Dry Needling

Dry Needling (Western Musculoskeletal Acupuncture)…

…is an invasive method whereby solid filament sterile needles are placed into muscles and soft tissue.

The exact benefits and mechanisms of Dry Needling are not fully known. Although there is growing scientific evidence supporting the positive effects of inserting a needle has on the electrical and chemical communications that take place in our nervous system.

Injured? Try dry needling!

Dry Needling can be effective in releasing muscle spasms and it often uses the same trigger points as traditional Chinese acupuncture. Dry Needling can also induce pain reduction in a local area.

Dry Needling is an extremely safe treatment with the therapist at Amersham Sports Massage using sterile individually packed needles, designed for single use.

Interesting session at Amersham Sports Massage as I ended up getting a little bit of Acupuncture (Dry Needling) on a particular muscle over the top of my knee (Rectus femoris) ……. massive improvement in movement already.
