Dry needling is the insertion of small monofilament sterile needles into the skin through trigger points, causing a micro lesion in the tissue that enhances the body’s ability to heal.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Is dry needling the same as acupuncture?

No, dry needling is a therapy service based on scientific study of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular nervous systems. It is termed "dry" needling because there is no fluid or medication being injected into or drawn from your body.

How does it work?

Very fine needles are inserted through the skin to trigger points, causing a micro lsion in the tissue that enhances the body's ability to heal.

What kind of needles are used?

We use sterile, flexible filament needles, which are disposable.

Does it hurt?

The needles are very fine and pierce the skin, as opposed to cutting or tearing. While some patients experience slight discomfort when the needles are inserted, our therapists work to make the procedure more comfortable and therapeutic.
