Acupuncture is an effective complement to conventional physiotherapy treatment to reduce pain and relieve stress-related muscle tightness.

Thin needles are expertly inserted into specific points in order to stimulate the release of your bodies natural pain relieving hormones that include endorphins and serotonin to help reduce pain, improve your mood and sense of well-being. 

 

HOW DOES Myofascial Needling WORK?

Large amount of research has been conducted in to the effectiveness of this treatment in conjunction with traditional forms of treatment. The insertion of the needles has a stimulating effect on the central nervous system and pituitary gland that triggers the release of your body’s pain-relieving chemicals; endorphins, serotonin. It also stimulates nocturnal melatonin that is known to help reduce insomnia and anxiety. The process enables these chemicals to effectively provide natural pain relief.

Myofascial Needling/ Dry needling

We perform this type of acupuncture to relax muscles following chronic muscle pain, overactive muscles helping to facilitate more effective stretching and achieving improved muscle lengths to improve performance.

We simply insert pre-sterilised, single-use only needles into the target muscle for up to 20-30 minutes enabling the soft tissue to relax.

Over the years we achieve amazing results using Dry Needling with for a variety of individuals from PC-based workers who develop tight shoulders to distance runners with lower limb soft tissue tightness develop through constant training and also, Weight training who workout frequently in the gym.
