Trigger point massage focuses on releasing trigger points, which are small, tight knots that develop in muscles that may cause pain in other areas of the body (an effect known as “referral pain”).

Trigger point massage works by putting pressure on the tight area until the muscle knot softens and releases. Trigger point massage addresses surface muscles, connective tissues, and deeper ligaments. This treatment technique is similar to acupressure.

What is Trigger Point Massage?

Trigger points are sensitive areas of tight muscle fibers that form in your muscles after injuries or overuse. They can sprout up all over your body (but are often found on your back). Areas of the muscle tighten, which is why they are also referred to as muscle knots. Applying pressure by rubbing and pressing on these areas can release muscle tension and knock out the stubborn knots.

During a trigger point massage, your licensed massage therapist will seek out muscle knots and aim to loosen those muscles. They will use broad strokes combined with strong, deep pressure to relax and release tightness. The process is repeated several times until your massage therapist feels as though the tension is gone.

Your licensed massage therapist will be aware of areas where trigger points are commonly located. Be sure to let them know where you are experiencing pain during the initial consultation.

Benefits of Trigger Point Massage

Trigger point massage can release the tightest areas of your body, helping to improve range of motion, posture, and alignment while relieving pain. Your certified trigger point massage therapist will focus on the locations connected to where the pain occurs to provide relief. Trigger point massage therapy can often help people suffering from headaches, neck and shoulder tension, and chronic back pain.

Reflexology massage involves applying pressure to certain points on the hands and feet. These points are believed to correspond with organs and systems of the body. Certified Reflexologists will target these points for therapeutic pain relief and relaxation throughout your body.

Reflexology massage may be incorporated into Swedish and deep tissue massage sessions.

What is Reflexology Massage?

Reflexology is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that relies on the idea of qi, which means life force or vital energy. Qi flows throughout the body, but stress can block qi and lead to an imbalance. Reflexology rests on the belief that touch prompts energy to flow throughout the body to areas in need of healing.

There are numerous modern theories about how reflexology massage works, but the general idea is that areas of the feet, hands, and ears correspond to other parts of the body. Reflexology massage may stimulate nerve endings and the central nervous system, which can then impact how you feel.

Certified Reflexologists use charts to guide them as they apply pressure to specific points.

Benefits of Reflexology Massage

Reflexology massage can reduce stress and anxiety, and it can improve your mood and general well-being. Reflexology massage may provide a boost to the immune system, improve digestion, clear up sinus issues, and ease arthritis pain.

What is Hot Stone Massage?

The stones may be placed along your spine, on your chest, palms, face, or on other areas. Your massage therapist may also hold the hot stones while massaging your body.
