Dry needling is a holistic technique used to relieve pain and improve the range of motion. It involves inserting thin, solid needles into the skin and tissues but without injecting any medication. At Wellth, we believe in wholesome and safe alternative medicine treatments to help you align your energy and live a pain-free life.
Dry needling is based on traditional acupuncture principles, which involve using needles to stimulate energy flow in the body. It is a distinct alternative practice focusing on the musculoskeletal system and does not involve the same meridian based approach used in traditional acupuncture.
The goal of dry needling, at Wellth, is to release tension in tight muscles, trigger points, and other areas of the body where pain and discomfort are experienced. The needles are inserted into the muscle and are manipulated to create a twitch response in the muscle.
The twitch response is believed to break up the knots, promote blood flow, and provide oxygen to the trigger area. Getting rid of these knots with the needles also balances your energy in a safe and holistic way.
Dry needling is generally considered safe when performed by trained practitioners like our Wellth Experts. If you have a fear of needles, then this may not be the right treatment for you.
