Dry Needling

Trigger Point Therapy

Cupping for Athletes

Dry needling is a procedure that penetrates the skin with a solid filament needle in order to facilitate a cellular and chemical cascade of healing mechanisms. Dry needling improves myofascial flexibility, decreases muscular tension, and promotes improved biomechanical control during activity.  Dry needling is also considered a wellness intervention for stress relieve and improved coordination.

Cupping therapy is a form of Eastern Medicine that has been utilized for hundreds of years.  Dry cupping is the process by which cups are placed over the surface of the skin to create a negative pressure, pulling blood to the surface of the body.  It's theorized that this type of perfusion aids in the relief of acute & chronic pain by improving blood flow efficiency  and accelerating healing processes.
