Acupuncture Training and Education
In the state of Utah, in order for chiropractors to practice acupuncture legally in
their offices, they need to attend a 100 course as shown below.
Once this course has been attended the chiropractor must pass the National Board of
Chiropractic Examiners Acupuncture Exam, prior to practicing acupuncture in the state of Utah.
If you have decided to have a chiropractor administer acupuncture treatment, ask to
see their certificate of passing the National Board of Chiropractic Acupuncture Exam, just because the chiropractor
has taken the 100 course does not legally allow the chiropractor to administer acupuncture in the State of
Utah Acupuncture Licensing Act -

physician may not claim to be a licensed acupuncturist without the acupuncturist licensure.
Utah Chiropractic Physician Practice Act Rule
It is illegal for a chiropractor to advertise as an acupuncturist,
L.Ac. or Dipl. Ac. either verbally or in print.
Once again, you should read about the
differences between the different educational programs for acupuncture education and training before
