What You Must Know Before You Try Dry Needling

Recently, the acupuncture profession has found itself defending against PT’s and Chiropractors who practice something called Dry Needling: that is, inserting acupuncture needles into points in the body. Our profession as a whole is strongly against this practice. PT’s receive a mere 200-300 hours training, compared to the 4000 hours that an acupuncturist receives. State after state, across the country has fought against this practice. Recently, Kristin Horner Warren, an acupuncturist in Colorado investigated and then wrote about this egregious practice. Please read it and learn why you should only allow a nationally certified and licensed acupuncturist to insert acupuncture needles into your body.
