    The theory aspect was very user friendly & the practical day with Wayne was amazing; his depth of knowledge is incredible.

    I have applied the techniques with patients on my first day back with stunning results.

    Thank you Wayne & CPD Health Courses". Anton: RMT Adelaide...more

    CPD Health Courses offers the quickest, easiest and most inexpensive way to learn Dry Needling therapy.

    This Dry needling course has been specially created remedial massage therapits with little or no previous dry needling experience.

    We focus on correct needling technique with LOTS of needling practice to low risk areas & cover the treatment of many muscles and areas of pain. 

    One of the key skills you’ll learn on the practical course is becoming highly effective at finding trigger points in muscle fibres.

    Practice the correct way to hold the guide tube, manipulate the needle & experience what the needle feels like when it’s in the right location at the right depth and angle, to make you feel confident, safe & effective.

    The insertion of a needle is generally painless when carried out correctly; you don't need to vigorously manipulate an acupuncture needle to get great results!

    Having used Dry Needling for over 12 years & it never fails to amaze me how well patients respond to this therapy. It’s like magic.

    Save your hands- Use Dry Needling therapy!

    Once you've completed your Dry Needling course you’ll have a choice; use deep tissue massage that's painful for your patient & hard work on your hands; or place 3 acupuncture needles into the belly of the muscle for 5-7 minutes.

    Then remove the needles & check the change in muscle tone - you’ll be amazed.
    What's more, your patients will love it too!
