What Are Trigger Point Massages?
A trigger point massage focuses on “trigger points” in muscles. These are tight areas, knots within your muscle tissue (fascia) that can cause pain in other parts of the body. For instance a trigger point in your back may cause you pain in your neck, which in turn, may cause pain in other areas of the body. Trigger point massages focus, specifically, on these trigger points and is aimed at releasing knots, tension, and pressure. The results and benefits of this type of massage are that the client can alleviate the pain in these tight spots in the muscles. After just one treatment one can expect a decrease in pain, and ongoing trigger point massage therapy can help clients naturally manage chronic injury pain and stress.
Trigger point massages reach deep within the muscle tissue, fascia, joints, and ligaments to remove knots, so the massage therapy may be uncomfortable or even painful at times. Tell your masseuse about acute pain you experience during trigger point massages and inform the massage therapist ahead of time about recent surgeries, health issues, or injuries. Trigger point massages may cause soreness or result in stiffness that lasts for a day or two. Contact your massage therapist if pain or soreness becomes chronic or lasts for more than a few days.
