Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger point therapy is a bodywork technique that involves the applying of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body.

Many people are not sure what trigger points are, until we point them out!

Unexplained sharp pains can radiate out from a very precise point and cause significant discomfort. These pains can be in multiple places so everyday activities can be turn into a string of painful event, most of which you cannot explain and happen so often that calling for sympathy soon becomes a lost cause. Well we are listening here at the Superior Massage therapy Centre. We know exactly what causes those sharp pains and have effective treatments to get rid of them. Trigger points are often responsible for these pains and the trigger point therapy we offer will systematically address the roots of these pain triggers and resolve the muscle tissues to prevent the pain from continuing.

There are two basic types of trigger points: active and latent

Active trigger points cause muscular pain and will refer pain and tenderness to another area of the body when pressure is applied. Latent trigger points only exhibit pain when compressed; they do not refer pain to other areas of the body. Latent trigger points are believed to be one of the causes of stiff joints and restricted range of motion of old age.

Some important facts you should know about trigger points:
  • Trigger points differ from acupressure points. Acupressure points are concentrations of energy or blockages of the body’s energy pathways.
  • Trigger points are physical phenomena that can be felt by touch. The pain caused by trigger points may be the biggest cause of disability and loss of time in the workplace.
  • Trigger Point Therapy is utilized in every massage session.
