No license no practice acupuncture/dry needle

Dry needle is acupuncture, people want to practice acupuncture/dry needle who must complete 2000-3000 hours of systematic and rigorous study and clinical training, and pass the acupuncture license exam.  Otherwise it will endanger the safety of the patient.
