Dry needling is a technique that can be used by Myotherapists to treat a variety of musculoskeletal problems, myofascial pain and joint/muscle dysfunction. It is a highly effective form of treatment and is aimed at reducing pain and increasing movement/ blood flow to a muscle or joint. Dry needling involves inserting a small thin filament needle (generally 2mm width) into the skin and a myofascial trigger point. Trigger points develop as a result of general daily activities, such as; sport, poor posture and repetitive stress/work tasks and can cause referral pain patterns and discomfort.
Myofascial Cupping is a form of myofascial release and trigger point therapy. The application of slightly pressurised (ie suctioned) cups helps to lift and separate soft tissue (muscles & fascia), allowing for improved fluid movement and nutrient supply to the soft tissues. This triggers tissue detoxification, and improves range of motion of the affected tissue(s).
