Dry Needling, Myofascial Dry Needling and Musculoskeletal Acupuncture

Musculoskeletal pain is usually linked to trigger points or tender points that are sensitive to manual stimulation. These points are usually in the belly of the muscle and feel like a tight band.

Dry Needling can be used by itself or in addition to massage therapy. Fine acupuncture needles are inserted into the trigger points which creates a release in the muscle, relaxing the taut muscle fibre and reducing pain. Musculoskeletal acupuncture targets the musculoskeletal system instead of trigger points. Most people find this to be a painless procedure. This muscle release remains for up to 72 hours after the treatment. Between 1 and 3 treatments can reduce pain, make muscle tissue softer and improve flexibility.

Myofascial Dry Needling can also help surgery recovery, migraines and arthritis.

Visceral Manipulation

Visceral manipulation is a gentle, hands-on technique used to encourage and support the normal mobility, tone and motion of the viscera (internal organs). These gentle manipulations can improve the functioning of individual organs, the systems the organs function within and the structural integrity of the entire body.
