The Haynes Method Dry Needling Certification


The Haynes Method of Neuromuscular Dry Needling is a 64-hour certification process with ½ the content being live interactive virtual lecture and the other ½ being live in-person lab sessions


Live, synchronous lectures are ongoing at this time and are stored in the student portal.  Students may enroll in the Certification course and the attend the live virtual lectures asynchronously at any time.


Lectures 1-4 must be completed, and assignments posted prior to attending the first in-person lab session.  Lectures 5-16 must be completed, and assignments posted prior to attending the final 3 day in-person lab session for Certification.


The in-person lab sessions are being offered at Haynes PT in North Texas, in Yadkinville, North Carolina, and Chesterton, IN.   We will gladly entertain alternative lab sites if that would suit your needs.  Contact info@haynesptinstitute for more information.


The live interactive virtual lecture will be completed in 16 2-hour lectures.  The first 4 lectures will comprise the introductory material.  At that point there will be a 1 day live in-person lab session where you will perform the introductory dry needling techniques.  Upon successful completion of that lab experience you will be able to move on to the rest of the content.  Each participant will be required to document 100 dry needling sessions prior to attending the remainder of the live in-person lab sessions.


There will be 12 additional 2-hour live interactive virtual lectures before you can attend the 3 day live in-person lab sessions where you will perform the advanced dry needling techniques.


There will be assignments required after each of the live virtual lectures and there will be lab practical exams prior to completion of each of the live in-person labs.


After successful completion of the required assignments and successful completion of the in-person dry needling labs and lab practicals, the participant will be awarded the certification in Dry Needling (CHDN).
