Courses for Healthcare and Fitness Professionals






About NAT Home-Study Courses

NAT courses are designed to provide continued education for qualified therapists, healthcare workers, and exercise professionals.

Whether you are new to trigger points, or have been working with TrPt's for years, NAT courses provide you with the latest evidence-based treatment techniques and advanced learning materials from some of the worlds leading manual therapists.

Each course is fully illustrated, easy to study, and designed to deliver practical knowledge that you can apply immediately in your practice.

NAT Certification and Continued Education Credits

NAT learning credits are applied to each course. By completing the required number of credits you may qualify for NAT Levels 1-3 Certification.

Most NAT courses are also accredited for CEU/CPE/CPD credits.

Where to start?

We recommend starting with the Trigger Point Therapy Diploma Course.

This course is available as a low-cost starter-pack, or can be purchased together with other NAT courses in a number of value-pack options. See below.

How to certify NAT?

In order to certify NAT you will need to complete the exams that apply to each course that you take.

All NAT exams are completed online using our online exam portal where you can create an account to save your answers as you go along. This means that you won't need to complete any exam in one sitting.

Print or Digital Editions

All NAT courses are available as either Print or Download editions. If you choose to order a print edition, you will automatically also receive the download edition.

This enables us to provide you with free copies of any future updates (most courses are updated at least once per year). 


In addition to customer service support, we provide comprehensive clinical support to every NAT member.

NAT trained clinicians are always on hand to help you through the learning process, or to provide guidance with any aspect of NAT treatment.

Save on Top Rehab Tech

Scraping, a manual, ancient practice where pain points are worked with a gua sha (smooth-edged tool), reportedly increases blood flow by up to 400 per cent more than foam rolling and massage guns. By breaking up old, damaged blood vessels to promote new growth and healing, these tools are useful for getting into the nooks and crannies of a pain point, especially in delicate areas like along the shin muscles and under the foot.

Tim Tian has taken the scraper idea and supercharged it, creating a manual, triangular tool that blends heat and vibration therapy. “Cold blades stiffen muscles, blocking a deep release,” he says.

The heated scraper device takes just three seconds to reach 50ºC. This helps muscles soften, making it easier to massage away tension, increase blood flow and promote healing. The scraper is specially great for alleviating delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) in the quads, and provides a relaxing switch-up from the foam roller slog.
