3  Ways our course is different and ….

the 6 Reasons why Physical Therapists and Chiropractors should explore Dr Ma’s work

Our purpose here in pointing up why Dr Ma’s dry needling  courses are different that we want to assist physical therapists  and chiropractors in choosing a dry needling course that will satisfy they very own professional needs and expectations.

Let’s start with 3 very important ways….


  • Integrative Dry Needling, ™ is a contemporary dry needling therapy  based on the works of Dr Janet Travell (1982, 1992), Dr Chan Gunn (1978), clinical evidence, evidence-based research and Dr Ma’s own 40+ years of clinical and research experience and neuroscience training.
  • We teach needling, not palpation.We teach Dry Needling as an independent modality that is easily adjusted and incorporated into physical therapists and chiropractors clinical practice, according to the professional experience and needs of attendees and patients.

In contrast:

Many course providers heavily concentrate on teaching palpation during dry needling courses… dry needling is usually presented within the context of one of the popular treatment models”.-  Luce Richards, researcher, Journal of Osteopathy, 2009


Many clinical  treatment procedures and virtually painless needling techniques are developed by Dr Ma and can be learn only at his course.

We also present and scientifically explain the CORE of contemporary dry needling modality:

  • physiological mechanisms of needling,
  • mechanisms of trigger point formation,
  • and the mechanisms of formation of the “twitching response”.

Efficacy of physical therapists and chiropractors integration of dry needling into clinical practice depends on deep understanding and practical implementation of these intertwined physiological mechanisms.



Dr Yun-tao Ma is the only teacher two has well rounded experience of being  world known clinician, researcher, writer, teacher
