|TRIGGER POINT MASSAGE|
A trigger point is believed to be a localized spasm or knot in the muscle fiber that may cause pain to be referred to other, more distant parts of the body. Trigger Points are what many of us think of as “knots” the swollen achy cables of muscle that produce pain. Healthy muscle tissue is pliable and soft and underlying bony structures can be easily felt. A dysfunctional muscle by contrast has remained shortened and with time becomes ropy and tough to palpate, underlying bones may be difficult to distinguish.
