dry needling

What is
dry needling?

Dry needling is an effective form of treatment involving the placement of thin, sterile needles in and around injury sites, dry needling can also be used to treat trigger points and muscle tension.

Our therapists place the needles in ‘trigger points’ in your muscle or tissue. The points are areas of knotted or hard muscle.

Dry needling aids the release of endorphins, which can serve as a natural painkiller. These endorphins are continually released for around 48 hours following treatment.

Dry needling isn’t just effective at relieving pain, it also encourages the body to heal and restore itself in response to the presence of the needles.
