New Edition of the Acupuncture Laws Book

“Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine State Laws and Regulations, 2005 Edition” (NAF Publications; March 2005/$39.95) is your one-stop resource for information about the regulation of the practice of acupuncture in the United States. Forty states now have statutes governing the practice of acupuncture and no two are alike.

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine State Laws and Regulations, 2005 Edition, is the seventh edition of this widely popular and essential guide to acupuncture and Oriental medicine regulation in the United States. It is a "must have" reference for timely information on the scope of practice of AOM practitioners, educational requirements for licensure, insurance reimbursement, and contact information for each state that regulates acupuncture. New to this edition, is an introductory chapter on the regulatory process, the development of
standards for the profession, and the practice of acupuncture by healthcare practitioners other than professional acupuncturists. The book also provides listings of additional resources of information about this exciting and rewarding healthcare field.

Whether you are a student of Oriental medicine, a state regulator, a practitioner ready to move to another state, or a patient wanting assurance about your practitioner’s competency, this book will assist you in making informed decisions and intelligent plans.
