It is true what the American Medical Association (AMA) has clearly stated: "The practice of acupuncture and the practice of dry needling are indistinguishable." Dry needling is the renaming of acupuncture by non-acupuncturists in an attepmt to fool the public into thinking it is something different from what it is: The insertion of acupuncture needles into the body to promote a healing response.
