OPPOSE dry needling for PTs!!

For obvious reasons both the acupuncturists and PTs are aware of. 

Dry needle is acupuncture.  No matter however you want to call it.  It is acupuncture.  

You will be practicing dry needling (acupuncture) without the acupuncture license.  Not fair for the current state licensed acupuncturists.
