What is Trigger Point Massage Therapy?
Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to bring relief to the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. During trigger point therapy, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the focal point and intensity of the discomfort.
Why should I get Trigger Point Massage Therapy?
The body is a connected system and it is often the case that a trigger point is just one end of the problem. Most trigger points refer to pain somewhere else along the nerve pathways so it takes skilled hands to get to the root of the problem, and if one muscle is being problematic then it is almost certain to have an effect on the surrounding muscles.
A trigger point in a muscle keeps the entire muscle under tension. This leads to painful stiffness and complaints such as: neck and shoulder stiffness, back pain, buttock pain, RSI and more.
How does Trigger Point Massage Therapy work?
Trigger point massage therapy involves the applying of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body.
The best method of trigger point therapy is to apply pressure to the trigger points to help break them up so that your body can redistribute and process the accumulated toxins. There may be some pain involved. You may have sore muscles for several days after trigger point therapy; you should drink a lot of water.
However, intensive focused pressure is just one way to treat trigger points, and that style does not ensure the points won’t return. Several other modalities can erase these pesky points and can keep them from returning.
Who is Trigger Point Massage Therapy ideal for?
Trigger Point Therapy is for almost everyone. Muscles that have active trigger points are weaker than normal muscles and are unable to move through their full range of motion. Due to being unable to perform their normal function, other muscles are recruited to perform the activity of the compromised muscle. These secondary muscles can go on to develop trigger points themselves if the original muscle is not treated.
I love Sue! She is the best! Her massage therapy is amazing, very professional, nice office! Very accommodating and friendly service. I would recommend her to anybody who is needing a great massage, she focuses on medical massage as much as muscle-solving deep tissue massages. My back is feeling much better.
