Deep Tissue -Trigger Point Massage

Deep Tissue and Trigger Point Massage beginning at $70/hr., $95 for 1 1/2 hr.

The most effective way to treat trigger points is through deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy. By applying pressure to specific spots in a muscle, we can release the trigger point and relieve the associated pain and improve range of motion.

A trigger point is a hyper irritable spot in a tight band of a skeletal muscle or in the muscle’s fascia, that is painful on compression and that can give rise to characteristic referred pain.

Trigger points can cause severe pain and restrict your range of motion. While pain is a common sensation caused by trigger points, other sensations can be elicited as well. Tingling, numbness, thermal sensations (hot/cold), and achiness.

Trigger points can cause severe pain and have been implicated in the following conditions:

  • headaches,
  • neck and jaw pain,
  • low back pain,
  • carpal tunnel symptoms,
  • joint pain,
  • earaches,
  • dizziness,
  • heart burn,
  • sinus pain,
  • chronic fatigue syndrome,
  • depression, and
  • fibromyalgia.

It is believed that Trigger Points are created by injuries, muscle strain and emotional stress. Sometimes trigger points can lie dormant and don’t cause pain until they are activated by physical or emotional stress.

Letting trigger points go untreated can cause further problems down the line. There are trigger point clusters that can aggravate each other and cause additional pain and discomfort. In addition, trigger points in the back can keep the muscles along the spine so tight, that they pull the spine out of alignment.
