Acupuncture, used for thousands of years is designed to relieve pain, discomfort, or issues by opening a person’s energy flow or ‘chi’. Dry Needling is a modern treatment designed to ease muscular pain by stimulating trigger points, or muscles that are ‘knotted’ and irritable. Both acupuncture and dry needling use thin, sterile, stainless steel needles to treat pain.
