What is dry needling?
Dry needling is an effective treatment for tension or spasm within the muscle(s). Dry needling is proven to help improve pain, reduce muscle tension and speed up recovery time. The treatment is called ‘dry’ needling because there is no solution inserted into the muscle(s); instead, either solid or hollow-core hypodermic needles are used and directed into the muscle towards a trigger point.
How does the process work?
When you book in for a session of dry needling therapy, we will assess your body to see where the discomfort is coming from. We will then carry out a few tests to see what muscle(s) is causing the problem and if you’re happy, we will then proceed to treat the area with the small needles. The benefits of using needles are that we can be more accurate with the trigger point, and get to the source of the pain quicker and easier.
