At the end of 2007, the IL Acupuncture Practice Act was renewed without concessions and without any other professions gaining access to acupuncture and additional modalities. This was an important process in the acupuncture profession for IL-not only for practitioners but also to patients. Our profession and medicine must stay protected and secure for the future of our community. At this time, in our state, MD’s and Chiropractors are allowed to practice acupuncture. It is vital that we keep our lawmakers educated of the requirements for strict and permanent standards regarding the practice of acupuncture.
ILaaom stands committed to the belief that only practitioners with our level of training should be allowed to perform acupuncture.
