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.
Thanks so much for providing me with such great care this morning! About 30 minutes after I got to work, the headache lifted nearly completely and I was able to go about my day. I really appreciate all of your expertise and your willingness to go the extra mile to ensure that your treatment is maximally effective. It is unfortunately rare nowadays to find a health care practitioner as dedicated and knowledgeable as you, and I am so grateful to have found you.
