(2) Not occupy, share or use office space in which another licensee practices chiropractic and/or acupuncture;
(3) Desist and refrain from the practice of chiropractic and/or the practice of acupuncture in any form either as a principal or employee or agent of another and shall not furnish chiropractic and/or acupuncture services.
