I am opposed to the introduction of this substandard version of Acupuncture known as "Dry Needling" based on the substandard training and risk to the consuming public. It has been described as such in the historic literature of acupuncture and Asian Medicine. I have seen it in practice in mixed clinic settings and it is a ploy to increase billing opportunities and not to provide optimal patient care.
