Trigger Point Release - to release those stubborn muscular knots.
Trigger points are specific spots in muscle tissue that can feel like a knot in the muscle fibres. They are usually very tender and sensitive to touch, and are usually accompanied by recognised pain referral patterns. If left untreated they can multiply or spread to surrounding muscle tissue and/or give rise to reasonable movement restriction.
Usually the release of trigger points would be performed during either a Deep Tissue or Sports Technique massage as they are found or identified, but it can also be the main focus of your treatment. Depending on the severity and/or number of trigger points identified during your massage, they may not all be able to be released or resolved at 1 appointment.
