Acupuncture & Dry Needling

Reduce pain or improve movement with the insertion of fine needles into specific points on the body

What is Acupuncture and Dry Needling?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine that involved stimulating certain body points with a needle penetrating the skin. Dry Needling is a technique used to get the muscle and nerve junction to release the muscle and is similar in that a needle is inserted into the skin to reduce pain. 

The difference between acupuncture and dry needling is that acupuncture treats to alter the flow of energy along traditional Chinese meridians,  while dry needling follows evidence-based guidelines, recommended point of location and dosages for the treatment of a specific condition.

What conditions can Acupuncture
and Dry Needling help?

Acupuncture and dry needling can help the following conditions such as muscle spasms, sciatic pain, headaches and migraines, tendonitis, joint pain and plantar fasciitis.

Can Acupuncture and Dry Needling benefit me?

Both techniques can have a wide range of health benefits, including a reduction in aches and pains, increased blood circulation, increased energy levels, improved digestion, improved sleep, and stress reduction.

Are Acupuncture and Dry Needing suitable for me?

Whilst both are suitable treatments for most people, we wouldn’t recommend them for children under the age of 12, or if you have a needle phobia or a history of an abnormal reaction to an injection, have lymphedema or a pregnant. If you have an immune system disorder it is not appropriate.
