Dry Needling Armadale


Frequently Asked Questions

How long do the needles stay in?

The needles stay in for about 20 minutes.

Are the needles sterilised?

The needles come in sealed packets. They are sterile and are only used once then disposed of in a medical “sharps” container.

Will I bleed?
Not usually, although sometimes there may be a little drop as the needle is removed which is picked up with a cotton tip, not a bandage! Most people don’t lose even a drop of blood.

Will it hurt?
Often you won’t even know the needle has gone in. It is inside a little tube, and Paul will tap gently on the tip of the needle. Sometimes you might feel a slight sensation. I think it feels like being nipped by those tiny little ants that are always at picnics, or maybe a bit like a mozzie bite.
