Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on releasing, alleviating, and controlling trigger points in the muscles of the body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur mostly in the belly of the muscle tissue and are found in virtually every muscle group of the body. These ‘knots’ are built up throughout a person’s lifetime due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stresses. They can be the cause of your pain or a symptom of another problem. The most common cause of trigger point misery is simply accumulation over time. Trigger points can mimic the symptoms of other problems such as carpal tunnel, heel spurs, plantar fascitis, migraine headaches, disc problems in the low back or neck, tennis elbow, and quite commonly sciatica. Trigger points cause pain, burning, fatigue, impaired mobility and flexibility, and weakness in the afflicted muscles. Activities, such as exercise and work, can make them worse. You cannot effectively stretch or workout active trigger points on your own. As good a way as any, and better than most methods to alleviate them and inspire healing, is by manual manipulation from a trained and qualified therapist. This will insure satisfying relief and longer lasting results. During a session focused compression, and cross fiber manipulation is applied, to the afflicted muscles through our specialized techniques. The results? Release, relief, alleviation, and control of your trigger point pain and misery. This process can be quite intense at times, yet NEVER painful. The effects can be profoundly transformative.
