Trigger Point Massage Therapy
There are points on the body know as trigger points which are soft tissues that form to as a protective measure for overworked, strained, or injured muscles. Painful and tight muscles are sure signs that a trigger point has been activated. In the case that a trigger point developed as a result of physical trauma, a chemical imbalance will occur in the body which will result in irritation of the sensory systems.
Trigger points can cause pain at various points of the body, not just at the spot they have formed. The goal of trigger point therapy is to relax these points to calm the chemical imbalance to treat the pain. Toxins will be released from the body and endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, will be produced at a much higher rate. After only one visit the pain may subside significantly.
