Had a fantastic time on the Foundation course for Acupuncture & Dry Needling. A very hands on approach as soon as you are into the face to face sessions which was good for me and how I learn best. Carl is a great teacher and creates a nice, fun atmosphere in the room throughout the course which is great especially if anyone is nervous to start off. 5* Would Recommend

Attended a foundation Acupuncture course and dry needling course on the 6-8 of may 2022. I really enjoyed it. Well taught and delivered in a way that inspired confidence. Carl made everyone feel at ease. Helped with the clinical reasoning and gave me some good directions to expand my future development /research. Also I'd like to mention lousie who gave some great admin support. I would definitely recommend them and will look forward to attending future courses with breeze academy. Thanks Dave

I recently attended the foundation acupuncture and dry needling course in Liverpool. I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the course. The two course lecturers, Carl and Nicki were very friendly, highly knowledgeable and made you feel very engaged with the content. I would highly recommend these guys if you are looking to enrol on an acupuncture course in the near future :)

Review from Lulu Williams (my laptop is broken...). I thought the course was seriously well worth every penny. Carl and Chelsea were great teachers and I felt comfortable asking any questions. They also made it fun :) I loved how practical the course was from start to finish. Having done the pre course online before I went gave me a good foundation of knowledge and then again the post course case studies were really useful to put the course into practice. I will start to use what I learn on the course immediately and feel inspired to further my knowledge and skills in this area.. because its so interesting! Thank you!

I recently completed the foundation course in acupuncture and dry needling. I cannot praise Carl any more and have recommended him to my friends and colleagues. The course is informative, fun and very well coordinated. I thoroughly enjoyed the online learning prior to the practical element. A wonderful course all round.

Lynn Pearce

Lynn Pearce

Lynn has worked continuously in the clinical field since qualifying as a physiotherapist in 1982. Gravitating towards out-patients, she added acupuncture to her tool box in 1989. Finding results went far beyond what could at that time be explained by western medical approaches and ideas, she undertook a two year Chinese Medicine based course leading to a Licentiate in Acupuncture and has sought to integrate Chinese Medical Principles in her practice and way of life. Finding they spoke a certain truth, it has enabled her to marry the more esoteric type of practice, with new and constantly developing western medical knowledge as to how acupuncture might have its effect on the human condition. Gaining a Certificate in Medical Education and consequently lecturing at Coventry University on the MSc course has enabled Lynn to broaden her scope of practice and to move away from treating the symptom more towards treating the person.

Nicola Môn

Hello, my name is Nicola Môn and I qualified as a physiotherapist from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2014. It was in my first job as a PT that I witnessed both acupuncture and Dry needling being used as a conjunct treatment in MSK private practice and sports rehab. Through mentoring / in-services I grew more intrigued about this topic and by 2015 I had sat my first course. My interest in the topic and especially in its role in sports injury and MSK rehabilitation kept developing.
