Trigger Point Therapy
When a tight area of muscle causes pain in other parts of the body, trigger point therapy can help.
This type of massage is designed to identify the source of the pain, isolated it, and help to relieve pain through multiple cycles of pressure and release on the “trigger point.” GreatLIFE’s Trigger Point Therapy is a form of massage that applies direct pressure to specified points on tender muscle tissue to bring about reduction in muscle tension and pain relief.
Each muscle has potential trigger points that become activated by muscle overuse, inflammation, trauma, electrolyte imbalances, infections and nerve pain. These trigger points can cause pain over the muscle affected or direct pain that can be felt in other areas of the body. Other trigger points are only felt when the therapist directly addresses the muscle.
