"Consider a course of up to 10 sessions of acupuncture over 5-8 weeks for the prophylactic treatment of chronic tension-type headache." (NICE 2012)
This is a theoretical and practical course designed in two parts:
Exploring the use of Trigger Point acupuncture to reduce pain and restore function in a myofascial presentation of tension-type headache (TTH). Practical needling and the development of clinical protocols will be used to achieve effective management of tension headache with a myofascial presentation. There will be a review of recent research advances in the field of neural inhibitory mechanisms, myofascial pain physiology and acupuncture research, incorporating the work of Gerwin (1997) and Travell and Simons (1992) and exploring physiological mechanisms of dorsal horn and descending acupuncture inhibitory mechanisms.
Part II explores the management of migraine with traditional Chinese acupuncture (TCA) within a Western pain management model addressing systemic, hormonal and stress-induced migraine. The course will also explore the use of acupuncture for systemic balance of homeostasis in the management of more complex migraine presentation (Ying et al 2009; Wang et al 2011)

In this 1-day workshop Nick will show you why rehabilitation exercise prescription principles from the 1940’s are no longer acceptable. Rehabilitation exercise selection and prescription are simple concepts that we make more complex than necessary. Nick will show you simple evidence based principles that will allow you to produce effective rehabilitation programmes to meet your client’s needs. The concepts can be easily be incorporated into your practice, building upon what you already do well whilst challenging your existing ideas. Nick will show how expanding your ability to design and implement effective exercise prescriptions can improve compliance and rehabilitation outcomes. Drawing on experience, practical examples based on numerous case studies will offer practice based evidence to consolidate learning during the classroom sessions.
Topics covered during the workshop will include:
