No "dry needling" by uneducated and untrained individuals/PT:s, DC;s and so on...

If someone does not have the proper education, training in TCM, their needling is ineffective at least and potentially harmful. One has to understand much-much more than just technicalities. We, L.Ac.:s use prescriptions/combinations of points according to Eastern medicine diagnosis.
