DOMs are Acupuncturists. They are among the most committed, best-trained health care practitioners anywhere.
Doctors of Oriental Medicine (DOMs) have completed a rigorous education with over 3,000 hours of classroom and clinical experience, supervised by working professional providers. They have studied acupuncture, herbal medicine, Asian bodywork, moving and breathing therapies, and nutrition. They must pass the Clean Needle Technique exam and National Board exams in Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, and Biomedicine, as well as a practical NM State Board exam before becoming licensed in our state, after which they stay current with continuing education.
