Do you suffer from unexplained chronic pain? Are you forced into taking harmful painkilling tablets, even though you know that they do more harm than good? Has your doctor recommended some extreme form of treatment (like surgery) to cure your condition? Well, neither do you have to resort to surgery nor do you need to take the slow poison that goes by the name of pain killers – because there is a better, cheaper way – Trigger Point Massage Therapy. This form of massage is highly beneficial even for those who do not suffer from pain in a particular area but are fatigued and stressed in general.
What Exactly is Trigger Point Massage Therapy?
First of all, let us understand what trigger points are. In simple language, a trigger point is a tight nodule or area (usually palpable) within the muscle tissue. This area is responsible for causing pain in some other part of the body. For example: A trigger point in the back may cause pain in the neck or shoulder. This painful area can act as a secondary trigger point and cause pain in the head or arm. The pain varies from point to point and person to person: it can range between sharp and intense to dull.
A Trigger point massage is specifically designed to remove the source of the chronic pain. It involves a series of pressure and release cycles. As opposed to a conventional massage wherein the recipient is passive, a trigger point massage requires active participation of the client in the form of deep breathing and vocal guidance for identification of trigger points. The best part about such a massage is that you will feel the difference after just one session. Sure, multiple sessions may be required for long-term relief but most people do report a vast improvement after just one sitting.
What are the benefits of a trigger point massage?
There are numerous benefits: improved blood circulation, relaxation, better mood, alleviation of chronic pain. Trigger point massage therapy is must less expensive and non-intrusive compared to conventional treatments such as surgery.
