Practice by Others

A licensed physician (i.e. medical doctor or osteopath) may practice acupuncture in Kentucky.  There is no specific training required for a medical or osteopathic doctor to practice acupuncture.

Chiropractors may not practice acupuncture.

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.
