Massage + Trigger Points

Massage has numerous benefits to the body but importantly it can release pesky trigger points.

What are trigger points you ask?
It’s when an area of the muscles is extra tense or a point in the muscles that can be tender or hyper-irritable that can cause referral pain to another area to the body, due to muscles over load or injury.

How can massage help?
Massage can help soften up tension and potentially alleviate pain. A trigger point may not always be the main complaint or area of pain but could be the source.

Soft tissue work, especially trigger point work specifically has been practice for many years and has been proven to help with pain management or even eliminate pain all together.
