Practice by Others

Medical doctors and osteopaths may practice acupuncture in Arkansas without any specific training. The board of medicine has not set specific training requirements for the practice of acupuncture by medical doctors. 

Chiropractors may practice acupuncture in Arkansas as part of chiropractic practice upon completion of one hundred (100) hours training in acupuncture/meridian therapy from a college accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education.

NOTE: Look for a physician with formal training in the practice of acupuncture. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine is an art and a science that takes years to master.  While any licensed physician can stick needles into you, for a positive experience and results, find an acupuncturist with experience treating a similar condition (with acupuncture) to what you have.
