Acupuncture/ Dry Needling

Acupuncture/ Dry needling can be used as an adjunct to treatment to help relieve muscle pain and tightness, and improve your movement. 

How dry needling works:
We place a thin and sterile needle into an acupressure point or myofascial trigger point located in a tight band of muscle, which works effectively to relax overactive muscles by targeting the neuromuscular system.

It is normal to feel some post-treatment soreness after acupuncture/ dry needling, which your physiotherapist will discuss with you. Our practitioners are highly equipped and trained to ensure that treatment is effective and meets national safety standards.
