Beautiful beaches and seaside resorts are only part of the allure of Virginia, which is the birthplace of eight U.S. presidents (and counting). The state, situated in the Mid-Atlantic region, borders the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean on the east, while the Blue Ridge Mountains rise in the west. Virginia also boasts the oldest legislature in the country, the Virginia General Assembly. Although Virginia itself doesn’t have any acupuncture schools, it does have an excellent network of colleges and universities where you can take undergraduate programs that will prepare you for masters-level studies in acupuncture.
When you’ve completed your undergraduate degree and all the prerequisites, look to neighboring North Carolina and Pennsylvania for acupuncture schools, where you’ll learn in both classroom and clinical settings. Professional instructors teach different modalities, and your schooling can be complete in three or four years, inclusive of clinical observation and internship sessions. Acupuncture schools’ programs integrate Chinese and Western medicine into their curricula, ensuring graduates leave with a well-rounded education. When you return to Virginia after acupuncture school, gain licensure and start your own acupuncture practice anywhere in the state, from Richmond to Norfolk, and everywhere in between.
