Trigger Point Release & Massage

Have your muscles been feeling tense and tight lately, we have the solution for you and it is called trigger point release.

What is Trigger Point Release?

Trigger point release is a technique used to detects and release ‘tight spots’ (knots) in the skeletal muscles.

It can also be referred to as myofascial trigger point therapy or neuromuscular therapy,

What are Trigger Points?

Trigger points are areas in the muscle that are painful when compressed. They are also known as “the spot” .

Trigger points usually result from injury to the muscle but can also be caused by poor posture and overuse (or under-use) of a muscle. They can cause intense pain either where they are located or in another area (referred pain).

How does Trigger Point Release Work?

During a remedial session, the practitioner will palpate your muscle and try to detect the tight spots in it. After locating the tight spot, the practitioner will then apply light comfortable pressure to the spot and surrounding area.

This pressure can increase or decrease appropriate to the issue at hand and your comfort levels.  It’s this pressure that speeds up recovery and corrects the imbalances you might have in your muscle. The pressure does this by increasing blood flow to the area and triggering the body to release anti-inflammatory chemicals.

  • Muscle injury
