Coalition of Arizona Acupuncture Safety (CAAS) is a neutral umbrella group that embraces all 550 professional acupuncturist's who hold a license in this state.
We carry no agendas from any one group, association, school or individual. Our primary goal is to present a UNITED FRONT of acupuncturists in Arizona as a cohesive group, to clearly communicate to the Arizona Physical Therapists & their Board, as well as insurers, the public and legislators, that Dry Needling is ACUPUNCTURE and therefore already regulated in the State of Arizona. We will pursue whatever action is needed to ensure that unlicensed, untrained persons are not endangering the public safety by doing Acupuncture under the wording of "dry needling" or other similar names such as "Trigger Point Needling" or Intra "Muscular Needling". We encourage our beloved patients, other sympathetic health care providers, and all supporters of Licensed Acupuncturists to join with us in our cause to educate and protect the public's health.
