Wonderful course! I’m afraid of needles and of watching needles go into the skin. David and Nick were great in showing how safe needling can be and ways to make the process as pain-free as possible. I left the course over my fear of using needles and excited to use this treatment on my patients.
Incredible insight into clinical information that will be wonderful for all parts of my practice! I believe I now have the knowledge to educate to my referral sources.
Frank is exceptional at creating relevance with patient care and diagnosis. There is an amazing variety of recent resources cited. What I liked most was the good mix of didactic, lab and advanced explanations of the treatments.
Excellent, thank you! Frank, glad you are the one leading the way to the 4th generation of dry needling.
Frank did a great job at explaining the material so that everyone could grasp it. He is brilliant when it comes to function and anatomy, but he relays it in a way that makes sense clinically. He seems to be the type of person that can relate to anyone. I have absolutely enjoyed this class and look forward to taking future ones as they develop the research and materials. Thanks!

I am amazed at how to the point, precise and well done the course was. I truly hope you know how much I appreciate your patience. I’m so excited to have safely and confidently helped a few patients so far. Thank you.
Being a CMP, (Certified Mulligan Practitioner) I have good understanding of joint mechanics and how to clear joints. The dry needling fits in perfectly to address soft-tissue/nerve irritation that comes along with it. The puzzle pieces all fit so well together I feel as though I have a more complete approach to treating my orthopedic patients.
Frank’s delivery of the material was very practical, thought provoking and encouraging to me as a clinician. I’m excited to continue building on what I’ve learned and will encourage other clinicians to consider adding this tool to their kitbag. Thanks Dr. G, you’re the best!
I found this course to be excellent. Course content based on anatomy, physiology and neurophysiology. Content relevant and immediately useful in the clinic for my clients. Personally, even though I was not being “treated” I receive significant reduction of bilateral hip and knee pain and was no longer limping when I walked! I will definitely be using this treatment to improve my clients!
I have taking numerous classes on a multitude of therapeutic techniques, but the one intervention that stands above all the rest are the techniques that I learn at from Dr Ma’s courses. Nothing has been more effective and more complementary to other interventions than integrative dry needling has been
I have had amazing success after foundational course. After Advanced course I have developed a sense of pride in what I do and can do, I’ll promote the use of DN in our profession and community. I can not thank you enough for a knowledge and compassion you share
The Advanced course gave me more confidence in needling delicate/ complicated areas of the neck and more confidence in my X-ray vision of important major nerve pathways. It also helped me to tailor my needling approach differently for athletes versus the general population.
Dry Needling has completely changed the way I look at the human body. It helps my family, my patients and my friends. Unbelievable success.
I have been a manual therapist for over 30 years. Dry needling has change the way I evaluate and approach problems. I have faster and better results than before even with the most difficult patients. My patients love results and it is extremely satisfying professionally
This course changed the way I treat very difficult patients, the ones with chronic pain who almost give up. I get patients who are fearful of needling after painful trigger point dry needling but after one treatment using Dr. Ma’s technique can’t get enough! The new information on microcirculation will change your practice and the way we understand pain/inflammation forever”
What I learned at the Advanced course brought joy back into treating patients. Many of them have been through years of treatment with no real results, it is different now. So exiting to see they getting better and better.
Course instructor not only answering each and every question, but truly going beyond simple answer to insure complete understanding. IDN changed my practice in very positive way, I especially love the fact that all teaching is positive – never a negative thing spoken about any other courses. This is profound professionalism!
The Advanced Integrative Dry Needling course has helped me visualize the body in 3-D ,has drastically changed how I evaluate and treat musculoskeletal injuries. In Short – this course revolutionized my practice and made me exited about treating patients
Excellent course. Frank does an excellent job relating the information on everyone’s level, I would recommend this course to everyone interested in dry needling
Frank is an excellent speaker; I was very excited about dry needling for the quick results. We learned a lot in three days. Thank you Frank!
