ZRH: searching for a Doctor (FMH) who performs acupuncture

Does anyone know of a doctor (swiss recognised) ie FMH who performs acupuncture in the Zürich/Zug/Schwyz region?

At present I am only on Grundversicherung (pre-exisiting medical condition from Australia), and unfortunately cannot get alternative medicine included in my Krankenkasse...

To save about 3000CHF, I'd be interested in anyone's recommendations!

Thank you for your help,
Lara (in Lachen SZ, but prepared to travel for migraine relief!!!)

Re: ZRH: searching for a Doctor (FMH) who performs acupuncture

Acupuncture is included in the basic Swiss health insurance! When it is administered by FMH doctors,

Section 10, alternative medicine, (10 Komplementärmedizin)

Massnahmen. Leistungspflicht. Voraussetzungen. gültig ab,

Akupunktur ------- Ja -------(see below) ----- 1. July 1999

Durch Ärztinnen oder Ärzte, deren Weiterbildung in dieser Disziplin durch die Verbindung der Schweizer Ärztinnen und Ärzte (FMH) anerkannt ist.

Thanks!
That's why I'm seeking one with FMH approval.
Do you know anyone good?
