Dry Needling Workshop Melbourne

Dry Needling Workshop

Dry Needling Workshop Melbourne

Massage Institute Australia is holding a Dry Needling Workshop Melbourne.

Dry Needling is an advanced technique, which uses a fine filament acupuncture needle to directly access Trigger Points in Myofascial Tissue.

Once a Needle is inserted into the Trigger Point, it elicits a twitch response in the taut band, this releases the build up of calcium in the sarcomeres and allows the muscle to return to its neutral state, thereby restoring function and proper contraction.

Dry Needling can also assist in breaking the pain cycle, by providing a distraction to the ‘pain gate’, which aids those who suffer from Chronic Pain conditions.

This efficient and effective method for releasing Trigger Points, which are a common cause of repetitive strain injuries, chronic pain and restricted biomechanics, can easily be integrated into a Remedial Massage Treatment.

By incorporating Dry Needling into a Remedial Massage Treatment – the Therapist can access a larger surface area, allowing for a greater scope of treatment, reduced physical effort and potentially better outcomes for their clients.

Research has shown Dry Needling to be of benefit for: Repetitive Strain Injuries, Postural Distortions, Chronic Neck Pain and Headaches from a Myofascial origin.
