Motor Point Acupuncture

Motor Point Acupuncture which involves inserting a needle into a motor point (specific area of muscle where minimal stimulation is needed to cause a muscle twitch) to reset its function and strength.  Another western acupuncture technique is Dry needling or Intramuscular Stimulation.  The needles are inserted into the muscle causing a ‘twitch’ to release the muscle pain and tension.  There is no drug or any substance inserted , thus the term “dry”.  Generally speaking there is no pain.  If the muscle is tight and shortened or is being stimulated to increase some strength, the client may experience some temporary discomfort.
