What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is the western take on traditional Chinese acupuncture methods. Instead of focusing on meridian lines (chi), we focus on anatomical landmarks and local musculature to elicit a positive response in the tissue.
Although puncturing the skin causes little to no physical injury, the stimulation is enough to produce a natural healing response by the body. This is why there is increased circulation locally to the injection site and wound healing and pain modulation.
If you struggle with lower back pain, neck pain, arthritis, or tension headaches, you will benefit from acupuncture treatment.

Does Dry Needling Hurt?
There is little to no pain during the insertion of the needle. Some people report a slight warming sensation after the needle has been in the position for a short time. This is due to increased local circulation.
Once the needle is inserted, it is stimulated occasionally by twisting or gentle oscillations. This will increase the body's response and further increase the benefits of acupuncture.
