Trigger Point Therapy

BOOK THIS TREATMENT

Trigger point therapy is often used to treat chronic pain conditions, with many patients reporting substantial improvement in their conditions. A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. This therapy is done by putting pressure on specific points in the muscle belly which result in the muscle letting go and relaxing. This technique is commonly used during a deep tissue massage to release tight and/or painful muscles. Those who might be able to benefit the most include anyone coping with a chronic pain disorder like fibromyalgia. Back pain patients, arthritis patients, and anyone recovering from an injury or accident may benefit immensely from trigger point massage. Trigger point massage can often effectively treat tendinitis and it can also be of benefit to those suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome. Migraine sufferers have benefited from trigger point therapy, and it’s also used successfully in the treatment of athletic injuries and athletic-related muscle stiffness and tension. Other benefits of trigger point massage include:

  • Increased range of motion
  • Decreased muscle stiffness and tension
  • Reduction in headaches
  • Improved flexibility
  • Improved circulation
  • Fewer muscle spasms
