MYO TRIGGER is our signature massage for those seeking to repair damaged muscle and joint tissues and those experiencing chronic pains. More intense and targeted than the Swedish Unwind, this treatment utilizes trigger-point therapy and techniques from myofascial release to eliminate the painful knots that can often develop from living a modern lifestyle. Whether you’re sitting at a desk or putting in reps at the gym, this treatment aims to eliminate your discomfort by targeting the trigger points that cause you pain.
Trigger points, or muscle knots, are sensitive spots in soft tissue that often feel chronically sore and achy. Each muscle in the body contains potential trigger points that can become activated by muscle overuse, trauma, inflammation, or nerve damage. These nagging knots often play a major role in the various pains we experience as modern humans. Upper back pain, neck pain, and joint pain can often develop quickly as a result of muscle knots or trigger points that are left unreleased.
MYO TRIGGER seeks to alleviate pain and tension from these trigger points by directly targeting them. We begin by incorporating our restorative oil and aroma compounds to prepare the affected areas for deeper pressure and massage. Our therapists then focus directly on releasing painful trigger points, using intensive kneading and targeted pressure to promote blood and oxygen flow to the affected areas. This targeted approach is known to ease sensitivity and tightness, and even alleviate chronic pain. By breaking down these muscle knots and increasing circulation, you will experience a new sense of flexibility and range of motion in your muscles and joints.
In addition to targeting trigger points, MYO TRIGGER aims to melt away the tension and restriction in fascia tissue through myofascial massage. Fascia is a web of connective tissue that wraps around your muscles, bones, nerves, organs, and cells, serving to attach, enclose, and stabilize them together. It is not uncommon for this soft tissue to become restricted and tight for a variety of reasons. Stress, dehydration, muscle overuse, poor posture, and a sedentary lifestyle are a few contributing factors. Tight fascia can often lead to muscle tension, muscle pain, and limited muscle and joint mobility.
Our therapists will seek out myofascial tissues that feel stiff and tight, and proceed to gently massage. As normal myofascia should feel elastic and pliable to the touch, we will use light manual pressure to begin massaging and stretching the areas that feel rigid and tight. The process is then repeated several times on the same trigger point until the the tension is fully released. Myofascial release works to release the tension and tightness in your muscles by releasing trigger points across your body's network of muscle and connective tissue.
Musculoskeletal pain and body aches are a common symptom of today’s modern human, and restricted fascia and throbbing trigger points are often the culprit. Let our therapists understand exactly the pains and tension you deal with on a daily basis, and let our targeted MYO TRIGGER approach leave you feeling as if you were reborn.
MYO TRIGGER is available in 45, 60, and 75 minute increments.
