This AACP accredited acupuncture foundation course provides delegates with a the most comprehensive training in western medical acupuncture, dry needling and electro acupuncture available in a single course. The theory aspect is underpinned in current research evidence and the practical portion of the course is grounded within anatomy and physiology.
The level of knowledge, skill and understanding attained during the course will allow delegates to practice acupuncture and dry needling in a safe, appropriate, and effective manner within the clinical setting after the 3rd day of the course.
The course fee is inclusive of first year’s membership to the AACP (worth £82.50).
The course is a mix of theory and practical spread over 6 days. Topics covered include acupuncture analgesia, safe practice, research and the evidence base, classical acupuncture points, myofascial trigger points, electro-acupuncture and auricular acupuncture.
The course tutor Jonathan Hobbs (AACP Chairman & Fellow of the Higher Education Academy) is a former principal of a school of physiotherapy and tutor to physios within Team GB, Premiership football, MoD, NHS, NFL and the US Navy SEALs.

Jon Hobbs is an excellent speaker, clear, concise, easy to listen to and delivered an amazing amount of information in a short time. His practical sessions were excellent, very thorough and not intimidating with adequate time to individually check our needling techniques and accuracy. Having courses run by lecturers who are also accomplished physiotherapists and clinicians currently treating patients makes such a difference!
I would like to thank Jon Hobbs for his enthusiastic approach to acupuncture on the foundation level course. He has given me the knowledge and confidence to expand my clinical practice.
