Superficial Dry Needling is the style of dry needling conducted by massage therapists at Advantage Healthcare. This style of dry needling is used in conjunction with standard massage therapy techniques (although not on the same area at the same time!).
Superficial Dry Needling involves inserting a small diameter needle into your body to achieve therapeutic effects. These therapeutic effects include:
- Release of trigger point tension
- Improved circulation
- Relief of pain through natural chemical release in your body
- Altered immune response
The needle is inserted less than 10mm to ensure the technique is safe.
