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.

I have been going to Ashley for about a year, as she has helped me work through some chronic tightness/pain in my lower extremities. She has helped me to feel better, more in control of my own wellness, and to have a better understanding of my body. Ashley is the best there is, period. She has a magical ability to locate the source of your pain and work through it. She is knowledgeable and always trying to teach herself new techniques and approaches. And she’s just a very kind, giving, nice and enjoyable person to chat to.
