STOP against Acupuncture Law/dry needling is Acupuncture only for LAC?

So call "dry needling" is exactly insert the acupuncture needle into the skin and it belong to  Acupuncture. Therefore to practice dry needling need Acupuncture license. To obtain Acupuncture license usually need about 3 years, 3000 hours training and pass the NCCAOM or California Acupuncture Board exam first.
