placing dry needlesWhat is Dry Needling?

Dry Needling is a treatment approach that involves inserting a thin filiform needle into the skin in order to stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points. A trigger point is a tight band of skeletal muscle that can be tender to the touch, and may cause pain in other parts of the body when touched.

When a “dry” needle, one without medication or injection, is inserted into a trigger point, it is assisting your body in relaxation of the painful trigger point. This helps to decrease pain, restore flexibility, and improve movement patterns.

Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy that uses suction to help circulate blood and relieve muscle tension. The suction and negative pressure produced by the cupping releases rigid soft tissues, loosens adhesions, lifts connective tissues and brings blood and lymph flow to stagnant skin and muscles. It is often used among athletes to speed up muscular and soft tissue recover after injury and strain.
