This information is provided to you by Georgia state licensed acupuncturists for the sole purpose of insuring the public health and safety of Georgia citizens. We are not against physical therapists or chiropractors performing dry needling acupuncture. We consider physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists and physicians to all be on the same team each bringing a unique prospective and training to help you get the most from your health. There are physical therapists and chiropractors who are also qualified licensed acupuncturists. There are qualified physicians that practice dry needling acupuncture too. If different professionals want to incorporate tools from other medical disciplines not traditionally part of their own medical training then we believe it’s imperative for your health that they meet the same training requirements.
