Oppose PT learning Dry Needling

Physical Therapists should not learn Dry Needing because they do not have the right experience or education material. As a licensed Acupuncturist in the state of Florida, I had to pass 4 board examinations to become licensed, earn over 1,000 clinical hours of acupuncture experience in order to become an Acupuncturist, learn the correct needing depth for each part of the human body. More importantly, when to use needling or not depending on the situation.
