Acupuncture & Dry Needling

Dr. Bernabeu is certified in both Physician Acupuncture and in Dry Needling. Both procedures involve thin needles being placed into the skin in specific locations. Although they seem similar in their application, they have differences in technique and benefits for the body.

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that is used to balance the flow of life energy/force known as "qi" that moves through the meridians of the body and restore overall body wellness. It can also be used to treat pain resulting from musculoskeletal or neurological conditions.

Dry Needling is an alternative western medicine technique that inserts needles into areas of muscle to relieve pain and spasm to restore movement and reduce pain & inflammation. It is commonly referred to as trigger point needling and/or intramuscular manual therapy.
