Advanced Dry Needling Dissection Course
Now Available!

Dr. Dommerholt dry needling and dissection

Registration Now Open for the Once-A-Year Dissection Course

Myopain Seminars is pleased to present a unique Advanced Dry Needling Dissection course at the Institute for Anatomical Research in Colorado Springs, CO. Course instructors will be Dr. Jan Dommerholt and Jim Pulciani from the Institute for Anatomical Research.

The course will combine an in-depth review of challenging dry needling techniques combined with detailed clinical anatomical and dissection studies presented in the context of dry needling. We will challenge common belief systems about anatomy, i.e., is it possible to differentiate the serratus posterior superior muscle and the rhomboid muscles, considering that Travell and Simons described distinctively different referred pain patterns?

Join us in August this year for this incredible opportunity to expand your knowledge and practice.

Three Easy Steps to Certification

Dry Needling Certification Process


Study with the Experts

The Dry Needling 1: Foundations I course is an excellent starting point for learning the fundamentals of dry needling therapy. With a focus on the safe and effective application of dry needling techniques, you will gain a solid understanding of myofascial trigger points, needling techniques, precautions, and how to apply these techniques in clinical practice.

Register for DN-1


Expanding Your Skillset

The Dry Needling 2: Foundations II course is an intermediate-level course that provides in-depth knowledge and hands-on training for dry needling techniques of the extremities, including the upper and lower body. By completing this course, you will expand upon the skills you acquired in the DN-1 course and better understand the application of dry needling for managing musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.

Register for DN-2


Achieving Clinical Proficiency

The Dry Needling 3: Advanced course is the final course in the series and the last step before becoming a Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist – Dry Needling (CMTPT/DN). This course offers an in-depth study of advanced dry needling techniques for hand muscles, several lower extremity and foot muscles, the craniofacial and craniomandibular muscles, and more. The DN-3 course allows you to achieve the highest level of clinical proficiency in managing patients with myofascial pain.
