IMS is a therapeutic treatment that uses acupuncture needles to target tight, hyperactive and sore muscles. IMS releases tight muscles, reducing nerve pain and irritation, and restoring a normal range of motion. The effects are cumulative, as each treatment builds upon the previous session to stimulate healing.

What is the difference between IMS, Acupuncture, and Dry Needling?
The three main types of acupuncture are IMS, dry needling, and acupressure. They all work by stimulating points along the meridians in the body. However, they differ in how they do it. IMS uses needles inserted into specific points along the meridian. Dry needling works by inserting fine filaments through the skin at the point where the meridian meets the surface of the skin. Acupressure works by applying pressure to certain points on the body using finger pads or thumbs.
