Myofascial Dry Needling

Dry needling is an invasive procedure in which an acupuncture needle is inserted into the skin and muscle, directly at a myofascial trigger point. A myofascial trigger point consists of multiple contraction knots, which are related to the production and maintenance of the pain cycle.

Dry needling can be used over different areas of the body and many clients report great relief from a session;¬†others prefer to avoid the needles at all cost! You can discuss these options during your appointment with your therapist, the decision to proceed or not is always yours so don’t be afraid to ask any questions you may have.

Not all therapists use MDN as part of their treatment, if you are interested in this as part of your session please request an MDN therapist at time of booking over the phone. During an assessment at the beginning of your session, your therapist will decide whether MDN is something likely to assist your condition and explain to you the procedure at that time.
