"Medical Acupuncture (Dry Needling) involves inserting fine needles for a therapeutic effect. Overall, it is an adaptation of the Chinese method just using modern up-to-date knowledge of anatomy and physiology"
What to Expect
The area will be cleaned with antibacterial gel. The needles themselves are small enough to fit into the centre of a hypodermic needle, and the process of application is incredibly quick.
I will be looking for the muscle to 'twitch', allowing for your body's pain relieving chemicals to flood to the area, providing relief.
Once this has happened, the needle will be removed and disposed of safely.
