Trigger Point Needling
Trigger Point Needling, much like acupuncture, involves inserting fine needles into specific points on the skin to restore balance and encourage the body to heal itself. It is particularly effective for musculoskeletal problems and pain syndromes.
This is not just for pregnant women, but for anyone experiencing musculoskeletal problems and pain. We are currently not offering it for weight loss, fertility, or to stop smoking.
It will be performed by Dr William Barnes or Dr Ross Jose. Dr Jose, who has 30+ years as a GP and was one of the first medical practitioners in WA to train in Trigger Point Needling . He practiced for many years before moving over to obstetrics, but since he is currently having a break from RGH, he is keen to reopen his Trigger Point Needling Clinic.
COST: $10.00 per session provided you have a current Medicare Card.
$5.00 per session provided you have a current Medicare Card and valid Concession Card.
