Acupuncture foundation course  



Physiotherapists who use acupuncture and dry needling offer more to their clients, ensuring that their practice is considered the go-to clinic for healthcare. Furthermore, acupuncture and dry needling are popular treatment choices for the general public, and they continue to be an important factor in deciding which healthcare provider to access. Clinicians who use acupuncture, do so as an alternative to invasive interventions and medication, and to allow exercise and manual therapy to take place where pain may impede its application.

Contemporary healthcare provision, spanning elite sport, persistent pain, Women’s and Men’s Health, oncology / palliative care, and mental health, integrates acupuncture and dry needling as an important co-contributor to symptom management and relief in a spectrum of conditions. Primarily used for both acute and persistent pain, needling for stress and anxiety, overactive bladder, hot flushes/flashes, nausea and addiction are also common practice. On completion of an Acuphys training course, Clinicians will feel confident that they can provide these services safely, confidently and effectively.
