"I completed the Online Animal Dry Needling course in May 2020. I found Tom particularly fantastic to work with, very clear in instruction and quick with communication when I had questions. The videos are very well done, with clear descriptions about how to perform different techniques and troubleshooting problems. There are comprehensive notes to refer to when practising the techniques learned int he videos. I enjoyed the course and look forward to starting dry needle therapy on my patients. Thank you Tom for developing this course." - Dr Stefanie McMahon BSc BVMS GDipEd(Tertiary)

I really enjoyed the Animal Dry Needling course. For me, it was a great balance between written theory, video tutorials and online face to face learning and assessments. Tom is highly knowledgeable in his delivery and passion for helping treat animals in both dry needling and acupuncture and is very willing to help and support learning as much as possible. He is easily approachable, available to assist and responds quickly to answer any questions or queries. I would definitely recommend the Animal Dry Needling course to anyone who is interested in learning these skills.
