About the NCALB


The purpose of the NCALB is to promote the health, safety and welfare of the North Carolina public through the licensure and regulation of acupuncturists.  The Board reviews all applications and ensures the credentials of all licensed acupuncturists meet a high standard and that only qualified individuals are permitted to practice in North Carolina.


The NCALB office is also a place where North Carolinians can call with questions about a licensed acupuncturist, and inquire about practitioners.  It's also a place where the public can turn to file a complaints against acupuncturists that they may feel are in violation of the law.


The NCALB also provides services to individuals applying for licensure as well as those already licensed in North Carolina.  The Board is the practitioner's resource for any questions regarding NC's laws and regulations, continuing education requirements as well as trends and advances in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in North Carolina.
