Myofascial & Trigger Point therapy

trigger point massage

Fascia is the connective tissue that covers all muscles and organs, thereby forming an 'internal sweater' of the body. When fascia becomes tight or twisted, it can cement posture into a distorted position and contribute to widespread aching as well as fatigue, localized discomfort, trigger point pain referral patterns and dysfunction of nerves and organs. Myofascial bodywork is used to restore structural integrity, relieve pain, release emotional trauma trapped in muscle memory, restore function and improve range of motion.
Sports Massage isn't just for athletes. The main purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the bodyÍs soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Sports Massage can also include pre-event, post-event and maintenance techniques that promote greater athletic endurance and performance lessen chances of injury and reduce recovery time for athletes and for those with an active lifestyle.
