What Is Acupuncture & Dry Needling?
Acupuncture and dry needling are somewhat similar, as both methods use needles to relieve pain and restore normal muscle function yet they still have differences. We know that one technique might be more appropriate than the other, or more preferable than another, so let us help you to decide which would be more suitable for you and your condition. We want to get you the best results!
How We Can Help
Our Acupuncture & Dry Needling services are offered either individually or as part of combined treatment within a Physio treatment.
Our Physiotherapists who are trained in acupuncture and dry needling can offer their advice as to which method is most appropriate for your individual condition.
Ask around, most people don’t find it painful and can hardly even feel the needle being inserted through the skin. Depending on your condition and the needle chosen to treat it, you may feel a brief dull muscle ache or twitch reflex from the needle reaching the muscle.
Don’t worry though, these sensation only last a few seconds and are a positive reaction signalling that the treatment is working and it means that you will get good relief from your symptoms. Because of the extreme slenderness of the needle, most people compare the sensations to a mild to moderate heaviness or tingling.
