Licensed acupuncturists achieve key recognition with US government

How one certifies one’s existence is a much debated subject among philosophers. Cogito ergo sum is the way Descartes put it — “I think therefore I am.” This is not sufficient for the US government when it comes to emerging professions. What is needed is a “unique occupational code” from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The nation’s licensed acupuncturists – currently over 30,000 in total – has finally made the grade according to a July 25, 2016 media release from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
