Acupuncture is part of a 3,000 year-old system of medicine that includes herbology and acupressure. The placement of sterile, tiny pins on a specific zone on the skin releases the body’s own chemical healers, stimulating circulation and relaxing tense muscles. Acupuncture also helps relieve anxiety, stress and digestive issues, assists with weight loss and is used to stop smoking, among other uses.

The difference between acupuncture pins and syringes is this: When seen under a microscope, acupuncture pins are rounded at the end, and therefore part the flesh rather than pierce it. This is why there’s no blood when the pins come out.
Syringes are, when seen under a microscope, extremely sharp. They actually pierce the flesh, and the trauma to the body can lead to bleeding.
For this reason most people prefer to go to licensed acupuncturists when their MD suggests sending them for dry needling.
We hope this helps explain the difference between dry needling done by an acupuncturist, and that done by a physical therapist.
