Michigan Health Go Local database now includes Acupuncturists. Since the State of Michigan does not yet require Acupuncturists to be licensed, practitioner credentials include either licensing in a state that does require a license to practice or certification through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). According to their website, NCCAOM is a non-profit organization whose "mission is to establish, assess, and promote recognized standards of competence and safety in acupuncture and Oriental medicine for the protection and benefit of the public." "NCCAOM Certification indicates to employers, patients, and peers that the practitioner has met national standards for the safe and competent practice of acupuncture as defined by the profession."
