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.

So… you can go out and have a cold pint, a tasty meal or a banging haircut but unfortunately the Government still hasn’t given massage therapists the green light to return to the treatment table…

As of Monday 6th July, Scottish Sports Massage Therapists will be able to return to work, so there is the confident expectation that the English Government will be following suit very soon. In the meantime, we are fine tuning our infection control policy and wait with bated breath to get back to the job we love.

If you have a niggle, have injured yourself on your daily exercise excursion or want some advice on suitable stretching/strengthening for a chronic issue we're here to help - free of charge, via email, phone or Skype/Zoom - just get in touch 😊
