What is Dry Needling?

Dry Needling is an invasive procedure in which an Acupuncture needle is inserted into a specific target soft tissue in order to improve or restore function and/or control pain.

The introduction of a physical stimulus in the form of an acupuncture needle results in a healing process by relaxing muscle spasms and trigger points.


Dry Needling Vs. Acupuncture

Although the needles are the same, Dry Needling is not the same as Acupuncture. Acupuncture follows a traditional Chinese medicine theory of Energy Fields & Flows where as DN follows a more western philosophy of treating myofascial pain and dysfunction.


Is it Painful?

Dry Needling is not painful, some people may experience slight discomfort but this rarely lasts more than 30 seconds.

The healing process can cause many sensations; heat, tingling, numbness, a dull ache or just the slight pinch upon entry of the needle, but in comparison to muscular pains, the sensations are delightful!
