Dry Needling by Dr Ma

Integrative Dry Needling, Orthopedic Approach™ is a contemporary dry needling therapy developed by Dr Yun-tao Ma (2005, 2010) and based on the works of Dr Janet Travell (1982, 1992), Dr Chan Gunn (1978), clinical evidence, evidence-based research and Dr Ma’s own 40 years of clinical and research experience and neuroscience training.

Due to Dr Ma’s extensive background in neuroscience, pain management and needling practice and research, he has been able both to study and assess the effectiveness of different types of dry needling, such as trigger point dry needling (TDN) – as used by Travel and Simons; intramuscular stimulation manual therapy and the spinal segmental sensitivity (SSS) approach (Dr Gunn’s IMS approach). Dr Ma has been able to synthesize all the different types of dry needling into the unified contemporary system known as Integrative Dry Needling, Orthopedic Approach™.

As a key-speaker Dr. Ma presented his Integrative System at International Symposiums in London, Barcelona, Berlin, Paris, Sao Paulo, Frankfurt, Prague, Washington DC, Thessaloniki; at USA Medical Schools.
