Top 5 reasons why therapists choose CPD Health Courses for their Dry Needling training
  1. We have a 100% Safety Record after training more than 5000 Manual Therapists around the world.
  2. Presenter Dr Wayne Mahmoud is a highly experienced Osteopath and has a Master’s degree in Acupuncture. He is a Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist (CMTPT), having completed a 120-hour Dry Needling Training Program by Myopain Seminars (USA). In addition, he has more than 36 years & 10,000 hours of clinical and teaching experience, having taught at the British School of Osteopathy, RMIT University & Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia.

    Dr Mahmoud has presented Dry Needling courses in the UK, Kuwait, Egypt, Dubai, India, Australia and New Zealand. He was invited to present at the Tenth World Congress on Myofascial Pain Syndrome and Fibromyalgia Syndrome, Bangalore, India, in 2017.
  3. Our Dry Needling courses teach the high caution needling areas such as Upper Trapezius, using a 1:1 Presenter to Student ratio. This teaching method provides therapists with the confidence they need to apply the needling techniques safely and effectively.
  4. We use HD quality videos recorded in a studio to demonstrate the Dry Needling techniques, so all practitioners have an equal opportunity to see the techniques on a large screen. No one is asked to be a model for demonstration purposes; this reduces participant fatigue at this high contact practical course. You’ll have access to the technique videos used at the practical course as soon as you enrol, making sure that you’re prepared and high in confidence.
  5. Practitioners are offered access to our Dry Needling Video Training Site (DN VTS). You can choose from over 350 video clips as part of a regularly updated online content library. The site allows practitioners to ask Dr Wayne Mahmoud any questions about needling techniques, safety practices, patient presentations and more.
