Dry needle is acupuncture, should only be practiced by an acupuncturist

Other professional who want to get acupuncture effective pain managment should get proper acupuncture training before insetting a needle. Physical therapists and chiropractors should only keep practice in their own field, shouldn’t use needles to penetrate human’s skin under a fake name “dry needle”.
