Trigger Point Massage Therapy
Trigger point massage therapy uses isolated pressure points to deactivate or release spots of tenderness in muscles that often refer to the other areas of the body.
Trigger points often cause muscle pain due to:
- Repetitive injuries
- Poor posture
- Overwork of muscles
Trigger point compression techniques are often performed with thumbs, fingers and elbows to apply direct pressure to the trigger point relieving myofascial pain and softening contracted tissue.
