What is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a specialized therapeutic technique used by healthcare professionals to treat muscle pain and increase mobility. Utilizing thin, sterile needles, practitioners target myofascial trigger points – tense and knotted areas within the muscle – that are often at the root of pain and dysfunction. The procedure is designed to relieve tension, reduce pain, and promote healing in affected muscles, offering an effective solution for various conditions including chronic pain, sports injuries, and overuse syndromes.

How Does Dry Needling Work?

Dry needling is a therapeutic technique practiced by skilled professionals to alleviate pain, reduce muscular tension, and enhance mobility. Here’s a closer look at how dry needling treatment works at Red Crane Wellness:

  • The process begins with a thorough assessment to locate myofascial trigger points – tight knots within the muscle that can cause pain over a large area.
  • Once these points are identified, a thin, sterile needle is inserted into the trigger point. The goal is to target areas within the muscle that are contributing to pain and muscular issues.
  • The key to the effectiveness of the treatment lies in eliciting a local twitch response. This twitch response helps to break the cycle of pain and muscle spasms, promoting healing.
  • The insertion of the needle and the twitch response help to release the tension in the trigger point, allowing the muscle to relax.

At Red Crane Wellness, every session is tailored to the individual’s specific conditions and needs. Book your appointment with our dry needling therapist today!

Benefits of Dry Needling Treatments

Here are the key benefits of incorporating dry needling treatment into your wellness routine:

  • Improved Muscle Function – It helps in releasing knots and tension in the muscles, which can improve their function.
  • Rapid Pain Relief – By targeting trigger points directly, this therapy can relieve tension and discomfort, providing faster relief compared to traditional pain management techniques.
  • Accelerates Recovery – By stimulating the muscles and increasing blood flow to the targeted areas, it can speed up the body’s natural healing processes.
  • Reduction of Muscle Stiffness – Chronic muscle stiffness can lead to discomfort and limit movement. This treatment alleviates this stiffness, allowing for more comfortable and fluid motion.
  • Enhances Circulation – The process of needling increases blood flow to the affected areas, which is crucial for delivering nutrients and oxygen to the muscles.

I absolutely love this place! I recommend it to anyone wanting to strengthen their mind body and spirit. These treatments are completely helping my migraines when nothing I've tried for 20 years has. I'm forever grateful!

Ive tried other places before and so far this has been my best experience. Ariadni was knowledgeable and listened to me. I left feeling much better than when I walked in and I plan to return.

UPDATE: I have been working with Ariadni for some time now. I have to give this updated review to say that she has consistently amazed me at the accuracy of her treatments. I have had no vertigo, diverticulitis attacks, heart palpitations are extremely minimal now. Stress, knees all good. Don't accept pain ! You'll be amazed! Having moved to Chattanooga from the west coast,away from my beloved ,long term Chinese medicine practitioner, I searched the sites and reviews in Chattanooga for someone of equal capability. I am so happy to say that Ariadni not only meets but exceeds my highest expectations! I have ,at this point had one treatment for vertigo and tinnitus and I'm already improved. She read my pulses so accurately it was astounding! We have more to work on after the tinnitus and vertigo and I'm confident there will be excellent results! Ariadni, compounds her own herbal remedies to compliment her treatments according to your individual needs. I highly recommend Red Crane Wellness!

Dr. Spinal has very good bed side manners and was very easy to talk to. She listened very well and was very quick in giving me her professional opinion on what was going on with my health. She performed an acupuncture treatment today on me and I didn’t feel a thing when she was inserting any of the dozen or so needles in my body. I look forward to coming back.

This was my first acupuncture treatment and Dr. Spinali provided the perfectly introduction. She made me feel safe, comfortable and prepared for what was to come. The pain in my foot that led me there wasn’t gone when I left, but I was able to proceed with my hike the next day as she promised.
