Frequently asked questions

Occupational Therapists can use acupuncture and dry needling alongside their day to day practice, to compliment their usual interventions.

Acupuncture has benefits to pain, function and wellbeing, and can therefore be indicated across a broad range of populations. Clients who struggle to tolerate movement because of pain, can receive acupuncture before, during, or after an intervention, which not only helps the individual complete rehab more effectively, but it can also improve engagement with therapy. Furthermore, the wellbeing effects of acupuncture can help to reduce stress and anxiety, allowing for a whole-person approach to occupational therapy.

Dry needling is primarily used to help with pain and function of the musculoskeletal system, and is often used in conjunction with acupuncture to aid other therapies.

OT’s are able to train with Breeze Academy, who have over 12 years’ experience teaching acupuncture to HCPC registered healthcare professionals. Our delegates, on completion of the course, are able to use their acupuncture and dry needling skills in both the NHS and private sector safely, confidently and effectively.
