Welcome to the Michigan Board of Acupuncture website! Our goal is to provide up-to-date information on various topics related to the practice of acupuncture in Michigan. We hope you find this information helpful and invite you to check out our website often.

Public Act 140 of 2019 changes the profession of Acupuncture from a registration to requiring a license. We are currently developing rules related to Acupuncture Licensure.

** We are no longer accepting paper applications for Acupuncture Licenses. You can apply online at Our online system provides more efficient services to those applying for an Acupuncture license. If you are having problems completing the application process, please contact us at 517-241-0199 for assistance and we can help walk you through the process. Should you have further questions, please contact our Licensing Support Team at

In an effort to reduce the use of paper, effective January 1, 2022, licenses issued or renewed will only be sent electronically unless a paper copy of the license is requested during the application or renewal process.
