Covid 19 update
Important Covid19 Update – Now in Tier 4
Due to new government restrictions of Tier 4, Miach Holistic Therapies are closed until these restrictions are lifted. If any of my customers have purchased vouchers for themselves, friends or family for this year – please do not worry – they will all still be honoured. I really hope that all of my customers and their families are staying safe, and thank you for all your support and patience.
Dry Needling now Available!
Dry Needling and Medical Acupuncture is now available here as Will has just completed his Dry Needling practioners course.
Dry Needling is a treatment technique whereby a sterile, single-use, fine filament needle (acupuncture needle) is inserted into the muscle to assist with decreasing pain and improving function through the release of myofascial trigger points (knots in the muscle).
Dry Needling is a not the same as acupuncture, although there are similarities between the two techniques. The main difference between Dry Needling and acupuncture is the theory behind why the techniques work. Dry Needling is primarily focused on the reduction of pain and restoration of function through the release of myofascial trigger points in muscle. In comparison, acupuncture focuses on the treatment of medical conditions by restoring the flow of energy (Qi) through key points in the body (meridians) to restore balance.

What is Dry Needling?
Dry Needling is a treatment technique whereby a sterile, single-use, fine filament needle (acupuncture needle) is inserted into the muscle to assist with decreasing pain and improving function through the release of myofascial trigger points (knots in the muscle). Alwyn is now fully qualified after completing a course in Medical Acupuncture and Advanced Dry Needling.
Dry Needling Course
Miach Holistic Therapies love to continue to provide you with the latest treatments – so in September of this year, Will is embarking on a CPD course in dry needling. For those that don’t know – the dry needling technique uses a “dry” needle, one without medication or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle. This treatment is known to relieve pain or improve range of motion. Research also suggest that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, and normalises nerve impulses. This can help improve the patient’s return to active rehabilitation. Wish me luck!
Miach Qualifications update
In March this year, I requalified for both St Johns ambulance first aid in the work place, and AED (Automated External difibulation). These qualifications are valid for the upcoming 3 years – I take workplace safety and wellbeing very seriously. 🙂
