Idaho Laws & Details

Practitioner Title

Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.)

Requirements

An applicant must meet NCCAOM eligibilty criteria for certification in acupuncture or similar requirements approved by the board, successfully complete an acupuncture internship or equivalent experience approved by the board, obtain a passing grade on an examination (i.e. NCCAOM) or other demonstration of proficiency as required by the board, and successfully complete a blood borne pathogen course and comprehensive examination that incorporates clean needle techniques and OSHA procedures and requirements.

Reciprocity/Endorsement:  The board may grant a license to individuals who are currently licensed in acupuncture in another state, the District of Columbia, or a territory of the U.S. which has requirements equivalent to Idaho requirements.

Practice by Others

Medical doctors and osteopaths may practice acupuncture without any specific training, however, if they carry the title "Certified Acupuncturist" after their name, they have obtained certification from the acupuncture board.

Chiropractors must meet educational requirements and be "Certified Acupuncturists" under the Board of Acupuncture in order to practice acupuncture.

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.
