BENEFITS OF MYOTHERAPY
MYOFASCIAL DRY NEEDLING
Dry needling involves the insertion of a very fine needle (as used in acupuncture) into a tight bundle of muscle fibers known as trigger points. The needle works to separate the fibres, loosening adhesions and allowing the muscle to lengthen back to its resting state.
This is an extremely effective treatment for the release of tight muscles, reduction or elimination of pain, increase of blood flow and range of movement and the re-education of correct neuro-muscular patterns.
But does it hurt?
Similar to massage, the tighter the soft tissue of the body (and the more it needs treatment) the more sensitive the area will be in response to manual therapies. Many clients who receive regular treatment or are not experiencing severe pain cannot even tell if the needle has been inserted or not.
If your muscle is tight enough to require dry needling then there is a high probability the treatment will feel uncomfortable, however when compared to the pain that would be associated with massage in order to achieve the same amazing results, needling is a much less painful option.
Another of the benefits of needling as a treatment is that the ‘post massage soreness’ often experienced after a deep tissue massage is significantly reduced or eliminated.
Many people experience muscle twitches when having a needling treatment, this is painless but may shock some people. It occurs as the neural pathways carrying pain signals to the brain are interrupted and the muscle is stimulated to relax.
Massage Vs. Needling.
If you planned to book a massage but are curious about the benefits of needling, there is no need to choose, needles are in for an average of 10-15 seconds and massage is performed before, during and after the application of needles, so you will not not be missing out on hands-on time.
How is Needling different to acupuncture?
Chinese acupuncture utilises the same equipment as Needling, however during an Acupuncture treatment the needles are inserted into points on the body where ‘Qi” or energy flows and aims to unblock channels to affect organs. Dry needling involves inserting needles into tight muscles to reduce tight fibres and eliminate the pain caused by these knots. Some trigger points cause referral pain (pain which radiates to other areas of the body) however Dry Needling focuses purely on pain caused by soft tissue rather than organ dysfunction.
