What is IMS – Intramuscular Stimulation?
IMS or “dry needling” is not the typical Chinese acupuncture you have heard about, or perhaps even tried. IMS is a Western-based type of treatment developed by local Doctor, Chan Gunn. Needles, of varying lengths, are inserted into muscles that have shortened or contracted due to injury which causes the muscle to contract or “twitch”. The needle creates a small “wound” that encourages blood flow throughout the muscle and allows your body to heal itself naturally. This treatment allows access to deep muscle layers to reduce pain and provide immediate muscle release
