100 Hour Acupuncture Program

Acupuncture stands as a globally recognized and revered therapeutic art, spanning cultures and continents. As articulated by the esteemed institution, Johns Hopkins Medicine, acupuncture involves the meticulous insertion of slender, solid, metallic needles into the skin, subsequently brought to life through delicate and precise movements guided by the practitioner’s skilled hands or even through the application of controlled electrical impulses. Rooted in the timeless wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture asserts its identity as a distinct and ancient healing tradition.

It’s crucial to underscore that acupuncture does not find its place as a mere subset of chiropractic practices, nor does it represent a specialized technique within that realm. Rather, it commands a unique and autonomous position within the realm of holistic healing systems, synergistically aligning itself with the principles of chiropractic care. The curriculum at hand has been meticulously crafted to empower Doctors of Chiropractic with the knowledge and expertise required to seamlessly integrate acupuncture into their therapeutic repertoire alongside chiropractic methodologies.

Astoundingly, Dr. Hanson, the distinguished educator spearheading this certification course, not only holds the esteemed title of Doctor of Chiropractic but also stands as a Licensed Acupuncturist, a testament to his multidisciplinary expertise. Dr. Hanson’s wealth of experiential knowledge has been meticulously cultivated through the meticulous application of acupuncture within the sanctuary of his private practices.

State Regulations

Chiropractors practicing acupuncture often have to adhere to state-specific regulations and licensing requirements. Each state in the United States has its own chiropractic board or regulatory agency responsible for overseeing the practice of chiropractic and related modalities like acupuncture. The regulations and requirements can vary significantly from one state to another.

If you’re looking for information about regulations for chiropractors practicing acupuncture in a specific state, I recommend visiting the official website of the relevant state chiropractic board or regulatory agency. They typically provide detailed information about licensing requirements, scope of practice, continuing education, and any other regulations that chiropractors practicing acupuncture must follow in that particular state.

Remember that the field of healthcare regulations is subject to change, and it’s important to verify information from official and reliable sources.
