We are welcoming Katie Farrell who joins the clinic as a full time associate physiotherapist as of today. In March and April Katie completed further training in medical acupuncture.
In this blog, Katie gives us an overview of what she learnt and and how these skills will benefit her clients.
Over to Katie...
Over the past two months, I spent two full weekends completing the British Medical Acupuncture Society’s Foundation Course here in Dublin. The course content was extremely useful and very interesting, and was taught by Dr Mike Cummings and Simon Coghlan, Practice Principal here at Mount Merrion Physiotherapy.
We discussed many topics around medical acupuncture, including safety, neurophysiological mechanisms, clinical aspects and how we can apply it into our own practice as healthcare professionals.
The course had both theoretical and practical elements, with lots of time for interactive discussions and questions throughout. There were 10 of us taking the course. This small number allowed for great learning opportunities, and time for one to one guidance and help when needed.
