Trigger Point Massage

 Trigger Point Massage is used as a pain-relief technique to alleviate muscle spasms and cramping.

Combined positioning and specific finger or thumb pressure into "trigger/tender point" in muscle and connective tissue reduces hypersensitiviy, muscle spasm and referred pain patterns that characterise the point.

Trigger points are formed in muscles which have been damaged and left untreated resulting in re-occuring spasms that worsen painfully when aggrevated. Such trigger/tender points lead to restricted and painful movement of entire body regions.

The main aim of this treatment is to reduce spasm and inducing new blood flow into the affected area.

Spasms physically reduce blood flow to the trigger point area (ischaemia), which reduces oxygen supplies to the tissues and thus increases the spasm.
