Illinois Laws & Details
Reciprocity/Endorsement: Endorsement is possible for applicants who are licensed in another state under laws substantially equal to the requirements in force in Illinois on that date.
Dentists can practice acupuncture without any specific training.
A physician assistant may not perform acupuncture even under supervision.
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.
