Western Medical Acupuncture Therapy

Dry needling is similar to acupuncture in that it uses needles to penetrate the skin. Typically, Dry Needling has beneficial effects on pain and healing and the primary reason for applying dry needling is to release muscle trigger points.

Western Medical Acupuncture has evolved as the evidence for the use of TCM acupuncture grows however, the differences in the way that the Western Medical world views the body in comparison to Eastern methods, makes it difficult for Western doctors to reconcile the two modalities.

Dry Needling and Western Medical Acupuncture are add-on training courses for Healthcare Practitioners who already have a qualification in anatomy and physiology. For example doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, sports therapists, dentists and midwives.
