If you're looking for a course to complement what you've already learned about Dry Needling, then the Advanced Dry Needling course is the right course for you. Here are the top reasons why practitioners join the Dry Needling Advanced course:
  • They want to increase their knowledge & skills on what they've learnt at the Dry Needling Introductory course.
  • They want the choice to complete all their Dry Needling training in one weekend (Intro & Advanced Bundle) or join the Advanced course at a later date (after consolidating their Introductory training).
  • They've completed the Introductory course, love the results and now want to learn more about treating every day conditions using Dry Needling.
  • They've completed another education providers Dry Needling course but they're not happy with the standard of safety or depth of content, so they've hesitated to use Dry Needling because they just don't feel confident.
  • They completed the CPD HC Dry Needling course a long time ago and not had the opportunity to use it but now they'd like to get started. They've lost confidence and want re-assurance that they're safe.
  • They've completed their dry needling training with another course provider and now they're looking for an alternative model that suit their treatment preferences and their patient demographic.
  • They're required to periodically update your Dry Needling qualifications and want to do this as easily as possible.
Very informative, I definitely have gained more confidence and knowledge in dry needling.
