What is the difference between Dry Needling and Acupuncture?
While the tool is the same, the mastery is different.
Dry needling is the modern terminology allowing the use of acupuncture needles by other medical professionals. They receive certification with approximately 300 hours of training in using acupuncture needles. Acupuncture needles, or pins, can be applied by other professions as an adjunct to their main modality and by the theory of their education. They are an extra tool, like a paintbrush in the hands of a novice.
Acupuncture uses the same needles, or pins, as dry needling. However Acupuncture is one of the three major tool of Chinese Medicine. It is the paintbrush in the hands of an artist. Licensed Acupuncturists have undergone a 3-4 year Master’s Degree, studying the application of Chinese Medicine, as well as dedicating thousands of hours of training in application via their internship. The diagnostic methods and diverse applications of acupuncture are based on Chinese Medical theories. Acupuncture is the adjusting of a patients’ whole — mind, body, and spirit. Chinese Medicine incorporates the physical lens, internal medicine and functions, and emotional well-being.
