Unlock Your Knots With Trigger Point Massage Therapy
Each body is a matrix of intertwined muscles, joints, and tendons. Continuous movement like running, lifting weights, or even long walks can irritate delicate tissue. When tissues remain in a contracted state for long periods of time, they harden, creating small, painful nodules called “trigger points,” which often leads to chronic pain.
Fortunately, there’s a treatment for this condition, known as “Trigger Point Therapy,” and it’s one of the many modalities offered at Elements Massage. During a trigger point session, our therapists pulsate, or press rhythmically on a specific area of the body to locate the nodules, then gently apply pressure to release the irritated tissue. Trigger point therapy reduces pain, relieves tension, and increases range of motion. It not only unlocks tension in one part of the body, it’s a great way to increase overall circulation and help muscles regain their full function.
Why is trigger point therapy right for me?
Simple daily activities, like driving for long periods of time, sitting at a desk all day, or even a regular exercise routine may cause strain and create muscle tension. This means everyone can benefit from trigger point therapy!
There’s a common misconception that people who receive this type of massage must be able to endure high levels of pain and soreness to notice any significant benefits. Trigger point therapy isn’t meant to be painful — it’s designed to reduce discomfort and heal injuries.
An effective and easy way to enjoy a trigger point massage therapy session is to combine it with other types of massage, like Swedish or deep tissue treatments. This way, clients can relax and experience all of the rehabilitative benefits trigger point therapy provides.
