Trigger Point Therapy

Relieves Stubborn Pain

The main causes of trigger points are muscle load; acute, sustained or repetitive movements, muscles left in shortened position, structural or posture issues, overload, overworked and or trauma. According to Janet Travel MD, a recognized leading pioneer in diagnosis and treatment of trigger points, "Trigger points are the primary cause of pain roughly 75% of pain or play in virtually every pain problem".

Trigger point therapy is advanced and done directly on skin, through a sheet, or through light clothing. The therapist locates the trigger point (hypersensitive nodule (knot) in a taut band of muscle fibers) and uses direct pressure to the problem area of the muscle, causing release resulting in mobility without pain or stiffness. This is done at the client's tolerance level.

Deep Tissue Massage

technique that physically breaks up scar tissue and knots or adhesions

During the massage, light pressure is applied that gradually intensifies as your muscles and fascia become warmer. Minimal lubrication is applied to glide deeply along the length of your muscles. In some cases, the pressure is applied across the grain of the muscle to release adhesions and align tissue fibers. To achieve this, the therapist may also use their knuckles, elbows, and forearms, in addition to their fingertips and hands.

If at any point during the massage the pressure feels too intense, don't hesitate to communicate with your therapist. After the session, it's normal to feel slightly sore or tender, but this should dissipate quickly.
