Licenses for Chinese medicine practitioners?


Question from MaggieP: What kind of license do Chinese medical practitioners have?
Answers - Raymond Chang It depends. For herbal medicine, there's no licensing in this country. Licensing usually goes state by state. Most states have licensing for acupuncture but no licensing for herbs. Herbs you can get without a prescription and they're over the counter to begin with, so it does not have a licensing requirement, Chinese herbs notwithstanding. There's license for massage and acupuncture.
