Student, advocate, author, educator, healer…..not necessarily in that order. Miriam Lee is known in the U.S. as the pioneer of Western Acupuncture. Famous in the world of American Chinese Medicine, Miriam is best known as the inheritor of a 300 year old acupuncture technique passed down by one family for over 300 years. Her work in advocacy began in California in the 1970s, it was only then in 1976 that acupuncture was legalized in the U.S. Today, Montana has 168 acupuncturists licensed to practice in the state, but only 62 actually practicing within the states border. That is 1 acupuncturist for every 16,814 people in Montana.
