Trigger Point Acupuncture "Dry Needling"

Trigger points or knots can develop due to poor body mechanics (such as hunching over a desk), overexertion (like standing for extended periods of time or using a blow dryer all day), or from injury. These knots occur when muscle fibers fuse together, reducing range of motion and disrupting blood flow. Healthy blood flow is essential for muscles, tissue, and other areas of the body to heal and repair. If left untreated, trigger points and knots can worsen, leading to tears and intense pain. Acupuncture can be used to alleviate these knots by breaking up adhesions through the muscle fibers, resulting in a twitch response. After an acupuncture session, there may be increased range of motion as proper blood flow is restored. Similar to a deep tissue massage or a strenuous workout, some soreness may be experienced. 


Cupping is an ancient healing technique that involves suctioning areas of the body that are experiencing pain. This practice aids in reducing muscular spasms, restoring normal blood flow to the affected area, and improving circulation. The suctioning process helps to bring impure, “toxic” blood to the surface of the skin, where it is then eliminated by the lymphatic system. If a person has a lot of dark cupping marks after a session, this indicates that there was a large amount of stagnant blood which needed to be released. With regular use of cupping, the marks will become lighter in color, signifying improved circulation and a reduction in pain. Cupping marks typically last from 3 to 7 days.
