While dry needling is a common practice among physiotherapists, it’s not something most people are used to getting from their dental visit!
Dry needling is a type of acupuncture. Similar to acupuncture, the practice uses the same type of needle and follows many of the same points. Dry needling works a little like the way a massage works when fingers dig into a sore area. It decreases myofascial tension and improves musculoskeletal function.
Acupuncture is traditionally based upon the Chinese theory of meridians (also called acupoints) which are channels of which Qi and the other fundamental substances (blood, body fluid, essence, and spirit) flow. Meridians are similar to what western medicine refers to as the circulatory system.
As part of our holistic approach we also offer Reiki and Reflexology.
