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.
Went to Karla for some very painful back tension issues. This was my first time having any cupping or acupuncture done and she talked me through everything. Less than an hour later I walked out with tension gone and movement in my neck and shoulders back. Definitely a convert!
