If you have encountered dry needling for the first time, chances are that you might think it is the same as acupuncture. They are not. In fact, they are worlds apart in terms of their philosophy. Dry needling has a Western medicine background whereas acupuncture has an Oriental/Asian background.
Also, dry needling involves targeting a particular problem area with a needle. Acupuncture involves insertion of needles in pressure points to address a particular problem. There are other various differences between dry needling and acupuncture. However, this article will deal with dry needling and the various benefits that come with using our dry needling service in Nar Nar Goon.
Disambiguating the dry needling process
Dry needling is based on the idea that addressing that specific problem area will solve the issue. Normally, problem areas carry a lot of tension creating knots in the process. The dry needling practitioner will first detect the problem area. He then inserts the needle paying particular attention to the tension in the muscle. When the therapist is satisfied that the muscle is relaxed and that the client is pain-free, he or she removes the needle.
In a nutshell, this needle therapy is designed to release tension and also stimulate the body to release healing chemicals.
