Dry-Needling is very effective
Peter put pressure on my jaw muscle, at the exact place where I had head and neck pain. Thanks to the advices, exercises, massage of the jaw muscles and the dry needling, I do much better now. The complaints of headache and neck pain is almost never there anymore.
Much less pain!
After years of struggling with pain and several doctor visits later, I met Peter from OFCN. After a few treatments my pain started to get a lot less!
Finally got rid of the toothache
After many years of misunderstood toothache, my toothache has decreased al lot due to the treatment at OFCN. I can finale eat on both sides again! Dry needling is not pleasant, but it was very effective for me.

Fit throughout the day
After a workday I often suffered from the feeling of a tired neck and head. I came to Peter on the advice of my dental hygienist. After he gave me tips and tricks and a couple of treatments, I don’t suffer at the end of the day anymore.

No more headaches
At the point my regular headache started to bother me at work, I mentioned it to my dentist. She referred me to Peter. He touched a muscle in my neck and the headache was immediately triggered. After a few treatments I already noticed that the headache was less severe.
Mr. van der Meulen
During the examination by Peter it became clear to me that I was in the right place. He pressed on muscles that caused my toothache, jaw pain and headache. One year after the last treatment I am still symptom free. I never thought this would be possible for me.
