Alternative Health Care Education

This website was the vision of Dr. Teresa L. Marshall, Dr. Paula E. Prybylla and Melanie Esser, Office Manager at a chiropractic clinic.

The state of Minnesota enacted a law change in 2006 requiring all chiropractors certified in acupuncture to have two continuing education credits each year in acupuncture. Also in 2006, all continuing education credits in Minnesota could be done online.

This law change prompted Dr. Marshall and Dr. Prybylla, who both are certified in acupuncture and use acupuncture in their practices daily, to look at what information was currently available online regarding acupuncture continuing education credits. Much to their dismay, there was not a great deal of good practical information available. Thus the vision became a reality. PTM of Minnesota was the name given to the corporation formed by Dr. Paula, Dr. Teresa and Melanie. Work began on developing courses that provide practical content doctors can use in their daily practice, and also meet the requirements of continuing education.
