Trigger points can often be misleading. This is because although a person may feel pain in a certain part of their body, the pain is actually coming from a tight area within the muscle tissue in another part of the body. For example, the pain may be in your back, but the source of the pain is in the neck area. Overuse or injury of muscles can create these trigger points in the body.
A trigger point massage is intended to loosen up the area that is causing the pain by applying and releasing pressure. The person receiving the massage participates by breathing deeply and identifies the location of the discomfort.
This massage gets rid of the toxins in the muscles and releases energizing endorphins. Just one treatment can cause a significant decline in the amount of pain.
