Minnesota Laws & Details

Practitioner Title

Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.)

Requirements

Applicants must have current, active NCCAOM certification in acupuncture.

Reciprocity/Endorsement:  The statute provides for reciprocity for individuals who hold a current license or certificate as an acupuncturist from another jurisdiction if the board determines that the standards for certification or licensure in the other jurisdiction meet or exceed the requirements for licensure in Minnesota, and a letter is received from that jurisdiction that the acupuncturist is in good standing in that jurisdiction.

Practice by Others

Medical doctors and osteopaths may practice acupuncture in Minnesota without any specific training.

Chiropractors must be certified with 100 hours of training. 

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.
