Course description



Level One - 75% of the muscles in the Lumbar, Cervical and Extremities regions
Level Two – This will include the balance of the muscles and will specifically focus on the muscles considered to be of higher risk for complications.

Please note:  You are able to needle muscles taught, but will not be insured for the needling of muscles you have not been taught should a complication occur.

After completing Level One and Level Two, the practitioner should be able to:

  • Describe the anatomy of the involved muscles, including the action and innervations of these muscles;
  • Locate the trigger points in these muscles;
  • Come to a differential diagnosis;
  • Identify activating and perpetuating factors for each muscle;
  • Treat these trigger points using acupuncture Dry Needling;
  • Provide corrective action and advice to the patient; and
  • Prescribe home-based exercises to stretch and strengthen the involved muscles.
