Herbalist Certification in Arizona - AZ

With one of the highest population growth rates in the United States for the past twenty years, Arizona’s temperate climate and natural beauty attracts visitors and new residents alike and offers many opportunities for medical practitioners.

At this time, the State of Arizona and the Arizona Department of Health Services does not require separate licensing for practicing herbalists. However, many herbalists chose to undergo voluntary certification through the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH) to demonstrate their competency and distinguish themselves from others in this area.

However, since many practitioners of Chinese medicine also practice acupuncture, be advised that the State of Arizona Acupuncture Board of Examiners does require that an acupuncturist be licensed. The qualifications for licensure includes successfully graduating or completing an accredited or board-approved program of acupuncture; completion of at least 1850 hours of training, including 800 hours of clinic work; and completing a clean needle technique course. In addition, the National Commission must certify an applicant for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) or pass the NCCAOM exams required to be certified by NCCAOM, or licensed by another state with similar standards to Arizona. An application for licensure can be obtained at http://www.azacuboard.az.gov/pdf/08--Rev-init-license-app-form-w-cit.pdf.  As of September 2010, there were 491 active licensed acupuncturists and 69 active certificated auricular 
acupuncturists in the State of Arizona.
