Acupuncture vs Dry Needling: Be Informed
I often get asked what the difference is between acupuncture and dry needling. This question is usually asked by people who have either had one and not the other, or by people who are looking to get as much help as possible for their aches and pains.
The infographic below takes a look at the similarities and differences between acupuncture and dry needling, the differences in education between acupuncturists and other allied health professionals that offer dry needling, and why acupuncturists are the leading experts in needling therapy.
Deciding what's best for you is a personal decision and like everything, some people love dry needling and some people hate it, and some people love acupuncture and some people hate it.
At my office, I do acupuncture, and I also do dry needling. I have a strong anatomy background with my massage and BodyTalk education and can help you with all your aches and pains.
