Dry Needling

Dry needling involves inserting a thin acupuncture needle into a trigger point and leaving it in place for a few minutes.

Trigger points are hyperirritable spots within a muscle that give rise to referred pain and tenderness. Often these are the areas which most people refer to as a ‘knots’ or tender spots on the body. Trigger points refer pain to other areas of the body other than the original sight of tension or pain.

Dry needling is extremely effective in eliminating trigger points in the muscles relieving pain and tension at the site and the referral area.

Dry needling is not the same as Acupuncture, with Dry needling we work directly into a muscle that we feel is causing pain, dry needling does not cover meridian and organ systems.
