Trigger Point Massage Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy, Close to home.

Trigger points are areas of soft tissue in the body characterized by local pain, tightness, and tenderness. Trigger points can often refer pain to other parts of the body. For example, a patient who is carrying a lot of stress in their shoulders may have tension headaches. This is because that stress often results in tense muscle and trigger points in the upper trapezius muscles (around the shoulders) which is known to refer pain up into the temporal regions, above the eyes and sometimes even into the jaw.

Trigger-point therapy seeks first to identify trigger points, and then apply steady, appropriate pressure to the point to “release” it. This is usually followed by massage to the surrounding area to help treat the cause of the trigger point. Clients are encouraged to drink a lot of water following a trigger-point therapy session to flush out any toxins released when the trigger point is released.

Trigger points can be found in just about any muscle in the body. A trained massage therapist can pin point these areas and treat them appropriately.
