Why Choose the Dry Needling Institute?

At the Dry Needling Institute we understand and respect the years of education you’ve invested in your training. At the Dry Needling Institute we do not teach you what you have already learned and paid for in your education but give you the additional knowledge and tools necessary to provide Dry Needling services safely and effectively.

Two Training Options

At the Dry Needling Institute we have developed two training options:  a 12 hour, two day dry needling certification program, and an 18 hour, three day dry needling certification class.

Both the 12 hour and 18 hour programs will give you all the training necessary to deliver dry needling services safely and effectively in your practice. These courses are built upon the training you have already received in your education as a healthcare professional.

Both courses are kept small to ensure competency.
