Trigger Point Therapy

with Christine Tacoma, LMT

What Is Trigger Point Therapy?

The goal of trigger point therapy is to improve blood circulation to the area and release the surrounding tissues of tension via stretching the muscles fibers and using direct pressure.

What are trigger points?

Trigger points are small contraction knots deep in muscles that have the ability to refer pain or sensation.

Trigger points affect muscles by keeping them tight and weak. 

Doctors who treat trigger points have found that they are the cause of pain 75% of the time and are involved in every pain problem. 

Trigger points can refer pain to different areas of the body, while being actively worked on, or not.

What can I expect during a session?

Trigger point therapy can be painful while pressure is applied in a tender area, but the temporary pain can help relieve recurring pain and muscle spasms. You may not always feel immediate relief, but should feel the improvement the next day.
