Trigger Point Therapy
*A trigger point affects a muscle by keeping it both tight and weak. It also maintains a hard contraction on the muscle fibers that it is a part of; therefore, keeping constant tension on the muscle's attachments and often producing symptoms in adjacent joints.

  • Breaks into the chemical and neurological feedback loop
    that maintains muscle contraction
  • Increases dirculation that has been restricted by the contracted tissue
  • Directly stretches the trigger points knotted muscle fibers
