Using a needle similar to that in acupuncture, Dry Needling is the stimulation of muscle fibres by inserting a thin needle into the belly or tendon. Useful in managing pain for an assortment of muscle issues, including tightness, and both overactivity and underactivity-associated movement dysfunction. Dry Needling can also be used as part of treatment to stimulate muscle impacted by stroke, and down-train other muscles that are overshadowing underactive groups.
Both our therapists are qualified Dry Needlers, with Lachlan able to needle most major muscle groups in the body – the chest, shoulder, back, buttocks, and leg. Mason can in addition needle the face, neck (excluding the neck flexors), hands and feet, groin, pelvis, and abdomen.
