has a significant effect on Physiotherapists who wish to use Acupuncture within their clinical practice.

It has also caused tutors at ALIED, along with many other experienced Physiotherapist Acupuncture Tutors, to reappraise our affiliations.

All students who have attended ALIED training courses may request clinical support from ALIED if they are having problems with a patient or with their clinical use of Acupuncture.
