Dry needling

Dry needling

We use dry needling (having consulted with you first) with many of our treatments but what's the difference between Dry Needling and Acupuncture?

Well, both involve the application of needles to the body to help resolve an issue. However, the intention behind these applications is different.

With Dry Needling (as we practice at The Green Well) we're applying needles to the muscle with the intention to either stimulate a rush of blood/nutrients/endorphins to the area to aid healing or to encourage a muscle in spasm to relax.

Dry Needling is very much an extension of the massage work we do with our hands. It is also sometimes called Medical Acupuncture.

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture is based on the belief that an energy (Qi) flows through the body in channels called meridians. When the Qi doesn't flow freely through the body, this can cause illness. Acupuncture can restore the flow of Qi by stimulating these meridians and so restore health.

This was the weekend... when those foolhardy/heroic souls started to get serious about @londonmarathon 
We saw plenty of knee issues, tight calves, quad imbalances,  plus folks sensible enough to come see us for preventative measures.

We're always in awe of those who take on the challenge, whether seasoned athletes or debut charity runners and after 10 years working on your bodies we have 3 key advice points: - ⚘Nip that niggle in the bud early
- 🏃🏽‍♀️Take your warm down seriously - 🦶🏼Look after your feet
