Massage therapy uses a variety of techniques including, Trigger Point Therapy and Myofascial Release, to manipulate the connective & soft tissues within the body to improve your body’s overall health. These types of massages can decrease fascial restrictions and help release waste from the muscle and fascial tissue, helping to restore function and movement.
What is Trigger Point Therapy?
Trigger Point Therapy is a compression and release treatment of trigger points, which are hyperirritable spots (aka: muscle knots) that can be felt as nodules or taut band within a muscle. Trigger point pain can be localized, referred pain or present as a local twitch response. Trigger point work can help reduce and eliminate this pain be encouraging muscular tissue to return to its relaxed state.
What is Myofascial Release?
Myofascial treatments work with the superficial and deep layers of fascia, (which is tissue that surrounds our muscles, bones and organs). This treatment releases adhesions by indirect & direct methods, which help the fascial adhesion to “unwind”. This gentle but effective treatment are ideal for Chronic Pain and Postural Dysfunctions.
