This combines Swedish Massage techniques with slower, deeper, more intense pressure directed at specific muscle groups. You may be asked to participate with various breathing techniques, as the therapist assesses and eases into areas of embedded stress and spasm in your muscles. This relieves tension, smooths scar tissue and reduces inflammation. Trigger Points are described as “knots” usually caused by injury or overuse. They are tender areas of the muscle that unknowingly can cause chronic pain in other parts of your body T.P.T. can be slightly uncomfortable, but after provides for significant elimination of pain andreenergizing of the muscle tissue. The therapist will use various levels of sometimes intense and deep finger and hand pressures that can create a sharp or dull radiating ache, designed to increase the natural pain killers (endorphins) and simulate the source of the problem, as well as eliminate toxins. Most of our clients report lasting and immediate relief of long-termarthritic-type pain.
