Practice of Auricular Acupuncture and State Laws

I am a graduate form Samra Univ.1993. I am living in Brazil and had my California license lapsed. Can I practice auricular acupuncture without a license while I prepare to take the state exam again?

Hello Alex, Generally

Hello Alex,

Generally speaking no. While many states have different sets of laws and certifications for fully trained acupuncturists and auricular/detox specialists - few (if any) allow you to needle anyone, anywhere without a license.

If you are interested in re-establishing your license in California you'll want consult the California Acupuncture Board website.
