Because we are sure the course content quality and clinical insights you receive, guarantee you exceptional value for your money. P.S. No one in 16 years has ever asked for a refund from us. Ever!

LIFETIME SUPPORT. Why go through the same pitfalls? Why reinvent the wheel? Along the way you learn in a supportive environment, combining theory practical, case studies and clinical reasoning. Even when not at a course and you have access to the course director for answers, post questions on the Members forum, receive fortnightly ezines packed with clinical information and have access to a large online Resources Library with webinars, documents and research papers. Why? Learning shouldn’t be threatening! We want your learning to be clinically relevant and fun. We offer the only progressive, COMPLETE dry needling program with LIFETIME support.

EXPERTISE. You will benefit from a presenter who has been a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist (member of the Australian College of Physiotherapists) with 30+ years fulltime clinical experience, teaching dry needling since 1996 and involved in ongoing research at Curtin University. You will obtain practical insights that cross the spectrum of research into clinical practice and can be applied immediately in your clinic.

BONUS LEARNING TOOLS. Most people don’t recall everything. For this reason, you receive both the Level 1 and Level 2 Dry Needling course DVD (Value $100) of all the techniques demonstrated during that course. Isn’t that a great resource?  In addition to your course DVD, you receive a box of 100 premium needles and a BONUS study pack (Value $60) that contains several other essential tools to enhance your learning.

COMPLETE LEARNING MATERIALS. From the moment you enrol, you are learning. You receive a bronze membership, access to online anatomy quizzes and online articles. All to maximise your on the day learning. Wet Laboratory Anatomy workshops are available, to enable important review of anatomy ‘in the flesh’. No competitor provides access to anatomy workshops with a dry needling emphasis. All pre-reading and course manual is provided online. You can sit back, take notes, absorb information and review references later. It all makes your learning easy and for your PD portfolio we provide individualised Course Completion Certificates (Value $35). No extra charge.

TIME CREATION. I find when using dry needling to treat clients, it creates 3-4 EXTRA minutes every client if I am treating pain, trigger points or muscle spasm. Over a day of 15-20 clients, this is an extra hour, which I choose to spend providing more comprehensive client education and home exercise development. In this way, dry needling improves client outcomes through short-term pain relief and long-term functional improvements.
