Dry Needling Courses for Osteopaths
The Precise Points Dry Needling Course proudly welcomes all Osteopaths!
This Dry Needling Course has been teaching Osteopaths for the past 8 years. As a fellow Osteopath I have used my anatomical and structural knowledge to create a course that can be used in conjunction with your skills as an Osteopath.
Whether you are structural or use indirect techniques, this Dry Needling Course will give you the confidence to apply a new technique that will compliment the way you are treating.
This Dry Needling Course will give you over 120 online videos to access prior to the course, and thereafter. In addition, by having become familiar with the content, when attending the practical component, your learning experience will be enhanced.
Dry Needling Courses for Osteopaths FAQs
Dry Needling is currently covered under the scope of practice for Osteopaths. To be able to use Dry Needling, an Osteopath must complete a minimum of 16 hours on a Dry Needling Course.
The Precise Points Dry Needling Courses for osteopaths, L1 and L2, is a combined 26.3 hours.
Our Dry Needling Courses for Osteopaths include 16.8 hours for L1, 9.5 hours for L2, for a total of 26.3 hours CPD.
This is not uncommon – many people comment how they are comfortable giving needles but not receiving them!
The first and foremost thing with Dry Needling is consent – if you do not give consent then Dry Needling cannot proceed.
The course has been designed to have a partner.
I encourage all participants to treat their partner, as they would like to be treated themselves.
Most participants, once the initial contact has been completed, begin to actually enjoy needling – as will your patients!
Dry Needling does not have to be painful. It is important to ensure that your client is comfortable and informed in the type of treatment you are going administer. If your patient is prepared for how you insert and apply the needles, and you are sensitive to how your patient is receiving the needles, together you will be able to create a positive effect where you will be able to use needling effectively.
However I want to ensure that you, the participant, is able to do perform all techniques so that you will be able to treat a variety of people safely and effectively.
From our Dry Needling Courses for Osteopaths, you can expect to receive a lot of material, a lot of attention, a lot of specificity in relation to your palpation, lots of anatomical knowledge or revision, skills that you will be able to use on Monday, skills that compliment how you already treat. It makes sense.

There is only one teacher. Putting a needle into the skin, with a little practice is easy once done a couple of times. However understanding why something is painful, how to apply the needle if someone is resisting, applying different techniques, these are all things that have come with experience.
I am a micromanager and your learning experience is very important to me. I have chosen not to ask any people to teach with me because I want to make sure that you being taught by someone that has over 18 years experience needling.
It is very important to me that you leave the course with every bit of my knowledge and skill given to you by me – not via a third party.
Due to the fact that I am the only teacher my courses are always small.
If you want a course with 5 assistants (who may have had 2-3 years of Dry Needling experience), and 30 people in the room, then this course is not for you.
If you want a course where the class is super small and intimate, where the teacher (me) treats every day using Dry Needling and will give real life scenarios, where the teacher will be honest and will give you individual attention, and a teacher who will make sure that you leave confident about what you have learnt on the course, then this course will appeal to you.
I teach in an intimate setting where I can know everyone, understand each persons technique and then give them individual attention, guidance and critique to ensure that on Monday you will confidently be able to treat the first person that presents with a hamstring strain, or levator scapulae tightness (of course these will be found in your diagnosis) or all of the other most common causes of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction that we will cover in this Dry Needling Course.
I am very proud of the Precise Points Dry Needling course, and my teaching. When someone attends my course, they trust me to teach them to be confident and skillful, and I want to make sure that anyone and everyone who attends my Dry Needling course has the best learning experience they can have.
