What is Trigger Point Therapy?
A trigger point, also known as a ‘muscle knot’, is a tight area within muscle tissue that pulls on tendons and ligaments causing acute pain and muscle twitches. Trigger points usually build up over time and are caused by a variety of stressors including: muscle overload, mental or physical distress, trauma, infection or disease, and other trigger points.
The Trigger point massage therapy technique alleviates pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. These cycles – sometimes applied by elbow for more pressure – remove lactic acid build up allowing the muscles to detoxify and relax. For best results you may be asked to breathe deeply during your session to encourage blood flow and toxin release.
The results and benefits of trigger point massage only increase with regular care. You will definitely notice a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment, but additional sessions are recommended for long-term relief from chronic conditions. Please feel free to communicate any ailments or pre-existing conditions to your professional therapist for a more personalized experience.
*Due to the tender nature of the trigger points you may feel some slight discomfort during the massage; please alert your professional therapists to any pain that may seem out of the ordinary or too intense.
