Project Description

Essentials Level 2: For RMT’s and Myotherapists

The Essentials 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 Essentials Level 1 course, you may enter the Essentials Level 2 course

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.
