Dry needling by Physical therapists

I have received extremely effective dry needling by several therapists at Innovative Therapy and Wellness where I have been seen for the past 14 years. They are well-trained and hold doctorates in their field and I trust them completely. To take this ability to heal from trained therapists is to make being needled for faster and more effective healing less available to those who need it as Accupuncturists are difficult to find. Please don’t lessen a patient’s ability to find healing needling.
