Massage aims to produce three types of effect on the body systems: physical, physiological and psychological.
Trigger Point: Trigger point massage is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. Trigger points are painful when pressed on, cause a shortening of the muscle fibers, and have a special property called referred pain. Referred pain means that a trigger point in one muscle can create pain in another area. In this type of massage the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort. The results and benefits of trigger point massage are releasing constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain.
