Trigger Point Massage
Trigger Points are points of irritation in a muscle that may be caused from working out, mechanical, chemical and emotional stress... An area may hurt all the time and may be an "active trigger point" -or it may react to a specific movement. Trigger points usually have a referral pattern duplicating the symptom. Pressing into the trigger point can effectively relieve the pattern by creating a new message of stress to the nervous system changing the pattern of stress to one that doesn't cause pain.
