Dry Needling Online Courses (ONLINE COURSE COMING SOON)
Dry Needling Insights for Clinical Practice 1, 2, & 3:
What is it? How does it work? Who can do it? What can it treat? How do I implement needling into my current practice model? How can dry needling improve my patients' health? How can needling help improve my health?
If you are wondering what dry needling is, how it works, how it could help you, or how to implement it into your current practice model, these classes are for you. You do not need to be a medical practitioner to glean useful information from these courses to safely, effectively, and dramatically improve your health. If you already needle and would like to learn more about it, like how to specifically target the autonomic nervous system (ANS), or simply hear a new perspective on treatment strategy, these classes are for you too. We created these courses to be accessible in podcast form, as well as typical online class form. You do not need to be at a computer and do not need to see the screen for the talks to make sense. However, there are voice over PowerPoints and videos that accompany each topic, which will add to your learning experience. We would like these courses to serve as an access point into the world of dry needling for medical practitioners and the general public alike, with the goal of improving mental and physical health. If you are looking to improve your own health, or improve the health of others, you will glean useful information from this online dry needling course series to help you achieve your goals.
We cover much of the latest evidence-informed needling research, both experimental and theoretical, with a focus on autonomic nervous system homeostasis. You will learn our unique needling methodology and how to help any impairment with dry needling. Autonomic nervous system homeostasis and how to achieve it with needling is covered in-depth. The gut-brain axis and the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, key players of the autonomic nervous system, are strongly and positively affected by thoughtful needling. You will learn why. Electrical needling is discussed and you will learn why it increases efficacy, pain relief and comfort of treatment.
You will learn the power of dry needling treatment for men’s and women’s pelvic health, including erectile dysfunction, incontinence, pain with sex, postpartum pain, general dysfunction, and more. You will also learn the wide-ranging neurophysiologic benefits of electrical auricular vagus nerve stimulation and how to use it to regulate the mind and body toward homeostasis. Dry needling’s awesome effect on mental health is also discussed.
Although needling is not allowed in every state, and it varies per profession, it is allowed in most. For PT’s, the only states where it is not legal, yet, is NY, CA, OR, WA & HI. For practitioners who practice in a state where needling is not allowed, this course remains beneficial as it allows you to become familiar with the technique and provides education concerning various pain pathways, mechanisms of action, other potential ways to reduce pain, regulate the autonomic nervous system, improve outcomes, and more. This includes being knowledgeable about different forms of treatment, which allows for effective interdisciplinary referrals and informed individual choice, to maximize health potential.
Remember, if you are not a medical person, but are interested in learning about this awesome treatment to improve your health, this class will provide you with the tools to do so.
Students have permanent access to all class materials and any updates we make in the future. Students also have permanent access to the instructor, Jason, following the course, for any questions.
