Regulation of Acupuncture: A Complementary Therapy Framework

Finding 6: The California Acupuncture Board has missed significant opportunities to protect the public, particularly in the areas of consumer information and herb-related safety.

Many of the specific issues that the Governor and the Legislature asked the Commission to review have festered because the Acupuncture Board has often acted as a venue for promoting the profession rather than regulating the profession. As a result, the board also has missed opportunities to protect the public by providing accurate and complete information on individual practitioners and the therapies they can provide.

The board also has not adequately incorporated emerging scientific evidence into board policies, regulations and public communications.
