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.

Snow clouds are gathering 😁🌨 

Although this is London, so it'll probably be a mild sleet, followed by a light drizzle and finished off with some gentle spitting...

Although it always make me so happy to see the horizon 😊

Homemade hearty veg and pearl barley soup to end a 24 hour fast (water only). 

In this time, where so much of the external is shaping our day-to-day lives, it was interesting to focus on the physiological, emotional and mental effects of not eating for a period of time. Focusing in on the self again, listening in to the body and the mind. I'm glad I did it 😊
