Trigger Point Massage

Trigger points are areas of hyperirritability in the soft tissue structure of your body. These can be acute sources of pain or completely unnoticed until pressure is applied. Trigger points are manifested as small contraction knots in the muscles, that control the state of contraction and active ones may cause muscle spasm and referred pain.

Treating these trigger points is done by a combination of manipulation and stretching. A firm pressure is applied by the practitioner, who is locates both the specific points of the pain, and the areas causing the pain.
