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
I have been seeing Ashley for about six months for regular massages due to chronic neck and shoulder tension resulting in frequent headaches. I have seen so much improvement during this time and leave every session feeling so, so much better. Ashley is extremely talented, friendly, and serious about helping people. She has offered many suggestions for helpful stretches and other techniques that I can do at home to ease my tension between sessions. If you’re someone who works for hours at a computer, spends long days on your feet, or travels a lot (or, in my case, all three), you will likely benefit greatly from regular massage by a skilled therapist like Ashley.
