Dry needling Vs Acupuncture

Dry Needling…that’s Acupuncture right?

Well technically they are similar as they both:

- Use thin monofilament needles

- Aim to provide pain relief

Apart from the above, they are quite different.

Dry Needling:

- Needles are inserted directly into the tender area (e.g. muscles)

- This eases tension in the surrounding musculature

- Promotes blood flow to the area

- Facilitates the healing process


- Is a treatment modality used in Chinese Medicine, one of the oldest health practices to date

- Restores natural flow of balance by normalising energy (‘qi’) and blood

- Stops unwanted blockages along the pathways (‘meridians’)

- Holistic approach, combining body, mind and spirit
