Chiropractors, dentists and podiatrists must have at least 200 hours of acupuncture instruction in order to practice acupuncture.

Acupuncture is not within the scope of practice of a physician assistant.

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.
