On September 2, 2015 the NC Acupuncture Licensing Board filed a lawsuit to protect the public from the unlicensed practice of acupuncture by physical therapists offering “dry needling.” The complaint against the NC Board of Physical Therapy Examiners seeks judicial confirmation that the practice commonly know as “dry needling” is acupuncture.

The NC Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine supports this action to protect the public. In order to educate the public with the truth about the lack of physical therapy education and supervised training to “dry needle” we need your HELP. Please donate to our advocacy fund to assist in this important cause.

为了防止无针灸执照的理疗师借用所谓“干针”名义提供针灸服务, 2015年9月2号, 北卡针灸执照委员会对其提出了法律诉讼以保护公众利益。本诉讼是针对日前北卡理疗协会审查机构的一项提议,他们正在为所谓的“干针”即为针灸这项说法寻求法律依据。这项诉讼同样得到了北卡针灸协会的支持。

普通的理疗师通常缺乏针灸的专业知识及相关临床培训。 为了让公众了解理疗师从事“干针”的潜在危险性,我们需要你的帮助。希望您能给我们的基金捐款,以协助这一重要宣传。
