What is dry needling?
Dry Needling, also known as Intramuscular Stimulation, is the direct needling of trigger points and muscles to combat myofascial dysfunction and muscular pain. Trigger points are sensitive areas of tight or knotted muscle fibers that can form after injuries or overuse. Dry Needling works to release areas of structural dysfunction by inducing your body’s natural healing responses, restoring motion, and breaking up facial lesions. This service is perfect for those looking for deep & lasting musculoskeletal pain relief.

Why to be cautious when scheduling?
Dry Needling is best performed by a licensed Acupuncturist with specialized training in Dry Needling and trigger points. Licensed Acupuncturists train for least three years on needle insertions around the human body, including nerve and vascular anatomy. Depending on what an individual has going on, there are certain areas that can be dangerous if needled incorrectly. Unfortunately, no regulatory agency currently controls training, licensure, or supervision for Dry Needling, and as a result, there are weekend courses for certification available to sports injury therapists. We highly advise you to get any needle insertion services done by a licensed Acupuncturist or Medical practitioner.
Each dry needling treatment is performed by our licensed acupuncturist specializing in dry needling and trigger points. For best results, your practitioner may use a combination of traditional acupuncture needling with dry needling, depending on your condition(s).
