Treatment Time: 15-45 minutes


How does it work?

Dry Needling is a valuable, effective and efficient adjunct treatment to inactivate myofascial trigger points (tight knots found in muscles).


It is an invasive procedure in which a thin solid filament sterile needle is used to inactivate the myofascial trigger points by producing a local twitch response.


This local twitch response then releases the shortened bands of muscle fibers. The result is muscle relaxation and pain relief. Eliciting this local twitch response is key for successful deactivation of the trigger point.


No medication of any kind is injected.


Inactivation of the trigger points can bring immediate relief of symptoms.

(Not a fan of needles? CryoStretch is a great alternative!)

"I was suffering with severe shoulder pain for close to six months. I could barely perform routine daily chores without severe pain, let alone exercise and enjoy my sports activities. I was waking up many times a night due to the pain, and it was impossible to find a comfortable sleeping position.

My wife was researching trying to find someone that performed therapeutic massage when she found Restore Therapy Spa and discovered their Dry Needling therapy. The therapist diagnosed me with a frozen shoulder, and after the first session I had immediate relief and felt better than I had in six months.

My case was rather severe so I saw her for 10 sessions. I was pretty much pain free after a few sessions but needed additional treatments in order to free the shoulder and restore full range of motion. I am a firm believer in my therapist and this technique and highly recommend the therapists at Restore Therapy Spa to anyone suffering in pain."
