What is Trigger Point Massage Therapy?

A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain locally and in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may reduce referral pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head or headache. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache. This is only one path the muscular dysfunction may take.

Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage for trigger point therapy, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing and by identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.

The results and benefits of trigger point massage are releasing constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain and muscular dysfunction. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and muscular dysfunction from chronic injuries.
