Learn the basics of musculoskeletal needling and myofascial cupping that will have you armed with the technique, confidence and know how to immediately incorporate these amazingly effective modalities into your treatment repertoire!

COURSE OUTLINE

There is pre-course reading of approximately 3 hours to allow for a more time getting you as proficient in needling, cupping, and electrotherapy as soon as possible, rather than sit through PowerPoint presentations.

For the dry needling component, topics covered are safe needling practice, different types of points, point location, needling technique and application, indications and contraindications of needling treatment.

The myofascial cupping component consists of introduction to the theory, procedure, application, indications and contraindications of cupping treatment.

The course material is delivered by a 78 page manual and accompanied with lectures, demonstrations and student handouts. There will be a maximum of 15 participants during hands-on practical sessions.

There will be adequate time for Q and A during the lectures, practical sessions and at the end of both days.

• Identify and select a variety of point locations

COURSE FASCILITATOR - Dr Jon Marshall
B.App Sci (Comp Med), M.Osteo, M.App Sci (Acupuncture)
Founder / Course Tutor

Dr Jon Marshall’s education in pain, healing and movement started at age 10 when his study of the Japanese martial art of Aikido began. His passion for Aikido took him to Japan, where he lived for seven years, and was ultimately the catalyst that guided Dr Jon Marshall to study Osteopathy and Acupuncture.

The strong connection between martial arts and healing in Asia led Jon to complete a Diploma in Acupuncture during his time in Japan. His teacher was also very skilful in manipulation which initiated Jon’s interest in Osteopathy.
Dr Jon Marshall graduated from RMIT university with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Complementary Medicine-Osteopathy), followed by a Master’s degree in Osteopathy.

In 2011, he was appointed the Osteopath for the Australian Olympic Taekwondo Team and travelled to Azerberjian for the Olympic Qualification Tournament in July 2011, New Caledonia in September 2011, and Egypt for the World Junior Championships in 2012. More recently, Jon has travelled with the team to Turkey for the Olympic Qualification Tournament leading up to the Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro in 2016.

His continuing interest in Chinese Medicine saw Jon enrol in a Master of Applied Science (Acupuncture), which he completed in November 2011. He is among only a handful of Osteopaths that are also formally qualified Acupuncturists.

He uses a wide range of Osteopathic techniques as well as Acupuncture, Diet Therapy, Cupping and Traditional Chinese Manipulative Technique (Tuina) to tailor effective treatments for his patients.

In addition to treating in the Rialto Melbourne CBD, Clifton Hill and Fitzroy clinics, he has lectured in both the Chinese Medicine and the Osteopathy departments at RMIT University in Melbourne, and the International College of Osteopathy in Tokyo, Japan.

He founded Manual Medicine Australasia in 2012 in response to increasing demand for reputable high quality CPD courses amongst manual medicine practitioners. Dr Jon Marshall now teaches Dry Needling, Cupping, Acupuncture and Osteopathic Techniques throughout Australia, Southeast Asia and Japan, expanding the knowledge and treatment repertoire of Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Physiotherapists and other allied health professionals throughout Australasia.
