Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points in the body, commonly known as "muscle knots" consist of tense and tight areas of muscle tissue that is frequently the source of pain. The source of the pain, however, may actually originate in other parts of the body. A trigger point or 'knot' in the back for example, may cause debilitating pain in the neck area. Qualified Massage Bliss massage therapists are trained and experienced to identify the source of muscle pain and administer treatments to provide lasting relief from chronic pain for our Spring Valley clients.
Identifying Trigger Points and Associated Conditions
Trigger points on the body are classified as either active or latent. Active points are the source of muscular pain. Qualified Massage Bliss practitioners apply effective treatment to release pain and physical tension at its source through massage treatment in an alternate area.
Relief for Decreased Mobility and Fibromyalgia
Latent trigger points, on the other hand, do not always correspond to pain in another part of the body and may cause discomfort only when constricted. Frequently the cause of stiff joints and declining mobility as we age, latent trigger points are also associated with chronic pain syndromes that include fibromyalgia.
Trigger Point Therapy for Sports Injuries
If you are experiencing muscle tension, tightness, or injury due to sports, trigger point therapy may be the perfect way to regain full mobility. Trigger point therapy is great for athletes and sports enthusiasts who are experiencing unexplained hip, neck, and lower back pain.
Many of our clients are shocked to learn that there was a solution to their acute sports injuries and nagging pain all along. By combining trigger point therapy with other forms of restorative health practices, we ensure that our clients stay in top shape all year round.

Trigger Points Are a Natural Part of Muscle Tissue
When considering whether trigger point therapy is right for you, it's important to understand the basics. Trigger points are areas of tension or muscle tissue knotting that naturally arise from everyday movements. Just like many other tissues in the body, muscle tissue can become quite sensitive when put under stress.
The goal of trigger point therapy is to work with the muscle tissues in their natural state. By carefully applying the correct amount of pressure in the right places, we will relieve the pain associated with this kind of muscle tension.
Trigger Point Therapy and Rehabilitation
Used as an effective complementary therapeutic technique, trigger point therapy can relieve pain. The problem is that trigger points may be the cause of pain and also caused by pain. In some cases, one's injuries may cause less pain than the trigger points that they create.
In order to increase the ability to recover from acute and chronic pain, trigger point therapy helps clients release their muscle tension. In doing so, it aims to lower the levels of pain, lessen stiffness, and increase mobility. The results that we have seen in our clinic are astounding!
Trigger Point Treatments for Mystery Pain
Many of our clients complain of sudden, mysterious pains that seem to come from nowhere and are not caused by anything in particular. In some cases, we've even seen individuals who believed they had a sudden toothache, but, after trigger point therapy, discovered it to be caused by tension in the muscles around their jaw.
There's no question that you should visit your doctor if you suddenly experience unaccountable pain. Only a professional medical practitioner can provide an adequate and reliable diagnosis. But alongside your trip to the doctor, be sure to stop in at our clinic and get a second opinion. Your mystery pain may be caused by something as normal as trigger points.
Can Trigger Point Therapy Help Me?
If you're not sure whether our massage therapists can help you, the best thing to do is call. We will arrange a consultation during which you can ask all the questions you have. We never perform massage techniques, like trigger therapy, on people who don't need it, or for those on whom it won't work.
The consultation and assessment are therefore, beneficial for both you and us. If another technique would be better suited to your needs, we will suggest it. Because everyone's body is built a little differently, there's no one-size-fits-all solution. We take an open, communicative, and honest approach to massage therapy that puts our clients first.
