oppose dry needling by PT

First it's illegal to practice acupuncture with acupuncture needle without an acupuncture license.  Secondly it's unsafe to the public for PT to perform needling with seriously inadequate acupuncture training.  And it's a disrespect and unfair to all the acupuncturists spent years and thousands hours of training to earn their acupuncture licenses.
