Founded in 1977 and based in Southern California, South Baylo University (SBU) has grown to be one of the largest acupuncture schools in the United States. SBU has been granted by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) and the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) to award the Master of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MSAOM) and the Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM). Both degree programs are offered in three languages: Chinese, English, and Korean, and prepare students for professional life as licensed primary health care providers in the field of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. The university stimulates students and faculty to excel academically in a nurturing and supportive environment.

A non-degree Acupressure and Tuina Massage certificate program is also available.
