Advanced Medical Acupuncture

14th & 15th September 2017

This Advanced OMT Training CPD course is designed to introduce participants to the use of Medical Acupuncture (Dry Needling) for the purpose of muscular pain relief. This course is not designed to treat pathological conditions as taught to TCM Acupuncturists.

OMT Advanced Acupuncture (Dry Needling) looks to build on the knowledge gained from OMT Medical Acupuncture course and other related dry needling and acupuncture courses you have completed. You will gain sound knowledge and skill to use all the techniques shown within your practice.

Electro Acupuncture
During day two, we will introduce you to Electro Acupuncture. We will introduce you to the equipment and show you best practise in the uses of electro acupuncture.
We will also go through the theory and then practical training in full electro acupuncture techniques for all the major joints of the body, from the stubborn shoulder to chronic back or knee pain.
Electro Acupuncture has been shown to be highly effective in the treatment of acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
You will be exposed to the latest needling techniques for areas that you treat in everyday practice and also gain high proficiency in the use of electro – acupuncture.
