So why should you learn Trigger Point Dry Needling now?
That’s a great question. Over the last 10 years, more & more practitioners have wanted to learn Dry Needling Therapy and the number of Dry Needling Therapists is increasing every week.
Such is the popularity of this great treatment technique that many clinics are now insisting on practitioners becoming Dry Needling Therapist before they join their clinics.
Trigger Point Dry Needling is the skill that will transform you as a practitioner, your clinic, your patient list & your patient’s lives.
Your patients will be fascinated, impressed & incredibly receptive when they realize & then appreciate why you wanted to learn this new skill. Ultimately of course, the aim of learning any new skill is to help people, which is why we all do what we do. 
Many practitioners join the DN Introductory course having already completed their initial training with another education provider because they want to refresh their knowledge or increase their confidence using Dry Needling.
  • Sports teams are now asking for Dry Needling as a key skill to use on their players.
  • Newly graduated practitioners are becoming qualified in Dry Needling therapy to maximize their job opportunities.
  • Patients are now calling clinics and asking the question… Do you do Dry Needling?
By delaying your Dry Needling training, you’re missing out on potential revenue and life long patients who are looking for someone to help them. Every day you wait for the right time to start learning this new skill is another day lost in opportunity.
Very good experience. Course well organized, easy to learn.
Angelica (Physiotherapist)
Like many things I’ve learned in my professional life, my patients were the ones who first introduced me to Dry Needling.  
I came to love Dry Needling after completing a Masters Degree in Acupuncture. Completing this Degree really helped me understand much more about the background to needling and the differences between these two very unique disciplines.
Above all, the real gift of completing a highly intensive post grad course in Acupuncture was the early start I made in honing in on my needling & handling skills. These skills complemented the manual dexterity skills I have developed over the past 31 years of treating patients.
Very enjoyable & entertaining.
