Medical Acupuncture and Dry Needling
We offer a 5 day programme comprising 2 modules -
Module 1 - Introduction to Dry Needling
Module 2 - Medical Acupuncture & Advanced Dry Needling
You may attend each module independently or both in the correct order. We offer a discount for booking both modules at the same time, although you may select available dates in different months.
You will be introduced to the use of dry needling for the purpose of muscular pain relief. The course consists of a varied blend of lectures, demonstrations, guided practical sessions and individual interaction with course tutors over two days for Module I and a further three days for Module II. There is a substantial amount of practical work gaining experience of the many aspects of dry needling. You will acquire sound knowledge and skill to use all the techniques shown within your practice.
The Medical Acupuncture & Dry Needling (MDN) course is a 5 day programme comprising two self-contained modules
MDN 1 introduces basic dry needling skills, while MDN 2 covers fundamental acupuncture points and more advanced aspects of dry needling, and enabling students to extend their skills in both aspects of needling. If you wish to book Module 2, you must have already attended our 2 Day Dry Needling or an equivalent course which will exempt you from attending Module 1.
