What is Dry Needling?


Dry Needling is an integrative therapeutic modality for soft tissue dysfunction. Dry Needling treatment results in an anti-inflammatory immune reaction which leads to self-healing and internal balance. Needling reduces secretion of norepinephrine from sympathetic nerves which stimulates the adrenaline hormones, and increase secretion of acetylcholine which normalizes immune physiology. The small needle produces signals to replace or repair the damaged tissue with new, healthy tissue.

Benefits of Dry needling:
1. Normalizes dysfunction of soft tissues
2. Balances musculoskeletal mechanics 
3. Restores systemic homeostasis and reduces bio-entropy
4. Promotes self-healing
