Massachusetts has it all. Cities such as Boston, Worcester, and Springfield boast exciting multicultural environments while tiny quaint communities preserve the appeal of colonial times. The Bay State is full of history, from Plymouth Rock to the Boston Tea Party. Tourists are drawn from all around to visit the battlefields of Lexington and Concord, Cape Cod Central Railroad, Nantucket Vineyard, Orchard House, and many other delightful attractions.
Massachusetts is a leader in health care and higher education, so it makes sense to begin training for your future here. The natural healing industry, specifically the field of acupuncture, is enjoying tremendous growth as Americans work harder to promote and maintain good physical health and mental well-being.
To become a Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.) in Massachusetts you must complete two years of training from a Committee on Acupuncture-approved school that includes a minimum of 1,350 clinical and didactic training plus 30 hours of herbal education. Necessary courses include anatomy, physiology, and biology as well as 100 hours of clinical diagnosis and treatment of patients. Graduates of Massachusetts acupuncture training schools must then pass the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and/or a clean needle technique course and oral exam.
