In addition, each acupuncturist in New Mexico must pass a national certification exam from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

The education also includes over 400 hours of modern allopathic, or biomedicine. This allows acupuncturists to provide true primary care by integrating modern science and traditional wisdom. In addition to acupuncture, acupuncturists often prescribe herbal formulas according to Traditional Chinese Medicine that have been tested over time and refined to nourish the health of modern patients.
