Practice by Others

Medical doctors and osteopaths may practice acupuncture in Utah without any specific training but may not use the term "acupuncturist."

A chiropractor may practice acupuncture but may not use the term "acupuncturist" or claim to be a licensed acupuncturist without an acupuncture license.

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.
