ACUPUNCTURE and DRY NEEDLING
Acupuncture for deeper relief
Also known as needle therapy, this natural, non-pharmaceutical treatment places very thin needles in targeted areas related to chronic pain. These needles then trigger the release of several hormones that the body naturally uses to decrease pain, improve mood, and more. Our experienced acupuncturists are specially trained to treat several common ailments, including pain management, stress, muscle tension, headaches, migraines, neuropathy, anxiety and depression.
We specialize in several styles of acupuncture that are best suited for different goals. Your Acupuncture Physician will review your symptoms to determine which treatment is right for you. Often it is necessary to test different styles to see which one your body responds best to.
Also known as intramuscular stimulation, this treatment also uses trigger points and motor points to stimulate the nerves and muscles responsible for the development of pain and discomfort. With dry needling, no anesthetic is used, nor is any type of liquid or medicinal agent placed through the needle. Dry needling can also speed up the recovery process, making it a popular choice for treating sports injuries.
In this form of acupuncture, a small electrical current is passed between pairs of acupuncture needles. This style often augments the use of traditional acupuncture to increase circulation and reduce inflammation, which helps reduce pain often associated with arthritis or neuropathy.
