What is Trigger Point Therapy?
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. By dissolving these points it allows us to get to the root cause and effectivly work your trigger points and knots so you can continue living. Other examples of pathologies that have seen relief are:
- Chronic pain
- Rotator Cuff Issues
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Carpal Tunnel
- and more
Ashely from Tranquil Therapy is awesome! I am fairly active and I also have a tendency to injure myself (always minor, but irritating nonetheless). Ashley has been able to help with my symptoms, as well as give me information and stretches/exercises to prevent further injuries, as well as self-massages to do when I do (inevitably) injure myself again. There have been several times when I was on my way to our session that I could barely move my arm without wincing. But after our session, I was able to move freely (although cautiously) with little to no pain. It is apparent that Ashley takes pride in her work and truly cares about her client’s wellbeing.
