Project Description

Level 2: Advanced Dry Needling Course (2 Days)

The Level 2 Advanced 2 day course builds upon the techniques taught in the Introductory course.

The course involves a combination of lectures and demonstrations, coupled with ample practical supervision to hone your dry needling skills.

Once you have successfully completed our GEMt Level 1 course, you may enter either of our Advanced courses – in any order!

New to the advanced GEMt course is the use of the Sonosite Titan Ultrasound System. The integration of imaging techniques into the course enables detailed viewing of anatomy and a greater ability to teach safe and effective needling techniques. Ultrasound is used to define muscle boundaries and bony landmarks and visualise a local twitch response in-situ.
