Dry Needling

Also known as “dry needling” in the sports/physical therapy industry, Dr. Ragsdale relies on proven acupuncture and healing techniques that should only be performed by a licensed acupuncturist. As such, the body can benefit from one or more treatments designed to help promote balance in the body (Qi or Chi – pronounced: Chee) for common ailments and physical injury, as well as increased blood flow and healing.

Dr. Ragsdale is able to elicit the “De Qi”, or the arrival of Qi, through proper diagnosis, point/meridian selection, and his refined, wellness-focused techniques. Dr. Ragsdale has studied classical Chinese styles, Japanese acupuncture, trigger point therapy, and now, while practicing Master Tung acupuncture, has come into practice and style all of his own.
