Practice by Others
Medical doctors, osteopaths, chiropractors, dentists and podiatrists must meet the same requirements, pass an examination, and be licensed as an acupuncturist in order to practice acupuncture in Montana.
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.
