Trigger Points are nodules (also known as knots) in the belly of the muscle, that cause frequent pain in localized areas. People tend to complain of tenderness in particular points and pain can increase over time, preventing muscles from working as good. With this technique, we are able to manipulate the muscle deeper and locate the exact point of a knot. Pressuring these areas with the fingers may be uncomfortable for the individual, but will cause the breakdown of these knots, removing them and deactivating the pain. Please be sure to drink plenty of water after any massage..
