Trigger Point Therapy

A trigger point is a hyper-irritable spot in a skeletal muscle that is painful to the touch, and when pressed upon, causes referred pain to another area or areas of the body.

The therapist identifies, locates and applies alternating pressure and release to trigger points throughout the body.

Trigger point therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release with active client participation both by breathing deeply into areas of pain and by reporting to the therapist where the specific areas of pain are and when they ease up. Trigger Point Therapy can effectively release constricted areas in muscles, thus alleviating pain in even a single session and helping to manage the pain and stress from long term chronic injuries as well.
