Dry Needling in Chelsea Heights
What is dry needling?
In the course of your treatment at Total Balance Healthcare, your practitioner may suggest dry needling – but don’t worry, though it sounds a little scary, it’s actually quite painless. The practice of dry needling includes inserting acupuncture needles into various trigger points on the body. By stimulating the trigger points, located in specific muscle bands, practitioners can undo ‘knots’, relax overactive muscles and reduce pain.
Not to be confused with Chinese medicine acupuncture, dry needling must be administered by healthcare professionals with specific training.
