HOW CAN I FIND A PROFESSIONAL IN MY AREA?
To get started, simply enter your Zip Code and distance to look at practitioners in your area. Refine your search by choosing
specific services, practice details, or specialty areas you�re looking for.
HOW CAN I SAVE MY SEARCH RESULTS?
When you find a listing that interests you, you can click on Add to My Favorites next to their profile. Hover over the My
Favorites tab on the upper right of the page to choose to email your list to yourself. Please note that for security purposes, your
Favorites list will not be stored once you leave the site or after a period of inactivity of more than 15 minutes.
HOW CAN I SHARE MY SEARCH RESULTS WITH SOMEONE ELSE?
Choose Add to My Favorites next to any of the profiles you are interested in. Then hover over My Favorites and choose to email
your favorites list. You can send the results to yourself, or a friend. Separate multiple emails with a comma.
HOW CAN I LEARN MORE ABOUT A PRACTITIONER?
Click on View My Profile on the right side of any listing to see their full profile. Most practitioners will also link their website
to their ACUDIRECT profile, where you can find additional information about a particular practitioner and their services.
WHAT IF I HAVE A QUESTION FOR A PRACTITIONER?
Click on the Email Me button on the right side of the listing you want to contact. Enter your contact information and question into the
email form that pops up, and hit send. Most practitioners will also link their website to their ACUDIRECT profile. There may be
additional ways to contact a practitioner through their website.
WHAT CAN I DO IF I DON'T FIND ANYONE IN MY AREA?
Thankfully, there are natural health professionals all over the country, so there are most likely practitioners in your area. Start by
searching in your Zip Code only. If you chose a distance very close (5 or 10 miles) and do not get results, then widen your search.
If you add many qualifiers onto your advanced search, you may limit your results. Start with a wider geographical scope and very basic
service or specialty searches.
WHAT CAN I DO IF I DON'T FIND SOMEONE IN MY AREA THAT OFFERS A PARTICULAR SERVICE OR SPECIALTY?
We intend ACUDIRECT to show those interested in natural health the options available in their area. If you are looking for a particular
service or specialty that doesn't seem to be offered, our recommendation would be to contact some of the practitioners in your search
results. Many natural health professionals service a wide variety of populations and healthcare needs- more than they could include in
one listing! Search the websites of professionals listed in your area, and use the Email Me option to ask them about your needs directly.
HOW ARE SEARCH RESULTS ORGANIZED?
Search results are ordered by the most to least relevant based on your search criteria. If you search in your Zip Code only, results will
appear with those closest to you at the top of the list. When you use the Refine Search list, it will add that criteria to organize your
results. For instance, if you choose, Acupuncture and Fertility, your top results will be those that offer both of those services in your
geographical area. If no one in your area lists all of the options you�ve chosen, then the results will be ordered by those that fit
WHAT DO THE NUMBERS MEAN NEXT TO ITEMS ON THE REFINE SEARCH LIST?
The numbers indicate how many results for that item are in your geographical area. For instance, if you see Nutritional Counseling (25),
that means there are 25 listings for professionals offering that service in your area.
