Integrative Dry Needling
Integrative dry needling is not acupuncture, it is based on neuro-anatomy and modern scientific study of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems. A very fine filament needle is inserted through the skin and into the deeper tissues that are considered trigger points to your pain.
What conditions can be treated?
Conditions include, but are not limited to neck, back and shoulder pain, arm pain (tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, golfer’s elbow), headache to include migraines and tension- type headaches, jaw pain, buttock pain and leg pain (sciatica, hamstrings strains, calf tightness/spasms).

Cupping is a form of decompressive manual therapy. It lifts the skin, fascia, and muscle to reduce compressive forces, and improve fluid exchange in a painful area. This helps bring in more blood flow, flush out stagnant lymphatic fluid, and decrease recovery time. Cupping can be performed statically or dynamically to focus on reducing sensitivity or increasing functional mobility, respectively.
