Practitioner Title

Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.)


An applicant must be NCCAOM certified in acupuncture, complete a national recognized clean needle technique course approved by the board, and be at least 21 years of age.  A grandparenting provision is included for individuals who practiced in the state prior to the passage of the law.

Practice by Others

Medical doctors and osteopaths must complete a 300 hour board approved course in order to practice acupuncture in Georgia.

Acupuncture is not within the scope of practice of chiropractors.

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.
