Rationale and Goal Statement
For physiotherapists trained in Dry Needling, the career path is currently limited to training based around conditions or increasing difficult areas to needle. This course bridges a gap between DN and acupuncture and may serve as a conduit to train further in acupuncture.

What is the overall aim of the course/activity?
To take the current level of under standing and skill of what DN can do to the next level beyond just pain modulation.
Target Audience
Physiotherapists who are keen to extend their needling skills and may in future consider training further in some form of acupuncture.
