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.

As flattering as it is, I really hope we can ditch some of this get-up very soon...

We hope you all had a good one. We're filling the buckets, ready for Śmigus-dyngus (look it up 😆) tomorrow.
