Dry Needling

Dry Needling

Dry needling works on the nervous system and myofascia to reduce tone in muscles, and improve blood flow and range of movement. Trigger point needling uses slightly thicker needles, which are inserted into points of muscular tension that are impeding the function of the muscles.

How is it different to Acupuncture?

  • Traditional Chinese acupuncture points are not used
  • Needles are not stimulated after they’re inserted
  • More needles are used
  • Needles are directed at fascia or trigger points.
