Acupuncture & Dry Needling

Carly is trained in both acupuncture and dry needling which can be included in your physiotherapy treatment plan.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves inserting very fine needles into specific points in your body.

The purpose is to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue to boost your body’s natural painkillers and relieve pain.


What is dry needling?

Dry needling uses the same needles that are used for acupuncture, but instead of using traditional acupuncture points, it targets “trigger points” or muscle knots by pistoning the needle around the point once the needle has been inserted. It provides a more immediate release of muscle tension, pain and spasm.

Dry needling provides relief for muscle pain and stiffness which subsequently helps better movement and flexibility with less pain. It’s very effective for muscle pain, sports injuries or even fibromyalgia pain.
