Dryneedling is the modern form of acupuncture founded on the western neuroanatomy and scientific study of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. The purpose of dry needling is to quicken pain reduction, healing, and restoration of tissue function.
What Does DryNeedling Target?
Dry needling targets acupoints that correspond with motor points, nerves, and trigger points in the muscles. It provides you with a therapeutic and positive effect on the injured nerves and muscles and improves body functions.
Trigger points are hyper-irritable areas of contracted muscle fibers. They restrict blood flow to the tissue and cause a buildup of toxins and waste.

What Sensations Will You Feel During a Dry Needling Session?
I will gently insert the needle into the trigger point in a muscle, gradually pushing it in until it hits the muscle and you experience a spasm or a twitch. You may feel sore after the session or bleed a little during it.
