MD's and D.O.'s alone are allowed to practice acupuncture. No training is required. Chiropractors can practice acupuncture with an additional 100 hours training. There is an interesting loophole that says that its okay to perform acupuncture if its part of a religious ceremony as a form or worship, devotion or healing where no drugs or medicines are prescribed and no surgical or physical operations are performed. It is unknown if the insertion of a needle is considered surgery.
