When muscles are stressed or injured, trigger or pressure points are formed. They might show up as sharp, intense spasms, or as a dull generalised ache. Trigger points can also restrict blood flow or obstruct nerve signals and may also cause a shortening of the muscle fibers. Either way, they can be really painful.
These spots or knots in your muscles are sore and sensitive when pressure is applied and can produce pain in a different parts of your body. A trigger point massage helps work out those knots and reduces the pain associated with them.
Pressure points massage therapy is about identifying the area of your pain and applying the remedy that will help release and relieve your pain.
Trigger points massages involve applying accurate pressure to these points, which can be uncomfortable or painful at first. Your therapist will talk to you through the session and advise you on what to expect. It is best to consult a professional therapist who can ascertain what kind of treatment is most suitable for you.
