The course is delivered through various formats including lecture, practical lab sessions, case histories, as well as small-group experiential learning and reflection exercises. We provide adequate supervision by ensuring an optimal instructor to student ratio for the practical labs.
For courses offered in Ontario, time will also be spent in the cadaver lab to help review anatomy relevant to the dry needling skills learned in the course as well as any vulnerable underlying vascular, neurological and organ structures. A course manual will be provided that includes both a theory section (outlining the background, physiological effects and relevant research related to dry needling) and a practical section that describes with specific detail each needle insertion that is learned on the course along with pertinent anatomical information and diagrams. You’ll also receive a starter dry needling kit to take home after the first weekend.
