At PalmLeaf Massage Clinic, we work with you to develop a treatment plan to help you achieve chronic and acute pain relief
Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy targets the source of the pain and releases it. Myofascial Trigger point therapy (myo meaning muscle, fascial meaning connective tissue) is a bodywork technique that involves the application of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body.
At PalmLeaf Massage Clinic we believe in the benefits of both spa and clinical massages. After all, you can’t relax when you’re in pain. A typical 90-minute session starts with an evaluation and clinical massage to address specific areas of acute or chronic pain and dysfunction.
Even if you think you have no pain, you almost certainly have areas of latent (hidden) muscle tension that are painful when pressure is applied. Pain patterns and their trigger points have been carefully mapped out for the entire body.(1) Releasing muscle knots has tremendous benefits that extend beyond the area being treated. For example, the true source of lower back pain can be tight muscles in the abdominal region. Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy is one of the main therapeutic techniques used at PalmLeaf Massage Clinic.
