Neuromuscular Massage

What is Neuromuscular or Trigger Point Therapy?

Sometimes confused with pressure point massage, this involves deactivating trigger points that may cause local pain or refer pain and other sensations, such as headaches, in other parts of the body.

Manual pressure, vibration, injection, or other treatment is applied to these points to relieve myofascial pain. Trigger points were first discovered and mapped by Janet G. Travell (president Kennedy's physician) and David Simons.

Trigger points have been photomicrographed and measured electrically.  In 2007 a paper was presented showing images of Trigger Points using MRI.  These points relate to dysfunction in the myoneural junction, also called neuromuscular junction (NMJ), in muscle, and therefore this modality is different from reflexology, acupressure and pressure point massage.

How Trigger Point Therapy Works

Trigger Point work is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage, you'll actively participate during the procedure through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.

The result of trigger point massage is the elimination of toxins in the muscles and the release of energizing endorphins.  A significant decrease in pain is often found after just one treatment.
