I am AGAINST Dry needle by PT without NCCAOM certificateā€

Dear officer,


I am a student of acupuncture program.

I Haved been studied for 4 years, and need one more year to complete the program. I make huge effort to continue study, because Acupuncture can help regulate our human body, mental,and spirit. It is beneficial to everyone in optimize health status. 

I am concerning about this “dry needle “will put the patients on risk.I hope  patient only can be needled by NCCAOM certificates provides.

Thank you.
