Physiotherapists are the main profession that offers acupuncture as part of their standard practice. To get the most from acupuncture, physiotherapists will integrate it into their full care package to enhance and complement other interventions.

Physiotherapists can use acupuncture to either create a window of opportunity, or as an ongoing approach to ease chronic conditions. With a window of opportunity approach, physiotherapists use acupuncture to allow other interventions to take place, i.e. pain is preventing a patient from exercising, therefore they will use acupuncture to relieve that pain and allow exercise. With chronic conditions, physiotherapists consider acupuncture’s impact on threat perception, as well as sustained physiological influences that ultimately lead to symptom reduction.

Typically, acupuncture courses for physiotherapists take around one month. The online components of our courses can be completed in your own time, at your own pace. Once the in-person workshop has been attended, our acupuncture courses can be completed as quick or slow as you choose.

Yes, physiotherapists are able to study any of our acupuncture and dry needling courses.
