Dry Needling

What is Dry Needling

Dry needling is an effective treatment for releasing muscular tightness and spasm which accompanies various conditions. The treatment involves inserting needles into a contracted or painful muscles to create a local twitch response which helps to ease the pain and tightness in the area.

Dry needling isn’t the same as the classic Chinese Acupuncture, as it has been developed based on Western medical research.

It is a relatively pain free treatment, you may or may not feel the insertion of the needle. The specific needle manipulation is intended to cause a twitch response which may elicit a brief painful response. You may feel a deep ache or heavy sensation around the needle.
