Myofascial Release Massage is beneficial because it helps relax contracted muscles, increases circulation and lymphatic drainage, and stimulates the stretch reflex of muscles and overlying fascia. There are many conditions that this technique can be beneficial in the massage session. This technique can be used with any other massage technique such as Swedish Massage, Therapeutic Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Prenatal Massage and Sports Massage.
Trigger Point Therapy: no special pricing, techniques incorporated in massage as needed
Trigger Point Therapy focuses on a specific area within the muscle called a "trigger point." The trigger point can be identified by a feeling of tightness and a "knotted' feeling within the tissue and muscle. The trigger point causes pain and discomfort in another area of the body, this is called referred pain. For example, someone might have a trigger point in their shoulder which causes pain in their neck, or head. The client will work actively in breathing deeply and communicating with the therapist about where they feel the most discomfort in locating the trigger point as well as their threshold and pain tolerance in releasing the trigger point. The purpose and benefit of releasing trigger points is to release constricted areas in the muscles, therefore, alleviating pain. Many times relief can be felt and noticed in one session, however it may also take numerous sessions and numerous trigger point releases to completely alleviate the pain. This technique can be used along with a Therapeutic Massage or a Deep Tissue Massage or individually as a session for Trigger Point Release. This technique will be used after the Therapist communicates with the client about the Trigger Points and the benefit of using Trigger Point Release Therapy.
