Trigger Point Massage Therapy

Trigger Point Massage

Trigger point massage therapy focuses on releasing trigger points, which are areas of tight muscle fibers that can cause pain and discomfort. Its origins can be traced back to the work of Dr. Janet Travell, who was a physician to President John F. Kennedy.

Dr. Travell developed the concept of trigger points and their referral patterns, which are areas of pain that can be felt in other parts of the body. Today it is widely used to treat a variety of conditions, including headaches, back pain, and fibromyalgia.

The benefits of trigger point massage therapy are numerous. It can help to relieve pain and tension in the muscles, improve circulation, and increase range of motion. It can also help to reduce stress and anxiety, and promote relaxation. During a trigger point massage therapy session, the therapist will use deep pressure and stretching techniques to release the trigger points and alleviate pain and discomfort.

Trigger point massage therapy is typically performed on a massage table, with the client lying face down or face up. The therapist will apply pressure to the trigger points using their hands, fingers, and elbows. They may also use stretching and other techniques to release tension in the muscles.

The pressure applied during this therapy session can be intense, but it should never be painful. Clients may feel uncomfortable for periods of time during the session. This is normal.

The therapist will work to release trigger points, reducing pain and tension in the muscles. This should ease the discomfort. Other massage techniques are often used in conjunction with this therapy such as Hot Stone therapy at the end of the massage session.
