Massage & Wellness Therapy

We encourage massage therapy for our patients in Clifton because it improves circulation by bringing oxygen and other nutrients to body tissues. It relieves muscle tension and pain, increases flexibility and mobility, and helps clear lactic acid and other waste, which reduces pain and stiffness in muscles and joints. The massage therapist uses long, smooth strokes, kneading and other movements focused on superficial layers of muscle using massage oil or lotion.

Our other wellness programs include Tai Chi, an ancient practice proven to reduce pain and improve your mental and physical well-being by reducing stress, increasing balance and flexibility, helping you feel relaxed and improving your overall mind, body and spirit.

We also provide Yoga classes, so for relaxation and some to encourage you to move your body in new ways. You can select the style of Yoga you want to use to help you develop your flexibility, strength and balance.

We also offer a strength and conditioning program and a weight loss program.

Dry Needling 

Dry Needling Services for Effective Pain Relief and Muscle Recovery

At Holsman Physical Therapy, we offer specialized dry needling services as part of our comprehensive approach to pain management and muscle recovery. Our skilled physical therapists utilize this advanced technique to target trigger points and promote healing throughout the body.

What is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a therapeutic technique that involves inserting thin, sterile needles into specific trigger points within muscles, tendons, or connective tissues. Unlike acupuncture, which is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, dry needling focuses on releasing tension, reducing pain, and improving overall function.

How Does Dry Needling Work?

During a dry needling session, our experienced therapists identify trigger points by palpating the affected area. Once located, the thin needles are inserted to stimulate the trigger point, causing a localized twitch response. This response helps relax tight muscles, increase blood flow, and encourage the body's natural healing processes.

Benefits of Dry Needling:

Pain Relief: Dry needling can provide effective relief from chronic pain conditions such as lower back pain, neck pain, and headaches.

Muscle Relaxation: The technique helps release muscle tension and knots, promoting relaxation and improved flexibility.

Enhanced Blood Flow: Increased circulation contributes to better nutrient delivery and waste removal, supporting tissue healing.

Faster Recovery: Dry needling can expedite recovery from injuries and surgeries by promoting tissue regeneration.

Complements Physical Therapy: When integrated into a comprehensive treatment plan, dry needling enhances the effectiveness of physical therapy exercises and techniques.

Conditions Treated with Dry Needling:

Dry needling can be beneficial for a wide range of conditions, including:

Sports Injuries

Muscle Strains


Frozen Shoulder


Plantar Fasciitis

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome


What to Expect During a Dry Needling Session:

Assessment: Our therapist will evaluate your condition and discuss your symptoms to determine if dry needling is appropriate for you.

Needle Insertion: The therapist will gently insert the needles into the targeted trigger points. You may feel a brief sensation or twitch response.

Treatment Duration: A dry needling session typically lasts 15-30 minutes, depending on the number of trigger points being addressed.

Post-Treatment Care: After the session, our therapist may recommend stretches, exercises, or other self-care techniques to maximize the benefits of the treatment.

Is Dry Needling Safe?

Yes, dry needling is considered safe when performed by trained and licensed physical therapists. Our team follows strict hygiene and safety protocols to ensure your well-being throughout the session.
