Dry Needle is from Acupuncture

The Dry Needle is part of Acupuncture! The Chinese people have been practicing the trigger points ever since Dr. Sun Simiao invented it in 652 AD. This long history of acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Western Medicine just uses its own language and interpretation to change the content of Acupuncture into the Dry Needle.  Acupuncturists should make a Copyright to protect themselves to prevent this type of infringement and clear up patients’ confusions!
