The aim of Dry Needling is to reduce muscle pain and dysfunction by releasing oversensitive areas in the muscle known as myofascial trigger points. When Dry Needling is applied to an affected muscle or trigger point, it reduces muscle tightness and pain, while increasing blood flow and range of motion. Patients often report immediate relief after treatment.

It is an ideal course for practicing therapists who wish to add an efficient skill to their skillset.
