What Is Dry Needling?

Dry Needling: also known as intramuscular stimulation, is the use of small acupuncture needles to stimulate specific reactions in an area of muscle tissue and the surrounding fascia, or membrane, in order to alleviate pain and reduce muscle tension. Dry needling is a deeper treatment than acupuncture and is different in that it is not affecting ones "chi" but changing the patients physiological structure.
