The benefits of dry needling – 3 big ones

Three benefits:

(1) Releases fascia or connective tissue more effectively than regular massage. Fascia is the tissue layer in your body right below your skin.

(2) There is a 71% overlap between acupuncture points and trigger points in the body with dry needling, therefore (by correspondence) stimulating other health benefits – not just the physical bodywork benefits.

(3)  Active trigger point patterns are particularly prevalent in tension-type headaches; dry needling aims to attack these headache symptoms direct at the source, in the neck and shoulder muscle bellies, therefore “deactivating” headache trigger point activity – in doing so alleviating headache-type symptoms.
