Acupuncture & Dry Needling



Over 4000 scientific studies have been published on the efficacy of acupuncture for a variety of painful conditions and medical disorders. Evidence suggests that acupuncture can effectively treat symptoms (chronic neck pain, low back pain, myofascial pain, tennis elbow etc.) by stimulating the production and release of the body's own opiate and morphine-like neurotransmitters known as endorphin's. Like these drugs, acupuncture affects how the brain perceives pain.

Dry Needling: 

Dry needling is a very effective treatment technique used to release myofascial trigger points, decrease pain, increase range of motion, improve blood flow, and restore functional movement. 

It involves the use of a very fine (usually 0.3mm/30 gauge) solid filament sterile needle (also used for acupuncture), which is inserted  directly into the target muscle. Each trigger point takes less than a minute to treat. Benefits can be observed in as little as one session.
