    Thank you for the super treatment and friendly service. I injured my shoulder and neck from excessive workout - extremely gladful that Ika, my therapist, was able to sort out the pain after 2 treatments. PhysioActive Dharmawangsa is highly recommended for anyone recovering from sporting injuries or simply want to look after their physique. https://goo.gl/maps/fj3CsPh7EgaJ6d3c7

    physioactive is not only a physiology center that strives to assist those in pain, but it is a life changing experience that will never make you reconsider your decision. for the last eight years ive struggled with backaches and neck/shoulder aches. from chiropractors to essential oils, nothing could fix it. there were temporary solutions that numbed the pain, however the pain would bounce back stronger after twenty minutes. i never believed in physiotherapy. i thought it was for old people and it was useless, time consuming and not worth the money. After 1 session at physioactive jakarta, i knew i was 80% better. the workers there are kind and supportive and truly care about your wellbeing & health. they want you to be disciplined for YOU and your health. i will stop flying to singapore for my physiological check ups because i found a perfect one here: physioactive. https://goo.gl/maps/saiTKCsvbguRsoJy5

    I think it is one of the best physiotherapy in Jakarta (at least better than Physio M*****l C****c). Going there for 2x already but can feel the difference from day 1. The dry needle technique from Bu Ika is really help me to reduce my neck stiffness. Still need going there to relieve pain on my arms. She is able to find out the problem although in my case, there might be more than one root causes but still better than not finding anything. Love how they apply the technology as part of their service. We can see our exercises that need to be done on the app. It is really helpful (although it needs some improvement). The receiptionist is wonderful too. Meet 2 different people and both are great at service. Love on how they treat us and offer us a drink https://goo.gl/maps/J6uxowjwGSxupbBD8

    This place is amazing! I was struggling with neck pain for years and after seeing Mrs Ika just a couple times she completely fixed it, She made my recovery a priority with frequent follow-ups and useful home exercises. She also showed me how to help prevent the same injuries occurring in the future. Everyone there is super lovely as well and make booking appointments so easy - couldn't recommend this place enough! Definitely i had a great experience. https://goo.gl/maps/JiBe1cEq4JjRuc5Y6

    It was my first time at PhyisioActive Physiotherapy Indonesia and I'm glad I chose them. In my view I have a complex condition. Timothy was awesome. He knew what to do and gave me good advice. He also does dry needling, which did wonders for my condition. They are professional. The staff is excellent - friendly and have great interpersonal skills, which is extremely important. I felt comfortable and I am satisfied with the service I received. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for Physiotherapy. https://goo.gl/maps/uBog96rDrTbKkq1N9

    I was suffering from shoulder pain and tightness, as well as reduced shoulder mobility for several months. Despite seeing several physiotherapists, the issue persisted. Brigitte's treatment of dry needling, sports massage and mobilisation has completely eradicated the symptoms within weeks. Brigitte thoroughly treated my injury and provided advice and support beyond it.

    I've had muscle pain/stiffness on my left trapeze to middle back for quite a long time. I tried acupuncture, chiropractic, chinese massage, but no result so far. The dry needle technique that PhysioActive offers caught my attention and decided to give it a try. They twitched the targeted muscle to release tensions and it doesn't hurt. The next day after the treatment, I could feel great relief on the treated site. A shout out for my cool physiotherapist, Timothy. He would always listen attentively and take really good care of my problems 🙂 https://g.co/kgs/H171yC

    The best physio in town i'v ever met, the staff are really hv like an impeccable manners and helpful. They have 3 phisyo and 2 trainer (cmiiw). Although They hv US and several macchine for therapy, treatment mostly use physical training and massage / releasing muscle. I'm patient with Hnp grade 1 and several muscle injuries and handled by mrs. Ika, a senior physio. Actually I already tried several different physio place, but mrs ika is the best, I thought she has a magical hand, she release my very sore muscle with minimum pain, but maximum result. After 5 met I felt really far better. They also give exercise by an app and you can make free consultation on the app. Mrs ika also allow me reach her by Whatsapp for further consultation. Even I still not injury free now, but i know visiting physio active is a right choices! https://goo.gl/maps/q2MbgncFpseLLegy6

    Highly recommend this place! I suffered with scoliosis and a lot of back pain and just after a few sessions, Ms. Ika has managed to fix my body posture and relieve my back pain. The home exercises she assigned are very helpful too! Everyone here is so kind and lovely, and the place has great hospitality and service overall. Really enjoyed my experience here. Thank you! https://goo.gl/maps/6rBYjNmzgZHBienC6

    I totally recommend this place for any kind of physiotherapy needed. The place is super clean and all the staff are very professional. My therapies were done always on time. Ibu Ika, treated me with tennis elbow pain. I went to many places before and did not see any results. I have been treated by her for a couple of session and i am almost 100% pain free. She is cordial, professional and sweet. Dont hesitate to get an appointment if you are looking into this place services. https://goo.gl/maps/KdKxMa79TEia6wMu9

Dry Needling

If you suffer from chronic pain syndrome, multiple sclerosis, or fibromyalgia, dry needling may be able to afford you relief. The technique can be incredibly effective for soothing chronically sore muscles and pain caused by contracted knots in your muscles and connective tissue. Those patients with trigger point pain can particularly benefit from dry needling.

The Expert PhysioActive Approach

After consulting with you about your symptoms and areas of pain, one of our trained, expert therapists will insert sterile needles just under the skin at your trigger points – areas of muscle tenderness that develop from injury or overuse. The treated muscle will twitch in response to the needle. This is actually a spinal reflex and helps to break the pain cycle.

While most patients don’t even notice when the needle is inserted, you may feel some slight pain. Side effects from dry needling are generally nonexistent to mild and may include soreness and bruising. Applying dry heat to the site of the needling often relieves any lingering soreness. Of course, please communicate any issues to our staff and we will be happy to help you.

Dry needling is very safe when performed by a professional, trained therapist like our staff at PhysioActive.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Isn’t dry needling just acupuncture by a different name?

    No. Acupuncture is part of traditional Chinese medicine, whereas dry needling is evidence-based Western medicine. Dry needling does not rely on chi or “energy flow.”

  • Is there risk of infection from another patient?

    No, the needles used in your dry needling treatment are completely sterile.

  • How deeply is the needle inserted?

    The needle is inserted to the layer of the muscle/connective tissue.

  • How long will it take to see results?

    Many patients feel better a few days after a single session. For more severe problems, several sessions may be needed.

  • Will the needles cause scarring or bruising?

    The needle is never inserted deep enough to strike an organ. Furthermore, all our therapists have undergone intensive training in human anatomy and physiology and make patient safety their top priority.

  • How does my therapist avoid puncturing vital structures?

    The skin might be a little irritated after treatment. On the rare occasion, there will be a small bruise. These will heal and disappear in time.
