Trigger point therapy

Trigger points are points of hyper irritability within a taught band of muscle or myofascia. They can cause pain and tension locally or can transfer pain to other areas of the body. Trigger points have set pain patterns so can be located and released through massage.

Myofascial release

Everything in the body is connected with a web of fascia (connective tissue). Imagine you had a pull in a thread of a knitted jumper. You could see how this would pull threads out of place in other areas of the jumper. This is what happens when fibers of the fascia get stuck together. Myofascial release works to release the fascia surrounding the muscles allowing the tissue to return to it's natural pliable condition.

Postural correction

Re-train posture for relief of discomfort and for optimal energy. Combine massage to release stuck areas and stretching and strengthening to correct muscle imbalances. 

Stretching

A blend of passive stretches, PNF stretching and active isolated stretching is used to stretch out the muscles after being worked on. See stretching page for more info.
