Course Introduction

This seminar is designed to introduce the techniques of dry needling using acupuncture needles in the treatment of myofascial trigger points.

These techniques offer a safe and effective way to rapidly deactivate points using sub-dermal and intramuscular needling techniques. The course is highly practical and delegates are normally confident to needle their patients after the seminar.
