A trigger point, commonly known as a "trigger site" or "muscle knot," is a highly sensitive area in the body. Typically found within a specific muscle group, stimulating a trigger point can lead to radiating pain in other parts of the body. This type of pain is a prevalent muscular issue and can be quite intense. Trigger points may manifest visibly as knots or tight bands of muscle fibers. Despite the temporary discomfort experienced during Trigger Point Therapy, guests often recognize the enduring advantages of the treatment. Considering that untreated trigger points can result in heightened future pain, the long-term benefits of the therapy outweigh the transient discomfort associated with Trigger Point Therapy.
One notable benefit of Trigger Point Therapy, in contrast to other pain management massage techniques, is its precision in targeting and addressing specific points on the body.
Trigger points commonly manifest in areas like the shoulders, back, or hips. Depending on the specific location of a guest's trigger points, the Massage Therapist will ensure the guest is comfortably positioned for convenient access to the targeted area. The therapist will then systematically examine the body to pinpoint the exact location of the trigger point. Once identified, various finger techniques with different pressures will be applied to and around the trigger points to alleviate the knot. The direct pressure involved in this process may cause discomfort. Eliminating an entire trigger point may require multiple sessions with a Massage Therapist, depending on its size.
After successfully addressing or eliminating the trigger point, it is crucial for the guest to stay well-hydrated by consuming an ample amount of water. Furthermore, many therapists may suggest taking an Epsom salt bath to aid in the elimination of toxins and alleviate muscle soreness.
