Dry Needling & Cupping in Swan Hill, Kerang, Sea Lake & Birchip

To provide a holistic service and ensure you receive the best outcomes, your therapist may recommend Dry Needling and / or Cupping. But don’t worry, it is not as unusual or scary as it sounds. Dry Needling and Cupping are used by Osteopaths and Myotherapists to help relax muscles and reduce pain.

Dry Needling involves the insertion of filament needles into various trigger points or in areas of the body where we want to reduce inflammation, swelling or improve blood flow. Not to be confused with Chinese medicine acupuncture, Dry Needling is administered by health professionals and can relieve muscle tension and ‘knots’, improve range of motion and reduce pain.

Cupping involves the placement of warm cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. This suction encourages blood flow to the effected muscle and promotes healing and muscle relaxation.

Utilising Dry Needling and Cupping together promotes the production of endorphins in your body which can then go to work on healing the effected muscles and relieving tension areas.
