This is a training programme with immediate clinical applicability upon completion. Entry Requirements Individuals wanting to participate on the National Qualification in Trigger Point Needling programme must hold the National Qualification in Neuromuscular Therapy or equivalent.

The National Qualification in Frequency Specific Microcurrent is an advanced certification qualification, delivered by the NTC's College of Complimentary Medical Education (CCME) and offers graduates the opportunity to treat patients with micro electrical charges which reduce pain and improve health. This programme consists of one two day tutorial session and one three day tutorial session with both a practical and written examination on completion of the second three day tutorial. The course includes lecture time and hands on practice time. The lecture includes the research data and conceptual framework within which the observed and documented FSM effects can be explained. The concepts are from physics, biophysics and thermodynamics but are structured in lay terms. The frequencies and treatment protocols for myofascial pain, disc, facet and nerve pain are taught on the first day. The protocols and frequencies for concussion, nervous system and visceral conditions and emotional issues are taught on the second and third day with examination taking place on the fourth day. The course includes diagnostic procedures for inner ear concussion, discogenic and facet generated and neuropathic pain. The 6 hours of practical sessions include setting up and operating and caring for the

machine and the gloves and how to use the protocols to treat various body parts. The treatment method and application is different from any other way of treating muscular pain for example because the hands are placed in such a way as to allow current to flow through the tissue being treated and pressure is used only to move the tissue while the frequency is breaking up the scar tissue. The National Qualification in Frequency Specific Microcurrent is open to qualified individuals including doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, acupuncturists, occupational therapists, massage therapists, and neuromuscular therapists. Some other complementary therapists may also be eligible. New Injury Case Study The patient was a 19 year old male driver of a vehicle rear-ended by another vehicle traveling approximately 60 miles an hour. The injuries expected from this magnitude of collision would have been significant and the patient would have been symptomatic for approximately three to four months. He was treated with Frequency Specific Microcurrent within five hours of the accident using the frequencies for new injuries. The next day he was almost pain free with full range of motion. A second treatment the next day reduced the pain to 0-1/10 on a visual analogue scale. On the fourth post accident day, when the pain would have been at its worst had he not been treated with FSM, he was pain free. This information can be verified by Dr. Michael Hatrak, the patient's father.

The NTC is committed to ensuring that the content of the programme is
14

accessible to all those enrolled and that graduates will offer practical, effective and ethical assistance when dealing with equine therapeutic issues. Entry to the National Qualification in Equine Neuromuscular Therapy programme is open to all individuals with a professional equine background and to those with a background in NMT. Individuals with a keen amateur interest in horses and other applicants will be considered on an individual basis.

An essential objective of the Equine Therapist is to work towards the creation of balance in the animal body as opposed to working on specific areas as this can actually help to create imbalance. This would be counterproductive and detrimental to the objectives of the therapy. The National Qualification in Equine Neuromuscular Therapy is held twice per year at the Kill International Equestrian Centre in Co. Kildare. The course is held on Mondays as this is traditionally a quiet day in the equine and bloodstock industry. Students of the programme have access to the learning and study facilities at the National Training Centre. These facilities include a book and video library. Reading and viewing rooms are also available. This course commences twice annually - once in Spring and once in Autumn . Demand for the strictly limited number of places is high. Full details are available on our website at www.ntc.ie or by calling our office of administration in Dublin on 01 882 7777
