Trigger Point Therapy

Posted By: Elements Therapeutic Massage on 10/24/2012

Would you like to know how your massage therapist knows exactly where your knots are?

Trigger Point Therapy

"If you've ever received professional trigger point therapy, you may be baffled at how it works. A therapist explores painful areas on the body with fingertips, searching for sore, tender trigger points. Once the trigger point is found, the therapist applies pressure with fingers, knuckles, or an elbow for about seven seconds.

At first, clients may feel pain, but welcome relief quickly follows. Effective on chronic or occasional pain in any part of the body, learning to practice trigger point therapy on yourself can supplement professional sessions and provide interim relief."
