A trigger point is a tense area in muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. Trigger point therapy is specifically designed to relieve the tension in these spots and thus alleviate the source of the referred pain.
In trigger point therapy massage, the client actively participates through deep breathing and identifying the location and intensity of discomfort of the pain.
Trigger point therapy includes not only massage, but a combination therapeutic exercises, cooling spray, moist heat, and addressing the causes of trigger point formation. Since as much as 93% of pain people suffer from has a myofascial component, it is likely that you will have a decrease in pain and an increase in motion once treatment has started. Receiving massage with this therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries.
