Student Testimonials

Testimonial Quote

My experience with dry needling has been nothing but positive. Sue has a gift of teaching in a manner in which a somewhat intimidating topic comes to life. She is one of those teachers who truly cares about her students and the subject matter in which she teaches. She is a joy to be around and makes you feel at ease the moment you meet her.

About Our Dry Needling Courses

"What can a Dry Needling Course do for my practice?" Dry Needling is the insertion of fine filament needles in the body, specifically neuromuscular tissue. Research is still looking at how dry needling works in both acute and chronic situations. Traditional acupuncture is rooted in eastern philosophy while dry needling is rooted in western medicine. Simple muscle tightness, strains and sprains, an overworked body needing recovery, muscle activation, swelling reduction and pain modulation are all clinical examples for the use of dry needling. Our courses aim to empower practitioners – especially those who work with athletes – to provide the most efficient treatment to their patients.
