Trigger Point Therapy | Targeted Relief for Sharp Muscle Pain
At Compassion Massage, we’re well aware of those regular sensations of sharp, nagging pain that our clients experience. These particular sensations, which radiate throughout specific areas in the muscle tissue, are known as trigger points. But you may recognize them more as sensitive muscle “knots.” If you have knots of pain throughout your body, then it’s time to consider trigger point therapy from Compassion Massage.
The Science Behind Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point therapy is a unique form of massage when it comes to treating the muscles. Your massage therapist is able to provide the relief you’re looking for by focusing on the muscle knots themselves. During the session, your therapist will apply pressure to the trigger points, based on your comfort, eventually releasing the muscle knots and lessening the sensation.
Afterward, the newly unknotted muscle tissue will need to be in a constant state of motion. This is where your massage therapist will implement stretches, hands-on contact, and postural retraining exercises. These exercises will help improve your posture, all while alleviating the load placed upon the affected muscle groups. Providing strength stabilization in the affected areas will help prevent future discomfort, all while stopping further muscle knots from forming.
Experience Long-Lasting Results
Compassion Massage’s trigger point therapy services can provide relief to most clients as early as the first session. For others, several treatments may be necessary, depending on how long it may take for trigger points to release. Soreness is known to take occur two days after having a TPT session done. After this period, however, you can expect your muscles to operate more smoothly, without the interference of trigger point pain.
