Dry Needling

Western medical acupuncture, also known as dry needling, involves the insertion of extremely fine needles into the body. Unlike traditional Chinese acupuncture, it does not rely on chakras and meridians.

what To Expect

During an osteopathic appointment, a session typically lasts for 10-15 minutes, allowing the needles to do their job. This technique is beneficial in reducing pain and improving function by promoting blood flow to the area.

The fresh blood, rich in nutrients, helps heal not only muscles but also tendons and joints. The procedure also helps relax the muscles and the body, which is significant since stress can worsen pain. If nodes and trigger points are present, the needles can also be used to treat them. The needles are so thin that most people do not feel them going in. However, the muscle may occasionally experience a neuromuscular reaction, which can feel intense but quickly fade away.

If you are interested in dry needling and want to know more, please book a free telephone consultation with Gervais Roubeix, who is in the clinic on Friday PM.

What our patients say

I had a few appointments with Joshua. He was amazing. Was so easy to talk to and made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. The techniques he used were very effective and the advice he has given me has been working wonders for my backpain. Highly recommend.

Justin is a brilliant and intuitive therapist. I only have good things to say about him. I’ve been seeing Justin for 6 years for a mix of Cranial and osteopathy, every time I leave the session feeling happy, aligned, and in complete bliss. It is truly transformative.

It was a genuine pleasure to attend Butterfield Osteopathy and to meet Maria. She has a wealth of knowledge about not only the human body as an interconnected system but also how it relates to the world at large. I find it helpful with her approach of a combination of direct and indirect work. Thanks, Maria!

I felt hugely helped and exceptionally cared for by Justin who I saw with acute lower back pain. I am so glad to have discovered this excellent local practice and am sure to book further appointments.
