What is Dry Needling?
It involves the placement of Acupuncture needles into specific areas of tension, or “trigger points, in muscle. While Dry Needling and Acupuncture both utilize the same tiny needles, the theory and technique behind their use differs. Trigger points in muscles will often feel like “knots” and can lead to local pain, dysfunction, and referred pain in other areas of the body. A common example of this would be trigger points in the trapezius muscle leading to headaches. The goal with Dry Needling is to relieve muscle tension and promote healing by relaxing the muscle and improving circulation to areas of dysfunction.

- Neck pain
- Tennis/ golfer/ and climbers elbow
