ICE Dry Needling
This is not your “hunt and peck” DN series. This dry needling certification is completely reimagined, comprehensive, and contemporary. Get ready to leverage 6 channel e-stim protocols that match perfectly with the intention of your treatment: pain relief, neuromuscular facilitation, recovery, and more. This certification STARTS with mastering the basics – relevant anatomy and specific muscle needling; but then moves into case-based protocols to ensure you know the “who, when, and why”, not just the psychomotor skill. At completion of this certification you will be able to identify patient presentations that pair with specific needle placement and e-stim setting protocols to maximize clinical outcomes.

What Others Are Saying
I highly recommend Dry Needling courses with the ICE team. They are all do a great job of combining evidence based research with clinical experience to present a well rounded view point of dry needling. I will be taking as many ICE courses as I can in the future!
Dry needling was already a major strategy to improve our athletes’ recovery, performance, and tissue health. After taking this ICE course, I believe we will be able to enhance those strategies even further for the benefit of our athletes.
I recently had the privilege of attending the lower quarter dry needling course, and I can’t express how transformative the experience was. The course was expertly structured, providing a seamless blend of theoretical knowledge and practical hands-on application. The instructors were not only highly skilled but also incredibly personable, fostering a comfortable learning environment that encouraged active participation and questions. Through their guidance, I gained a deep understanding of the lower quarter musculature and trigger points, and I was amazed by the immediate positive impact dry needling had on addressing pain and dysfunction. This course has not only elevated my clinical skills but also instilled a newfound confidence in providing effective treatment options for my patients. I wholeheartedly recommend this course to any healthcare professional looking to enhance their practice and make a real difference in patient care.
One of the quotes shared at the beginning of the class was powerful. Something to the effect of ‘DN has been around for 40yrs, its time to start treating like it.’ What followed for the next two days was a dedicated effort to needling with a level of clinical reasoning and specificity that I did not know existed. I am glad I spent the time and money to attend this course, and will be recommending it to all of my colleagues.

Who can attend this class?
Only individuals with an active healthcare license who have the authority to perform dry needling granted by their state’s scope of practice can attend this course. In general, this limits dry needling to physical therapists, occupational therapists, physicians, chiropractors, and athletic trainers. You are ultimately responsible for knowing the laws that apply to you based on the state that you practice in.
Do I have to be needled?
In order to receive our dry needling certification, it is required that you receive dry needling as it is important to understand the experience in order to reassure and educate patients. Additionally, having dry needling performed on you gives invaluable insight on how slight technique alterations can significantly affect the client experience.
I’m pregnant, can I still attend?
Yes! If for medical reasons you are unable to receive needles you’ll need to bring another participant for you to practice with throughout the weekend.
Should I choose the 2 or 3 day course?
Often clinicians choose the most cost effective option that meets their state’s requirements to allow them to legally perform dry needling. The courses are identical in philosophy, the 3 day course simply offers additional muscular targets, more repetitions with existing protocols, and several bonus case studies to work on clinical reasoning through the lens of dry needling.
Does my state require two or three day courses?
