Dry Needling

DURATION: 45 MINUTES

Dry needling is a treatment technique whereby a sterile, single-use, fine filament needle (acupuncture needle) is inserted into the muscle to assist with decreasing pain and improving function through the release of myofascial trigger points (knots in muscle).

A myofascial trigger point, also known as a knot in the muscle, is a group of muscle fibres which have shortened when activated but have not been able to lengthen back to a relaxed state after use. A myofascial trigger point develops a sensitive nodule in the muscle. This hypersensitivity occurs as the muscle fibres become so tight that they compress the capillaries and nerves that supply them. As a result, the muscle is unable to move frequently, obtain a fresh blood supply containing oxygen and nutrients, or flush out additional acidic chemicals.

In addition to this nodule, the remainder of the muscle also tightens to compensate. The presence of a myofascial trigger point in a muscle can lead to discomfort with touch, movement and stretching; to decreased joint motion; and even a temporary loss of coordination.

-Also known as myofascial trigger point dry needling, is an alternative technique adapted from acupuncture and it is an effective way of treating chronic pain and discomfort arising from a tense and contacted muscle.

My first visit to Sancti Studio was a great experience. It was easy to book an appointment online. My therapist was Eva and she did a great job of finding out what areas I wanted her to work on and then ...addressed them very well. She has great technique and is very open to feedback if you request more pressure or less pressure (I had deep tissue massage). Overall great experience & I recommend them!

As soon as I entered Sancti Studio, I felt the ambient, relaxing environment having a calming effect on me. I went for a Craniosacral treatment, not knowing what to expect, after a ... few minutes I could feel my anxiety melting away and my overthinking completely stopped. With my eyes closed I saw many colours and images that took me to the deepest sleep I had in a few years. I remember experiencing deep calmness and lightness. What a great experience it was!
