Patients are asking for dry needling…are you ready to meet the increasing market demand?

When your typical therapeutic tools and release techniques aren't doing the trick, dry needling provides quick relief of pain and movement impairments and will transform your practice.

This intensive 3-day course is the perfect blend of live education and hands-on labs that equip you to begin offering services the very next day. Led by the clinical experts at Master Dry Needling, you'll learn not only HOW to needle but also WHAT functional outcomes may be influenced by needling, which is WHY we needle.

  1. ✔  Gain confidence in needle palpation: recognize normal/abnormal tissue in different body types
  2. ✔  Flexible lab structure, allowing you to spend more time on the areas that matter most to your specific caseload
  3. ✔  Innovative needle insertion and whole-body mapping strategies for immediate results

You'll see results faster than with any other technique as you instantaneously decrease pain and muscle tension. Dry needling penetrates treatment zones and immediately helps the body heal itself so you can continue making progress in your active rehabilitation plan.

This training is so valuable, it will pay for itself as you add a cash-based revenue stream!
