Utilization of Integrative Dry Needling and Myofascial Cupping to improve blood flow, promote soft tissue healing, decrease muscle tension, relax the nervous system, release pain and improve mobility.
Dry Needling & Cupping can be used to treat conditions of the neck, back, shoulder and arm pain (tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, golfers elbow), headache to include migraines and tension-type headaches, jaw pain, buttock pain, hip pain, leg pain (sciatica, hamstring strains, calf tightness/spasms).
Dry Needling is based on neuroanatomy and modern scientific studies of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems. A very fine sterile filament needle is inserted through the skin and into the deeper tissues that are considered trigger points to your pain.
Dry Needling works by causing a micro-injury within the painful tissue thus breaking up shortened tissues, inhibiting a reflex arc from the nervous system to the tissue, normalizing the inflammatory response, and releasing the pain. This mechanical and neuromuscular effect provides an environment that enhances the body's ability to heal which ultimately reduces pain and improves function.
“Cupping therapy” is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation, and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Myofascial cupping is performed utilizing silicone cups in a static or dynamic pattern to decrease pain, promote healing, improve blood flow, improve range of motion, manipulate tissue connections, provide neurosensory stimulation to relax the nervous system.
