Dry Needling | Physiozone

There is a clear scientific approach to dry needling, and it works by changing the way your body senses pain (neurological effects), and by helping the body heal muscle spasm associated with trigger points. Dry Needling is used to treat pain and dysfunction caused by muscle and connective tissue problems, sinus trouble, headaches, and some nerve problems.


Kinesiotaping | Physiozone

To ensure that the muscles have free range of motion, elastic tapes with an elasticity of 130-140% of its original length are recommended for Kinesio Taping. Applications can also encourage lymphatic fluid to move from areas of high pressure to low pressure and towards working lymph nodes. The Kinesio Taping applications are a major breakthrough which substantially reduce recovery times and improve fitness levels.
