If you are a non-acupuncturist health professional, you will need to check the laws and regulations pertaining to your state to find out if you will be able to publicly practice acu detox after training.  When you become a member, you will have access to all laws in states that have an exemption or licensing for non-acupuncturist NADA trainees.
