This page describes the training course in modern medical acupuncture
(WMA—Western medical acupuncture), a.k.a. dry needling, which I run
for statutorily regulated health professionals such as doctors,
physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, and podiatrists. The course
is also suitable for health practitioners whose regulatory body is
overseen by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA), provided their
professional body accepts that acupuncture falls within the scope of
practice of their profession. At present this would include members of
the British Association of Sports and Rehabilitation Therapists and
members of the British Acupuncture Council.
The course is suitable for beginners and also for practitioners who have been using acupuncture for some time but would like to explore a different approach—one which demystifies acupuncture without losing any of its efficacy.
