Oregon Laws & Details
Medical doctors and ostepaths may practice acupuncture without specific training.
Acupuncture is not within the scope of practice of podiatrists, physician assistants and chiropractors.
A physician may not supervise an acupuncturist unless the physician is also a licensed acupuncturist.
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.
