Trigger Point Massage
Trigger point is often referred to as Myotherapy Massage or Pressure Point Massage. It is designed to relieve pain caused by small, constricted points of muscle called trigger points. These types of muscle trigger points often cause referred pain in other areas. For example, a trigger point in the neck may cause pain in the head.
Trigger points are located in a taut band of muscle fibers. The therapist will locate and diffuse the trigger point using finger pressure and releases the muscle.
