An LAC degree can refer to a Licensed Acupunturist or a Licensed Associate Counselor. The title for a counselor could be LAC, ALC or LAPC depending on the state of issuance. Both fields require a formal education and licensing by a state approved board.
A Licensed Associate Counselor provides support for families and individuals seeking mental health support or substance abuse support.
Licensed Acupuncturists study Oriental medicine focused on acupuncture and Chinese herbology. Acupuncture deals with balancing patient energy levels through various means such as needling, acupressure, cupping and exercise. Acupuncture has proven to be a safe and cost-effective way of dealing with many physical issues.
