Georgia Laws & Details
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.
