What is Dry Needling?

At Restore Health Myotherapy in Frankston, we specialise in Dry needling. Dry Needling is  a technique used for the treatment of muscular pain and dysfunction in both acute and chronic conditions. The technique involves inserting a fine, sterile acupuncture needle into the trigger points (hyperirritable spots) of the affected muscles. When trigger points are active within the muscles they can cause motor dysfunction, local tenderness and pain that radiates to other regions of the body.

What is Vacuum Cupping?

Cupping is derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine which is based on the belief that conditions such as asthma, common cold, skin conditions, chronic pain and musculoskeletal problems stem from imbalances in the body's life force or chi (energy flow).

Pain and tightness in the body can be a sign of bundled up muscle fibres or fascia. Cupping is an effective technique which may be used to relieve such factors.
