Trigger Point Massage

Benefits of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy and Massage

Everyone has trigger points; the question is to what degree. If you have lingering pain, recurring headaches, tightness, or restriction of certain movements, you’re probably experiencing the effects of trigger points.

Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy (MTPT) is recognized by the American Academy of Pain Management as an effective treatment of myofascial pain and dysfunction.

Pain medications are harmful to the body if taken on a regular basis. Long term use will damage your liver and kidneys! Many times, they don't help very much or have unpleasant side effects. There are no guarantees that surgery will work.

Almost all common and chronic headaches and many migraines are caused by the activation of trigger points and can be eliminated or greatly reduced in frequency.
