Where does my GP fit into all this?

Don’t be surprised if you visit an acupuncturist who suggests that you should make an appointment to see your GP first, the skill of any acupuncturist is knowing when to treat and when to seek an expert medical opinion.

Since many people seek acupuncture treatment without a referral from their GP, an acupuncturist can frequently pick up signs and symptoms such as hypertension, changes in bowel habits, suspicious skin lesions, persistent cough with blood etc. which warrant early GP intervention.
