What is Dry Needling?

Dry Needling is well known as an ancient form of healing.

Many physiotherapists are now using Dry Needling- or dry needling (when a physio uses it), as it has been shown to have great healing effects.

Penetration of the needle stimulates an effect at that site. The needle also stimulates the nerve fibres. These fibres then set up a central nervous system reaction. Basically, the brain knows something is going on and sends in the helpers to heal the area.

Local vasodilatation occurs and local immune responses are stimulated.
