Find A Doctor Of Chinese Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture has been practiced in the West for several centuries, yet many Americans have never visited a doctor who practices this discipline. You can find a physician down who practices Chinese medicine by pursuing several avenues.


1. Ask your friends, family and coworkers for a recommendation.

2. Contact a local accredited school that offers a degree in Chinese medicine and ask for a list of doctors they would recommend.

3. Look on the Internet, particularly on the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine website at Once you locate an institution in your area, search their site or give them a call. Inquire if they have a list of graduates who practice in your area.

4. Search the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine website at Just like in Western medicine, a reputable practitioner of Chinese medicine will be nationally certified.

5. Search a Chinese medical doctor’s state certification by entering your state’s name and the words “acupuncture” and “licensing” into a Web search.
