Pathways to Wellness takes great care
and responsibility that its practitioners are highly trained and talented
in their fields. Additionally, most clinicians are trained at Pathways
by Assistantship and Internship to acquire the knowledge and skills
in treatment of chronic and difficult conditions.
Our clinicians attend monthly clinical trainings
that we provide which are approved for continuing credit by the Massachusetts
Board of registration in Medicine. We offer advanced herbal and acupuncture
internship. Our staff has taught our methods both nationally and internationally
and are regularly asked to present at national and regional conferences
Because of the conditions that we treat, Pathways
is especially conscious of safety and sterile procedure. All clinicians
must be specially trained at hiring and are required to have annual
classes in safety procedures, OSHA regulations and CPR.
Pathways practitioners have immediate access
to fellow practitioners of both similar and diverse therapies for consultation.
Additionally, the Clinical Director is available for consultation.
All Pathways acupuncturists are licensed in
the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and are additionally trained by Pathways
over a period of years. Many are or have been instructors at New England
School of Acupuncture and many have additional private practices outside
of Pathways in various parts of Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Please
