Are You Ready To Take Your Dry Needling To The Next Level? Do You Want To Deliver Results?

neural dry needling

Dear Practitioner,


How often have you heard a patient say, "Yeah, I tried dry needling but it didn't work."?


I for one have heard that statement far too often...


My dry needling journey started in mid-2008. It was a 6-day course focused on trigger point dry needling. Over those 6 days, we palpated and needled every trigger point we could find. It was intense, to say the least.


The instructor was extremely knowledgable. He was a remedial massage therapist who went on to complete a degree in Acupuncture. A skillful teacher who was able to deliver his material in a way that we could understand and implement. I still have a world of respect for him.


The problem was, once I left the workshop, I had trouble applying what I had learned in a clinical environment. Yes, I knew how to palpate for trigger points. Yes, I knew the referral patterns. And yes, I knew how to safely insert a needle. Yet, I found it all hit and miss.


What I came to discover is trigger point dry needling is really a symptomatic approach to treatment. In order to get the best results possible for the patient, you must take a holistic approach.


At the time I was also working in elite sport and looking at ways dry needling could facilitate the healing and recovery of various sports injuries. After months of searching, I found a mentor in Dr. Yun-Tao Ma, a 40 year veteran in acupuncture and a Ph.D. in Neuroscience.


As he was based in the United States, I would send him photos of injuries and how I was needling them. He would send me feedback and suggestions. We developed a close relationship and ultimately I was asked to write the foreward to his book titled "Biomedical Acupuncture for Sports and Trauma Rehabilitation".


Over the years that followed, I incorporated the protocols I had learned from Yun-Tao Ma, with various soft tissue techniques to develop a highly effective treatment approach to chronic pain and injury. These techniques were successfully used on acute injuries, assisting the athletes to return to competition in a safe and timely manner. They were also used to assist in the recovery of long term injuries as well as reducing the effects of overtraining.


On leaving elite sport I entered into private practice where I quickly gained a reputation as someone who got results in the natural management of pain and injury. So much so I had sports physiotherapists, general practitioners, and a pain specialist physician referring their patients to me.


I went on to teach my unique treatment protocols to a large number of students at Massage Schools of Queensland before retiring in 2019. 


So, why am I telling you all this? Well, since retiring I've received numerous requests to teach my clinical dry needling techniques. They are an extremely effective and much-needed addition to the services provided by manual therapists including remedial massage therapists, physiotherapists, chiropractors, and osteopaths. But, there's a catch...


I am only making my training available to practitioners who already hold a dry needling qualification and are covered for dry needling under their insurance.


If you qualify then I have a special invitation for you. I'm creating two new courses and looking for a small number of students to attend the live, face-to-face workshops on the Gold Coast. Both workshops will be 3 days in duration.
