What is an Acupuncturist?

An Acupuncturist is a person who has graduated from a nationally accredited Acupuncture School. At Six Fishes, our practitioners have different credentials based on their training, as well as the state where they received their education. Acupuncturists must pass written and practical state and national board exams to become licensed. Licensed acupuncturists are also certified in Clean Needle Technique.
Currently, most states require a 4-year Master’s degree in Acupuncture (MSAC) or Traditional Oriental Medicine (MSTOM) from an accredited acupuncture school for licensure. Training includes all aspects of biomedicine as well as Traditional Oriental Medicine.
At Six Fishes, most of our practitioners all have additional national certification in Chinese Herbology.
