There is no practice act for acupuncturists in South Dakota.

Practice by Others

Medical Doctors (M.D.s) and Doctors of Osteopathy (D.O.s) have no minimum training requirements.

Acupuncture has been ruled by the Attorney General to be within the scope of practice of chiropractors under the section allowing venipuncture for diagnostic purposes.  The board has adopted a policy requiring 100 hours of coursework, passage of the board exam on acupuncture and documentation of an additional 100 hours of education within two years.

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.
