As FSN is based on modern anatomical and physiological knowledge rather than traditional one, it is easy for practitioners who have already had these knowledges such as physiotherapists and biomedical practitioners. If you are an existing acupuncturists, physiotherapists or medical healthcare professionals, it is easier to learn this skill and therapy.

We have designed Foundation Course which is for beginners. Advanced Course for those who require more advanced skills and techniques.

Foundation Course

This course is divided equally between direct contact time and self-directed learning. It is designed to offer participants a level of knowledge, skill and understanding that will allow them to practice the Fu’s Subcutaneous Needling (FSN) acupuncture therapy in a safe and appropriate manner, in a clinical setting.

The course provides a western medical approach to acupuncture - grounded in current research evidence rather than in traditional Chinese philosophical thinking. More detailed knowledge and skills of the soft tissues such as subcutaneous tissue, muscles and its physiology and pathology will be emphasized.

Participants will be encouraged to critically evaluate their own clinical practice and where appropriate, challenge the current evidence base. This course is designed to provide participants with a rationale for using FSN acupuncture as an adjunctive treatment for the management of common musculoskeletal pain conditions and some internal organs disorders. Topics covered include the skin, fascial structure, muscle and muscular system’s physiology and pathology, and their relations to most of pain and other disorders.
