A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body.
For example, a trigger point in your back may produce what is called referral pain in your neck. Your neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in your head, pain that may be either sharp or a dull ache.
Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of your pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release, and your Essential Thyme therapist is trained to quickly find and act upon these trigger points.
The result? Constricted areas in your muscles are released and many people can experience significant relief after just one treatment.
In addition, receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage the pain and stress experienced from chronic injuries.
Trigger point release can be incorporated into any other Essential Thyme massage therapies.
