Trigger Point Therapy is a massage technique that helps relieve the sufferer from (referred) pain and ease the trigger point causing it. A trigger point is when a fascicle gets “stuck” to another, preventing movement and causing pain. Your muscles are built very much like an orange having tiny “pockets” of muscle tissue that glide against each other to create movement in the entire muscle. Sometime they get stuck together and there are many different reasons why that happens.
What can I expect in my Trigger Point Therapy session?
Trigger Point Therapy finds painful points and presses with sustained pressure while also moving in small circles. As this is going on your therapist will ask you for feedback, such as, has pain gone down and where do you feel it now. This and more will be explained to you at your appointment, this massage should not hurt! Please let your therapist know if it is painful, although it will be a little uncomfortable it is not painful. This massage is often combined with Myofascial Release for a more relaxing and therapeutic treatment.
What are the benefits of Trigger Point Therapy?
Trigger Points occur in various areas of the body referring pain to other areas such as headaches being trigger points in the neck and shoulders.

Ashley has been an integral part of my healing process since a car accident that resulted in a long thoracic nerve injury put me out of work for 6 months solid (3 on bed rest). When I did get back to work my neck and shoulder pain was often more than I could bear and I had frequent migraines. Ashley worked with me through all of my stages of recovery. She is always very professional and gives great advice on stretches and home care techniques to keep me going between visits. I am now often feeling like I’m completely back on my feet. I am quite sure that her healing energy and know how made a big difference for my recovery.In fact, I own a house cleaning service and the effectiveness of her treatment inspired me to share these techniques with my staff. Ashley came to one of our team meetings prepared with a self care workshop for our team. She even created a YouTube channel with exercises and stretches designed to help our specific needs based off of our typical movements throughout the day. She is very thorough in her explanation of how and why we get out of whack and what we can do to reverse that process. Now, not only does my body work better, so does my business. I couldn’t be more thrilled to have her to thank for so much support in that.
