Trigger Point Massage is a style of therapeutic full body massage and focuses on stimulating and releasing “trigger points” in the body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These “knots” are built up throughout a person’s life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress.
Does Trigger Point Massage hurt?
During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of massage techniques in order to release the trigger points. This process can be painful at times yet the effects are lasting and profound. Trigger points refer pain to other areas of the body. People less experienced in receiving massage do not realize that massaging only the areas where pain is felt, will not always address the cause of the pain and many times trigger points are the cause.
While receiving this type of massage, it is helpful to breathe deeply through your nose. This will help to release the trigger point.
This type of bodywork is a very beneficial form of massage therapy. It will address chronic body pain issues and provide relief from pain. It is not recommended for individuals who prefer relaxation and light pressure styles of massage.
