What is dry needling?

Dry needling is a treatment technique where a sterile, single-use, acupuncture needle is inserted into the muscle to assist with decreasing pain and improving function through the release of myofascial trigger points (knots in muscle). When the needle inserts into the centre of a myofascial trigger point, blood pools around the needle triggering the contracted muscle fibres to relax. It also helps to provide those fibres with fresh oxygen and nutrients, as well as by flushing away any additional acidic chemicals.

What is the difference between dry needling and acupuncture?

Dry needling is not the same as acupuncture, although there are similarities between the two techniques. Dry needling’s primarily focused on the reduction of pain and restoration of function through the release of myofascial trigger points in the muscle. In comparison, acupuncture focuses on the treatment of medical conditions by restoring the flow of energy (Qi) through critical points in the body (meridians) to restore balance.

What To Expect From
An Acupuncture Session

The initial consultation would begin with the case history, talking through the presenting signs & symptoms this also covers current medical history, any previous health issues, surgeries, diet, exercise, sleep, hydration, stools, urination. A pulse and tongue diagnosis is then carried out. From all the information the therapist will select the points to carry out.

Follow up, which is usually next week will focus on how the client has been following the last session, again with questioning, pulse & tongue so as to assess the clients progress and needle selection as the clients condition changes and resolves.

Who Will Perform The Treatment?

The treatment is administered by a professional therapist trained in delivering acupuncture.
